“He suddenly and violently kissed me. And when I push him away and ask, “What are you doing?” The last time I was pushing him off, and I could see on the cameras that someone was outside the office door, I was begging for someone to come help because he’s enormous and massive,” Vaughn said. “And then he continued to do it two more times.
Jackson Denies Accusations
Through Brandon Davies, Jackson’s attorney, has refuted the allegations. “We have given law enforcement the resources and data they require to assess Jackson’s accusers. Every human encounter must be considered in its right perspective, according to Davies.
“Releasing a brief excerpt from any video without correct context is inappropriate. We trust the procedure and anticipate a speedy conclusion to the issue. Our inquiry turned up a lot of material disproving Jackson’s accuser’s accusations, including witness testimony, the lawyer continued.
Brittany, Jackson’s sister-in-law, also criticised his detractors on her Instagram story. “They lack knowledge. He is merely a person trying to navigate life, and until you spend a day in his shoes (which no one will ever do), you have no right to criticise him. It’s best to just stop talking, she advised.
The Influencer has been Embroiled in Several Controversies
Jackson has previously grabbed news for the incorrect reasons. The influencer has a lengthy history of controversy and has frequently appeared at events with his NFL star brother.
He allegedly made derogatory remarks about the Mahomes family in September 2021, at which point the fan from the Baltimore Ravens was doused with water during a game. Jackson experienced intense blowback as a result of the incident.
At the moment, his brother stood up for him and said, “He takes a lot and he’s generally really good at it. He will take this as a lesson and do his best to avoid those folks going forward. Additionally, a picture of Jackson dancing was taken at the 2007-deceased football player Sean Taylor’s memorial. Later, he expressed regret for the occurrence.
