Former Dodgers baseball pitcher Trevor Bauer posted a video to social media defending himself from sexual assault accusations after he and his accuser agreed to drop their lawsuits against each other.
Bauer had filed a defamation lawsuit against Lindsey Hill, and she filed a lawsuit against him, alleging that he had sexually assaulted her at his home in Pasadena, California. Both lawsuits were dropped Monday.
On Monday, he posted a video with some of the text messages that were obtained during the lawsuit to support his denial that he had assaulted her.
Here are some of the texts he posted to the video reportedly attributed to his accuser:
- "Next victim. Star pitcher for the dodgers."
- "Net worth is 51 mil"
- "Im going to his house wednesday. I already have my hooks in. You know how I roll."
- "need daddy to choke me out"
- "Being an absolute WHORE to get in on his 51 million."
He also posted a video apparently taken by Hill of herself laying next to him where she doesn't seem to be traumatized in any way. He says that she claimed she was desperate to get away from him at that time and that she had been physically hurt by their interactions.
"Her legal team has approached me multiple times about coming to a financial settlement, but, as I have done since day one, I refused to pay her even a single cent," said Bauer.
“Now over the last two years, I’ve been forced to defend my integrity and my reputation in a very public setting, but hopefully this is the last time I have to do so, as I’d prefer to just remain focused on doing my job, winning baseball games and entertaining fans around the world,” he added.
Hill's attorney Bryan Freedman told TMZ in a statement that Bauer did not receive any money from the settled lawsuits.
"In April 2022, Trevor Bauer sued Lindsey Hill for defamation. In what turned out to be an outstanding resolution for Lindsey, neither Lindsey nor anyone on her behalf paid anything to Bauer. Not a single dollar," Freedman said.
"Even better, Lindsey received $300,000 from her insurance company," he added. "Based on that payment, Lindsey agreed to settle the lawsuit. Now that the lawsuit is over, Lindsey looks forward to helping others."
Freedman did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheBlaze about the text messages Bauer published in his video.
Bauer's attorneys also released a statement about the development.
"Mr. Bauer did not make – and never has made – any payments to Ms. Hill, including to resolve their litigation," they said in part. "With this matter now at rest, Mr. Bauer can focus completely on baseball."
Bauer had been the highest-paid player in Major League Baseball and a National League Cy Young Award winner. He now plays for a team in Japan but is eligible to play in the MLB once again. He was never charged with a crime but was initially suspended from the MLB for 324 games. That suspension was later decreased to 194 games.
