LeSean McCoy denies most recent accusation of domestic abuse by ex-girlfriend

McCoy’s ex-girlfriend continues to edit her lawsuit, adding claims.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has again denied that he ever abused anyone, including his ex-girlfriend and the son they share. This comes on the heels of new domestic abuse allegations by his former girlfriend, who added testimony to her lawsuit originally filed in reference to her home invasion assault this summer.

McCoy’s ex-girlfriend, who we are choosing not to name now that she claims to be a victim of assault, filed the amended paper work in Georgia today, according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak. She had previously denied that McCoy had ever abused her, including declining to answer a question on the subject last week at a news conference.

McCoy is extremely strong and was heavy-handed,” the lawsuit claims. “He would often grab Plaintiff in a manner that was painful and would leave Plaintiff’s skin reddened. McCoy did not care who was around when he would become enraged. McCoy once physically kicked Plaintiff out of the bed.”

”To make up for his behavior, McCoy would often apologize and even buy Plaintiff’s gifts. Because she truly loved McCoy, and she believed that he truly loved her, Plaintiff sought to make their relationship work despite the fact that McCoy was physically abusive to her. Further, Plaintiff did not want to cause hurt or damage to McCoy’s reputation as a professional football player, and she never revealed the alarming realities of being in a relationship with McCoy before filing the instant litigation.”

Also added to the lawsuit today is a claim of animal abuse toward a dog.

McCoy has denied all of the claims at every turn, including today when he asked reporters, “Ugh, what did I do now?”

McCoy’s ex-girlfriend has been making headlines every week or two to levy news charges, make new claims, or hold a press conference in what feels like a never-ending cycle.

“I can’t control that,” he continued. “All I can do is just focus in on my team, try to get better and let the things off the field take care of themselves.”

Further asked, McCoy continued to proclaim his innocence and say he is focused on the field and his future. He did not say if he has been interviewed by Milton, Georgia police.
