NFL player LeSean McCoy has denied allegations that he abused a woman, child, and animal, in addition to taking performance-enhancing drugs.
The accusations surfaced on Tuesday, after a social media user claiming to be the best friend of a woman named Delicia Cordon posted a photo of Cordon’s bruised, bloodied face, which they claimed McCoy was responsible for.
“@shadymccoy is THE DEVIL!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure,” read the Instagram post’s caption.
“Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage ... all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!!”
The post goes on to call McCoy a woman, animal, and child abuser via hashtags, tagging the NFL, entertainment news site TMZ, and the Buffalo Bills.
“I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!! This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!!”
The post has since been removed from Instagram. McCoy denied the allegations via social media on Tuesday.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” his statement reads. “Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
The nature of the relationship between McCoy and Cordon is unclear. Cordon may be McCoy’s girlfriend, as Fox News reports. Conversely, TMZ Sports reports that McCoy and Cordon are actually exes, and that McCoy sued Cordon in June to force her to move out of the home that he owns.
In court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, McCoy reportedly referred to Cordon as the “ex-girlfriend of owner/plaintiff” who “refuses to leave.”
The Buffalo Bills are aware of the allegations against McCoy and are looking into it, according to an ESPN reporter.
A woman going by the name “Mary Roe” sued McCoy in 2013, claiming that he assaulted her before kicking her off of a party bus, the Huffington Post reports. However, McCoy’s lawyer stated that no criminal charges were pending and probable cause was never found, according to Fox News.
