UPDATE: Trent Brown responded to the allegations against him on Twitter Wednesday. He was not at Raiders practice due to a calf strain according to the team.
I am aware that my ex-girlfriend has filed a civil suit against me. I deny the claims. They are false. I believe in the court system where I will clear my name. I will not be making any further comment at this time.

The lawsuit filed in Alameda County Superior Court in California accuses Brown of slapping, punching and choking the the woman on multiple occasions. She said she has been “bruised, bloodied and battered” from the attacks and lived in fear of Brown, according to ESPN. The first police report was filed in June 2019 where he was accused of bruising her arm and slapping her.
According to the lawsuit, Brown and the woman have been together since March 2017 and had a child in January of this year. Brown is also being accused of a death threat, as he allegedly told the her, “I’ll shoot yo ass in the f—ing head before you walk out that door with my son.” She says Brown kicked her out of the house in June.
The accuser is requesting a jury trial.
Brown, 26, was selected by the 49ers in the seventh round of the 2015 draft. Brown was traded to the Patriots in 2018, and signed a four-year, $66 million contract ($36.75 million guaranteed) with the Oakland Raiders last offseason.
