A new statement from the attorney representing LeSean McCoy’s ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon may shed some light on the unfolding situation between the two estranged exes.
Previously, a woman identifying herself as Cordon’s best friend posted photos of Cordon’s bruised and bloodied face on Instagram on Tuesday and claimed that McCoy was responsible, accusations that McCoy called baseless and vehemently denied.
Now, a press release by Cordon’s attorney Tanya Mitchell Graham alleges that Cordon was physically assaulted during a home invasion by a male assailant who specifically demanded jewelry that McCoy had previously given to Cordon as a gift, and which he repeatedly asked her to return.
Cordon had returned to the Georgia home she shared with Cordon on July 9 and was sleeping when the male assailant entered the home at approximately 3 a.m. “with no signs of forced entry,” the release, dated July 10, claimed. The statement said that the assailant then proceeded to assault Cordon, hitting her in the face with a firearm multiple times and demanding the jewelry McCoy had previously given her, as well as cash. Cordon’s attorney alleged that McCoy previously requested Cordon return the jewelry numerous times, but Cordon refused. McCoy suggested often that Cordon was at risk of getting robbed due to the value of the pieces, Graham said.
Cordon and her children have been residing in the home with McCoy since October of 2016, the release stated. It is unclear if Cordon’s children were present during the invasion, but Cordon’s female cousin was reportedly also at the home at the time of the incident and the assailant is alleged to have hit her in the back of the head with a firearm during the attack, according to the release.
McCoy and Cordon are currently engaged in a dispute regarding an attempted eviction, with McCoy reportedly having enlisted family and friends to evict Cordon from the home on one occasion last month while they were both out of town, according to Graham’s statement. The attempt was unsuccessful after Cordon saw what was happening via a livestream of footage from her surveillance cameras and called the police. Cordon’s lawyer described the eviction proceedings as “ongoing” in the release.
McCoy has not contacted Cordon since the attack, Graham’s statement also alleged.
The Buffalo Bills running back denied all allegations against him on Tuesday, shortly after the Instagram post featuring Cordon’s bloodied face was posted online.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months,” his statement read.
McCoy has since hired Atlanta defense attorney Don Samuel, according to WSB-TV reporter Mike Petchenik. Samuel told Petchenik that he’s “getting up to speed on the case” and will be speaking to police and Cordon’s attorney on July 11.
