Massage Therapists Levy Accusations Against Brett Favre
Former three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre, 42, is coming under fire over allegations that he was instrumental in getting two female massage therapists fired from the New York Jets.
Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole allegedly received provocative texts from Favre when he was the quarterback in the 2008 season, reports SportsGrid.com. The women reportedly objected to these texts, and when one of their husbands demanded that Favre apologize, they lost their jobs.
This is not the first scandal to involve Favre and his brief time in New York. He was fined $50,000 by the NFL in 2010 after being found not forthcoming in an investigation over allegations that he had sent dirty text messages and photos of his penis to Jenn Sterger, an employee of the Jets. The photos then made their way onto the sports site Deadspin.
Favre retired after the 2010 season, having played for the Minnesota Vikings. He is best remembered as a member of the Green Bay Packers, a team he led to victory in Super Bowl XXXI after the 1996 season. He is currently working as an assistant high school football coach in Mississippi.
