Then [Rep. Adam] Schiff made up what I actually said by lying to Congress," Trump said in a series of tweets.

The suit says that the two lost touch after Taylor transferred to LSU and Brown was drafted to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011. 

After she graduated, Taylor opened up Taylor'ed Gymnastics Training Center in 2016 in Memphis. 

According to the lawsuit, the two reconnected in June 2017, when Brown "indicated he wanted Ms. Taylor's help improving flexibility and strength in his ankles and fast-twitch muscles — areas in which she had developed expertise through gymnastics."

Taylor agreed to "provide physical training services to Brown."

The initial lawsuit lists five separate causes of action.

Brown allegedly raped Taylor in his home after visiting a nightclub in Brown's native city of Miami, according to the initial suit.

The suit also alleges two separate instances of sexual battery, one instance of false imprisonment, emotional distress and invasion of privacy. 

Taylor's statement, released by her attorney, said: "As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision. I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault. Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape. I will cooperate with the NFL and any other agencies; however, at this time, I respectfully request that the media please respect my privacy.”

Brown was released by the Patriots after a Sports Illustrated report revealed that he sent intimidating text messages to another woman accusing Brown of misconduct. 

Brown is currently unsigned by any NFL team, but indicated on social media in late September that he would continue to pursue a career in the NFL. 

"I'm still the best why stop now," Brown tweeted.
