Former NFL quarterback Warren Moon has gotten himself into some hot water after a California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by him accused him of some various serious allegations.
The woman filed a lawsuit on Monday and claims she was demoted by the firm in October after she complained about the current Seattle Seahawks broadcaster sexual advances.
Here’s what his former assistant is alleging via The Washington Post:
“A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging that the retired football star required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, Calif., also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman’s crotch during a trip to Seattle this year. The suit further accuses Moon of pulling off the woman’s bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a separate trip to Mexico in October.
When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that “his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement,” the lawsuit states.
The plaintiff, Wendy Haskell, 32, was hired as Moon’s executive assistant in July and traveled with him on a weekly basis for speaking engagements, charity events and personal appearances, according to the lawsuit.”
Those are some pretty damning allegations thrown at the hall of fame QB, so we’ll see how this plays out in the coming months and if the Seahawks part ways with Moon as a result.
