(WSCR) – After the year that he has had, Brett Favre may have wanted his exit from the NFL to be quiet. If that was the case, it doesn’t look like he will get that wish.
Two massage therapists say in a lawsuit that complaining about sexually suggestive text messages from Favre cost them their part-time jobs with the New York Jets.
Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole sued the Minnesota Vikings quarterback, the Jets and a Jets massage coordinator Monday in a Manhattan court. The lawsuit comes days after the NFL fined Favre $50,000 for not being candid in an investigation into allegations that he sent lewd text messages and photos to a Jets game hostess.
Favre’s agent didn’t immediately return a telephone call. The Jets declined to comment.
The lawsuit says Favre send a third, unidentified massage therapist a 2008 text message asking whether she and Scavo “want to get together” and suggesting he had “bad intentions.”
