Share

Monday night it was reported by Bloomberg.com that a former NFL Network employee has filed a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises, alleging that she was the victim of sexual harassment during her time as an employee of the network.

The former NFL Network executive also allegedly made several lewd comments, such as telling Cantor she is "making him hard" and she "should be getting f--ed every day".

Weinberger, who is now president of Bill Simmons's media group, is accused of sending nude pictures and explicit texts along with telling Cantor she was "put on earth to pleasure me". He also allegedly told her to touch his crotch and that she was "put on earth to pleasure me". Faulk, who's an NFL Network analyst, would ask Cantor "deeply personal and invasive questions" about her sex life and fondled her breasts and groped her behind, according to the complaint.

Former network analyst Donovan McNabb is also named in the suit, accused of sending explicit text messages.

This story is still developing... She was terminated from her role with the network in October 2016, ultimately resulting in the wrongful termination suit that brought these allegations to light.

The United States remains Egypt's main global backer, providing an estimated $1.3 billion in military and economic aid each year. Late last month, Russian Federation said it approved a draft agreement with Egypt to allow its warplanes to use Egyptian bases.

While men across politics, media, entertainment and the technology industry have been fired over allegations of sexual harassment, there have been few recent high-profile cases in the sports world.

Weinberger is now president of sports commentator Bill Simmons's media group.

"I know from experience that you're only as good as the people around you, and Eric is one of the very best", he said at the time. She filed an amended complaint on Monday that more fully laid out the allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the three analysts, all former N.F.L. players.

NBC News reached out to Faulk, Taylor, Evans, McNabb, Weinberger and Davis for their responses to the allegations, but had not received any replies. In addition, she complained about working conditions as well as a lack of reimbursement for expenses and failure to compensate. The lawsuit originated in California Superior Court.

The original suit alleges that Cantor was sacked in October 2016 after having falsely been accused of stealing clothes from a network employee.
