The woman who accused football player Antonio Brown of raping her said he told her ‘you made me feel like a real rapist’ when she confronted him after the alleged assault

A personal trainer who accused New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown of violently raping her said in a lawsuit filed on Tuesday that the football player told her "you made me feel like a real rapist" when she confronted him the day after the alleged incident.

In a federal lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida, fitness trainer Britney Taylor accused Brown of exposing himself to her, kissing her without consent, masturbating and ejaculating on her without her consent, and forcibly raping her.

Brown denied "each and every allegation" in the lawsuit in a statement published by his attorney. The statement said any sexual interaction between Brown and Taylor was "entirely consensual."

Taylor alleges in her lawsuit that Brown "used manipulation and false promised to lure her into his world, and once there, he sexually assaulted and raped her."

The pair met in a bible study while they were students at Central Michigan University in 2010, and Taylor later became Brown's personal trainer, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice in 2017 and raped her in May 2018. He was playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers at the time.

It also alleges that following an incident in May 2018 in which Brown "cornered Ms. Taylor, forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress, and forcibly raped her," she confronted him about what happened.

According to the lawsuit, Taylor had fled Brown's house crying after the alleged assault, leaving behind her belongings. The next day, she returned to pick them up, the lawsuit said.

"She courageously approached Brown, telling him they 'needed to talk about last night.' He replied, 'You made me feel like a real rapist,'" according to the lawsuit.

Taylor, who now lives in Tennessee, said in the lawsuit that in the aftermath of the incident she lost 30 pounds, had near-daily panic attacks and frequent suicidal thoughts, and fell into a deep depression.

She first reported the alleged incidents to #TimesUpNow in January 2019, though she did not name Brown, the lawsuit said. She then filed a civil suit after speaking to a former assistant district attorney and sex crimes prosecutor at her church.

NFL leaders are meeting on Wednesday to discuss the allegations. Brown could be put on the the Commissioner's Exempt list, which would make him ineligible to play, according to the Washington Post.

No criminal charges have been filed against Brown, though he could face punishment by the NFL under its personal conduct policy.
