Two more lawsuits are slated to be filed against former Texan QB Deshaun Watson, bringing the total to 26, sources say

Former Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson continues to face legal troubles as attorney Tony Buzbee is in the process of filing two more lawsuits against the embattled NFL star, bringing the total to 26, KPRC 2 has learned.

The number of accusers is rising after more women came forward and claim Watson had inappropriate contact with them during the massage therapy sessions.

KPRC2 legal analyst Brian Wice says Watson faces a difficult outlook.

“With each subsequent lawsuit, this litigation continues to reach Defcon 1,” Wice said. “Deshaun Watson is caught in a hailstorm in West Texas. He can’t walk. He can’t hide and he can’t stop it from stopping.”

The case has made national headlines as one sordid story after another unfolds from the alleged victims. Watson was acquitted of all criminal charges, but the matter has become a civil matter. However, he and his attorney Rusty Hardin maintain Watson’s innocence.

From the beginning, Buzbee has represented every accuser and said his number one goal is to get justice.

After the 24th lawsuit was filed last week, Buzbee said the “brave women who, despite ridicule, legal shenanigans and intense media scrutiny, continue to stand firm for what is right.”

The first 22 lawsuits were filed in March and April 2021. After that, more women came forward, some even conducting interviews on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”


Watson has been accused by massage therapists of harassing, assaulting or touching them on appointments while he was with the Houston Texans. Documents show that he found most women through the social media platform Instagram. In most cases, the women were paid as little as $100 for their services.

In many of the complaints on file, women allege that Watson exposed himself and masturbated in front of them, and rarely apologized for his alleged behavior.

Hardin admits Watson had consensual sexual activity with three of the women, but stressed that the NFL superstar did not force anyone to do anything against their will. The famous lawyer recently came under scrutiny after he said during a radio interview that “happy endings” aren’t against the law.

Watson, a three-time Pro Bowl QB, recently signed a fully guaranteed five-year, $230 million contract with the Cleveland Browns despite his legal entanglements and pending cases.

In addition to the legal issues, Watson also faces a possible suspension from the NFL, which is independently investigating his conduct to determine if he violated the league’s personal conduct guidelines.
