Janel Grant alleges that Vince McMahon caused her harm using sex toys named after WWE stars and also exploited her by sending her to other employees.
Rumor has it that Vince McMahon, the mastermind behind World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), is facing a lawsuit from a former employee who claims he sexually abused her during what is describes as a consensual affair.
The woman, Janel Grant, alleges that McMahon defecated on her head during a threesome in 2020, trafficked her to other WWE executives, and abused her with sex toys named after wrestlers, according to The New York Post.
Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that the WWE was investigating an alleged $3 million hush money Vince McMahon made to an employee parting ways with the company. Grant claims that McMahon made a $1 million hush money payment to her, but nothing more.
During WWE’s investigation, it revealed that McMahon, the executive chair of WWE’s parent company TKO Group Holdings, made nearly $15 million in payments to several women accusing him of sexual misconduct.
The toys named after wrestlers reportedly caused bruising and bleeding, and the lawsuit claims that McMahon locked the victim in a private locker room and raped her on a ma*sage table. It also alleges that McMahon shared nude photos and explicit videos with other employees and instructed her to have sex with other employees, including wrestlers.
John Laurinaitis, another defendant, is accused of being ordered to have sex with Grant.
Following these allegations, Vince McMahon stepped down, denying the claims and expressing his intention to clear his name.
“I stand by my prior statement that Ms. Grant’s lawsuit is replete with lies, obscene made-up instances that never occurred, and is a vindictive distortion of the truth,” he said in a statement Friday night.
“However, out of respect for the WWE Universe, the extraordinary TKO business and its board members and shareholders, partners and constituents, and all of the employees and Superstars who helped make WWE into the global leader it is today, I have decided to resign from my executive chairmanship and the TKO board of directors, effective immediately.”
As of now, McMahon has not faced criminal charges related to the lawsuit.
