Brett Favre Sued for Sexual Harassment By Former Massage Therapists

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Brett Favre has been sued for sexual harassment by two former massage therapists for the New York Jets.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole filed suit against the retiring quarterback today in the Supreme Court of the State of New York.

Scavo alleges Favre sent another massage therapist text messages requesting that she and Scavo “get together” with him. She claims Favre treated her like a “hanging slab of meat” during his 2008 season with the Jets.

Court documents allege Favre sent messages reading, “Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone” and “Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have bad intentions.”

After Scavo’s husband called Favre to demand an apology, the Jets never again offered Scavo or O’Toole work, according to the lawsuit.

The suit also names Lisa Ripi, the woman who hired massage therapists for the team.

Last week, the NFL fined Favre $50,000 in the wake of allegations he text messaged photos of his genitals to Jets employee Jenn Sterger in 2008.
