Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has been accused of child abuse by the mother of his six-year-old child. A report from TMZ also quotes the mother, claiming McCoy reached out to her following his recent domestic abuse allegations to speak out on his behalf, even though she now regrets that decision.
“I regret ever agreeing to help LeSean McCoy in this case,” the mother of McCoy’s son says in the TMZ article. “I feel like I am sending our son to a monster every two weeks.”
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the mother says she believes McCoy abused their son on multiple occasions, even sharing pictures you can see here. (Keep in mind, these may be difficult to view.) Following the July home invasion of McCoy’s estranged girlfriend — where she was allegedly assaulted and her friends accused McCoy of being involved in addition to abusing his children — the mother of McCoy’s six-year-old son posted a message on Instagram clearing McCoy on any wrongdoing regarding their joint son.
Now, the woman is saying that was posted with her permission by one of McCoy’s friends to her account and is not true.
She also says she overheard McCoy saying, “I need to get this bitch out of my house,” prior to the assault allegations. While she can’t know if he was talking about the estranged girlfriend at the time, it was allegedly the day before the break in and alleged assault occurred.
In exchange for compliance with the Instagram post, McCoy promised the mother of his son that he would not seek custody of their child and that she would be free to enroll him in school in Miami. Currently, he is home schooled, per McCoy’s request.
This comes days after reports from NFL headquarters that said with the absence of new information, McCoy would not be disciplined by the league. This could lead to a stint on the Commissioner’s exempt list while the league and team sort out the mess. That would keep McCoy off the field for the foreseeable future.
You can go here to see a recent post from the mother of McCoy’s son, which was shared on Instagram in regards to their son. Keep in mind, this includes sensitive images, including an alleged photo and video of McCoy’s son bruised up.
McCoy has posted a statement denying the claims while sharing pictures and videos of his son appearing happy.
