Last week, the retired (again) quarterback received a $50,000 fine from the NFL for not cooperating with the league’s investigation into the Jenn Sterger dirty-texting case, but his legal troubles could just be beginning: Two former Jets massage therapists, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, filed a sexual-harassment lawsuit today against Favre, the Jets, and Lisa Ripi, a woman who hires massage therapists for the team.
Via ABC News:
Scavo said that in 2008 while Favre was with the New York Jets, he treated her like a “hanging slab of meat.” In the suit she claims he wanted a three-way with her and another therapist.
Favre allegedly texted the unidentified therapist, writing, “Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone,” according to the lawsuit.
Favre allegedly sent another text message reading, “Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have bad intentions.”
Scavo, who says she refused Favre’s advances, says she had her husband, Joseph, call Favre to demand an apology, and when he did, according to the suit, Favre “responded in an inappropriate manner and refused.” Scavo claims in the suit that neither she nor O’Toole were offered work with the team again.
In the lawsuit, they describe the Jets locker room and training camp as “a hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior.” (The Jets did not immediately respond to ABC News’ calls for comment.) And if you’re curious, Deadspin confirms that these are indeed the same massage therapists who reached out to them (and the Post) after the original scandal broke back in October.
