According to Florio, a lawsuit was filed on Monday in a California civil court on behalf of Diorra Marzette-Sanders, who has accused Brown of slapping her “across the face leaving her mouth bloody and her face bruised” and has “bruised, bloodied and battered” her on multiple occasions. Beyond that Marzette-Sanders says Brown threatened to “shoot yo ass in the f–king head” after she told him she would leave with their son.
Back in March, Brown allegedly “grabbed her face and covered her mouth while choking her out until she couldn’t breathe,” leaving “a ring of bruises around her neck.”
A separate incident occurred in April in which Brown allegedly “grabbed Plaintiff’s arm, took her into a room, locked the door, slapped her across the face and punched her in the ribs” while they were on vacation in Hawaii.
A third incident took place in June with Marzette-Sanders claiming Brown slapped her in the face, which resulted in police being called to the scene and a police report being filed.
Brown posted the following on his Twitter account Wednesday regarding the news:
I am aware that my ex-girlfriend has filed a civil suit against me. I deny the claims. They are false. I believe in the court system where I will clear my name. I will not be making any further comment at this time.

The NFL will likely conduct their own investigation into the matter while matter plays out.
Brown, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2015. He was traded to the Patriots last year in a pick swap.

In 2019, Brown has appeared in five games for the Raiders and made five starts at right tackle.
