After a Pittsburgh doctor told Sports Illustrated that Antonio Brown repeatedly farted on his face, the New England Patriots wide receiver shared a screenshot appearing to show the doctor joking about the incident.
The doctor, Victor Prisk, who now owns his own orthopedics and wellness clinic in Pittsburgh, filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania claiming Brown owes him $11,500 in unpaid fees. In a Sports Illustrated article published earlier this week, he said Brown repeatedly farted in his face during a consultation and laughed about it.
The NFL player published screenshots of text messages on his Instagram story on Wednesday night, claiming that they were between him and Prisk.
The incident comes as Brown, in the past two weeks, has been accused of sexual assault by two women— including his former trainer. Prisk’s accusations, as well as others detailed in SI’s article, have turned him into a subject of mockery.
The texts, from August 2018, show Prisk sharing a TMZ article about the farting incident, calling it “funny as s—,” and using several laughing emojis.
“What a year difference,” Brown said in the Instagram story. “Do anything for clout.”
Prisk ended up taking Brown on as a regular client, though he told Sports Illustrated that Brown never paid for his sessions.
The doctor recalled the farting incident to Sports Illustrated, calling it “childish.”
Brown was recently accused of sexual assault and rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, who filed a lawsuit against him last week.
After the allegations became public, Sports Illustrated published an article detailing Prisk’s claims, as well as allegations from an unnamed woman who also accused Brown of sexual assault.
Brown and his legal team have denied both claims of sexual assault.
According to the Bleacher Report, police have also been involved in three domestic disputes involving Brown over the last four years.
