Manziel Sexual Harassment Lawsuit is a Hoax

May 23, 2014

Updated at 12:30 p.m.

Football star Johnny Manziel's agent says a legal document circulating online that alleges a litany of sexual harassment complaints against the recently-drafted NFL player is either a fake or simply bogus.

Samantha Schacher, the purported plaintiff in the lawsuit, says the lawsuit is a hoax.

"It's a shame you're taking advantage of the legal system. You're playing with people's reputations and careers and it's hurtful," she told TMZ Friday.

Deadspin reported Friday that a “tipster” had sent them a document purported to be a lawsuit filed against Manziel by Schacher. TIME has confirmed that the document in question, which is riddled with grammatical errors, has been filed in federal district court in Florida.

The allegations include that Manziel sent Schacher a photo of his genitals in a hot dog bun and numerous incidents that carry the implication Manziel has small genitalia.

“Manzeil sent me a homemade video of himself at Walt Disney World on "It's a Small World" ride in the Magic Kingdom, and while the song is on, he puts the camera down and unbuttons his pants, pulls his penis out and jingles his penis to the music,” says one allegation.

The lawsuit seeks $25 million in damages.
