DESHAUN Watson's girlfriend took to Instagram to share a gushing birthday tribute amid a slew of sex assault allegations against the NFL star.
Singer and model Jilly Anais — who has been dating Watson since 2019 — shared a handful of photos on social media on Tuesday to celebrate her boyfriend's 26th birthday.
Anais, 25, captioned her Instagram post: "Happy Birthday LoveBug!
"Walking hand in hand with you 4L."
The social media influencer, who has more than 2.6million Instagram followers, shared photos of her and her beloved Texans quarterback from a recent vacation.
In all of the photos, Anais and Watson were captured smiling with their arms around each other.
They were photographed at a beach, inside what appears to be a charter airplane, out to dinner, and in a mirror selfie.
Hours later, Watson shared a video clip to his Instagram story of a gift he received from Anais.
Watson tagged Anais in the story and wrote: "Babygirl done got me the All Black Iced Out Cartier with the Slime Green Face."
On Amais' YouTube channel, the model revealed that she met Watson in a Los Angeles restaurant after the two apparently locked eyes while she was eating sushi.
The birthday posts come after twenty-two women filed complaints against Watson alleging him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions in 2020 — something which Amais has not commented on.
On March 16, Watson denied the allegations in a Twitter post, insisting he has "never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect."
On March 18, he shared a letter from the NFL confirming that the league had opened an investigation into Watson.
"I am writing to let you know that the League has opened an investigation into these allegations and to request the cooperation of your clients in our investigation," the letter said.
Back in April, the allegations prompted Nike and Beats by Dre to drop their endorsement deals with the football star
That same month, Watson's attorneys denied all claims of sexual misconduct against the quarterback and instead pointed to some of the complainants who continued to work with Watson after they said he acted inappropriately with them.
"These lawsuits are replete with mischaracterizations of Mr. Watson's conduct," said Rusty Hardin, a lawyer representing Watson. "These range from being misleading, to fraudulent, to slanderous."
Many of the suits involve women who had been hired to give Watson massages, and Houston lawyer, Tony Buzbee claimed that he had been speaking to several other alleged victims.
The third female masseuse to come forward against Watson claimed that in a December 2020 encounter, the QB forced her to perform oral sex on him.
The alleged victim said that Watson asked her to focus on his "inner thighs and glutes" during the massage, according to TMZ.
In the suit, the woman reportedly alleged that Watson "got more aggressive" and eventually coerced her into performing oral sex.
The women reportedly said she was so scared that she blacked out and defecated on herself.
Other women have made similar claims involving Watson scheduling massages over social media and asking them to focus on his groin area, according to suits.
Many of the victims say Watson exposed himself to them during massage sessions, and, in once instance, the football star is accused of touching a woman's hand with his erect penis.
