Just five games into a four-year, $66 million deal to anchor the right side of the Raiders offensive line, Trent Brown has reportedly run into a civil lawsuit alleging that he threatened and harmed the mother of his son. She said she lived in fear of Brown after she had been "bruised, bloodied and battered" from the attacks. They are false. I believe in the court system where I will clear my name.

According to the lawsuit, Marzette-Sanders accused the 6-foot-8, 380-pound Brown of slapping her, hitting her and choking her at different times and threatening to shoot her in the "head before you walk out that door with my son". The NFL will surely investigate the situation and release a statement soon, as well as Coach Gruden and the Oakland Raiders.

Brown has now responded on social media, denying the allegations while noting he'll have no further comment at this time.

Brown was at Raiders practice on Wednesday, but did not participate, and was seen rehabbing. "Not going to say anything else, but we're aware of it".

"And there are some that are irreversible", said Rubio, who was a Trump rival for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. He answered reporters' questions as he met at the White House with Italian President Sergio Mattarella.

The woman behind the allegations, Diorra Marzette-Sanders, is Brown's ex-girlfriend.

Brown and Sanders started dating in March 2017 and had a child together in January 2019, the lawsuit states. In an email to ESPN, an NFL spokesman said the league "will review the matter". She says Brown kicked her out of the house in June.

She is seeking unspecified compensation and a jury trial.
