The attorney, Tony Buzbee, made the accusation after Watson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, said Thursday during a court appearance that Buzbee’s clients also had deleted or altered messages on social media. All of these messages are considered evidence that could help show whether the Houston Texans star engaged in sexual misconduct with these women during massage sessions.

Judges order multiple women suing Texans QB Deshaun Watson must reveal names

  Judges order multiple women suing Texans QB Deshaun Watson must reveal names The attorney who represents all 22 women suing Texans QB Deshaun Watson said nine plaintiffs had agreed to refile lawsuits under their names.The orders came during separate hearings in Harris County District Court, after Watson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, filed emergency motions requesting that the women be required to refile their complaints under their legal names within two business days.

“Once we get those phones, whether you deleted something or not, Deshaun Watson, we’re going to know everything you’ve ever written and ever said and ever sent,” Buzbee said during a court conference Thursday in Houston that was livestreamed. “And the same is true on our side.”

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

Hardin said in court Thursday he believed some of the plaintiffs “have been destroying and altering some of their previous postings.” He also said he feared it would continue to happen without an order from the court.

Buzbee replied that Hardin is “flat-out wrong” and said he sent a letter to Watson’s legal team to preserve both of Deshaun Watson’s phones “that I know he owns.”

Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor: A Timeline of Their Romance

  Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor: A Timeline of Their Romance Heating up! Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor’s whirlwind romance has fans buzzing. The Saturday Night Live star and the Bridgerton actress first sparked romance rumors in March 2021 after being spotted together in the U.K. An eyewitness told Stoke-on-Trent Live at the time that she caught the pair packing on the PDA as they walked together in Caverswall, England. “We saw them holding hands and hugging each other,” she said. It wasn’t long before Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that the pair were officially dating long-distance. “Pete and Phoebe are still going strong despite not being able to physically spend time together,” a source revealed in April 2021 while Dynevor was filming across the pond. “They keep in touch over text and FaceTime. Right now, they’re just focused on work. … They’re not looking to rush things.” The insider shared that it was Davidson’s sense of humor that drew Dynevor in, telling Us, “They’re happy with each other. He makes her laugh. Pete is a good guy and definitely a charmer. He’s easy-going and fun to be around.” The stand-up comedian seemingly confirmed the relationship later that month. “I’m with my celebrity crush,” he told Marquette University students during a Zoom call when asked whether he had his eye on someone special. The couple both appeared to show off their new romance with a nod to one another in matching initial necklaces.

“And I know that after I sent that letter, Deshaun Watson unsent … his Instagram messages to many of my clients.”

One of Buzbee’s clients filed a lawsuit in late March that said Watson is “deleting Instagram messages” as a result of the lawsuits against him.

Hardin then issued a statement in response:

“Deshaun regularly deletes past Instagram messages. That said, he has not deleted any messages since March 15th, the day before the first lawsuit was filed.”

Both sides had sent notices to the other to preserve evidence. After listening to both sides, Judge Rabeea Sultan Collier did not take further action on the matter.

“I have full confidence the lawyers understand there are severe penalties in destroying or altering evidence,” she said in Harris County, Texas. “And it sounds as if both sides have sent over preservation of evidence notices to the other side.”

She said the court will deal with evidence destruction issues if they come up.

Houston Texans' Deshaun Watson describes women's lawsuits as 'money grab'

  Houston Texans' Deshaun Watson describes women's lawsuits as 'money grab' Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson filed his first official answer to the 22 lawsuits that accuse him of sexual misconductWatson’s version of events came Monday in his first official answer to the 22 lawsuits that have been filed against him since March 16. Many of the women say he exposed himself and caused them to touch his genitals during massage sessions after contacting them on Instagram for their services.

Watson, 25, faces civil lawsuits by 22 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions in 2020 and early 2021, including two who say he forced them to perform oral sex. Hardin issued a statement this week that says all 22 women are lying and also described it as a money grab in court documents filed Monday. Hardin previously said there were “sometimes consensual encounters” involving Watson.

The incidents allegedly took place in four different states, mostly in the Houston area. Many allege similar details in their lawsuits -- They said they didn’t know Watson before he contacted them for massage services on Instagram and that Watson exposed himself and caused them to touch his genitals during the sessions.

The women did not initially contact the police and instead went to Buzbee, who filed suit on their behalf seeking compensatory damages. Both the Houston police and the NFL are investigating the matter.

Hardin also said Thursday that his legal team has not yet been able to identify four of the plaintiffs and sought Social Security and driver’s license numbers from Buzbee to be able to know who is suing Watson. Buzbee said he would work the matter out with Hardin.
