Watch: Peyton Manning addresses sexual misconduct allegations
“I did not do what has been alleged and I am not interested in re-litigating something that happened when I was 19,” Manning said.
After the Super Bowl, allegations of the incident, which took place when Manning was 19, re-emerged. In a lawsuit, Manning was alleged to have “forcefully maneuvered” his naked genitals directly onto the face of a female athletic trainer. He denied the claims of assault, saying he had “mooned” a teammate during the incident and never made contact with the trainer.
Peyton’s father, Archie Manning, included discussion of the controversy in his book Manning: A Father, His Sons, and a Football Legacy, which raised a defamation lawsuit.
