The woman who accused Dallas Cowboys star, Ezekiel Elliott of domestic violence recently admitted she discussed using their sex tapes for blackmail.
Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott has been all the team have asked for and then some on the football field. But, turmoil has been a constant presence off the field since he was drafted in April of 2016.
Currently, Elliott is due to serve a six-game suspension handed down by the NFL this season. Elliott has been accused of domestic violence via ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson and is currently appealing the suspension.
But as reported by Yahoo! Sports Charles Robinson, Elliott’s case could take a swift and sudden turn. Robinson reports that Thompson admitted to NFL investigators that she discussed via text message, she considered selling sex videos of her and Elliott for blackmail.
The exchange is contained in the 160-page report prepared by NFL investigators into allegations that Elliott committed multiple acts of violence against ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson. Within that report, investigators noted a September 2016 text message exchange between Thompson and a friend, in which Thompson raised the idea of selling sex videos of herself and Elliott. During the conversation, Thompson’s friend suggested, “we could black mail him w[ith] that,” to which Thompson responded, “I want to bro.” The NFL’s report also stated that Thompson admitted registering an email address titled “ezekielelliott sex vids” in August 2016.
While Thompson’s exchange doesn’t support Elliott’s innocence, it could potentially raise reasonable doubt for her motives. For Elliott, the fact still remains that as a young NFL star, he must be aware of his behavior at all times. Especially as the star running back of the Dallas Cowboys. If he chooses not to, he could face a lengthier disciplinary action via the NFL.
