The Ezekiel Elliott case involving a woman accusing him of domestic violence in 2016, has taken another interesting turn.
According to Yahoo Sports, the alleged victim in the case discussed, with a friend, the possibility of leveraging sex tapes involving Elliott and the victim to get money from the former Ohio State star.
Yahoo Sports acquired a 160-page document that contains the findings of NFL investigators. The document, which led to Elliott’s six-game suspension, contains a conversation of Elliott’s accuser discussing sex tapes and mentioning blackmail.
The NFL acquired a transcript of the text message conversation (found in Exhibit 74 in the NFL’s appendix of the document), which Yahoo Sports published.
[Accuser]: What if I sold mine and Ezekiel’s sex videos
[Friend]: We’d all be millionaires
[Friend]: We could black mail him w that
[Accuser]: I want to bro
[Friend]: Let’s do it
[Friend]: Id be like look give me 10k or I’ll just sell our sex videos for the same amount flat
[Friend]: Me and my friends tryna go on vacation and get boob jobs
(the report notes a pair of blank texts)
[Accuser]: 10k B**ch I want 20k
[Accuser]: Go big or go home
[Friend]: That’s fine too
[Friend]: Like what
This comes after the NFL conducted a nearly year-long investigation into Elliott, who has not been charged with any crimes related to the domestic violence allegations, according to The Columbus Dispatch.
The NFL Players Association vehemently fought back against the accuser, saying, according to Yahoo Sports, that the accuser’s “Highly Inappropriate Conduct – Including Contemplated Extortion – Punctuates Her Lack Of Credibility.”
Elliott has been the subject of domestic violence allegations for more than a year. According to the Dispatch the allegations were filed in July 2016.
