Juan Dixon, the ex-husband of RHOP’s Robyn Dixon, has been named in a Coppin State University basketball lawsuit — and the details are messy, to say the least.
According to The Baltimore Brew, a former player of Coppin State basketball has filed a lawsuit against the university alleging he was sexually assaulted and then blackmailed by the team’s assistant coach.
Juan Dixon, who was the head coach at the time, has also been named in the lawsuit for failing to do anything about the assistant coach’s inappropriate behaviour once being informed.
“The legal complaint says ‘by information and belief’ Lucian Brownlee, a former guard who served as Director of Player Development and Director of Basketball Operations, harassed, tormented and sexually assaulted the player, Ibn Williams, before publishing intimate material he had obtained from the student,'” reads the report from The Baltimore Brew.
Williams was allegedly being blackmailed by a supposed catfisher, with his lawyer now believing Brownlee was the one behind the accounts in question. Once Dixon was informed of the allegations, he reportedly made Williams play the next day and failed to do anything about the situation.
According to lawyer Daniel “Donny” Epstein, Dixon should have never promoted Brownlee considering he was aware of previous inappropriate behaviour. “The coach should have known better than to put this person in a position of seniority,” he told The Brew.
The outlet was not able to reach Brownlee for comment, and Dixon did not respond to a phone message and email requesting comment about the allegations. The school’s athletic director at the time, Derek Carter, also did not respond. The University, through a spokesperson, confirmed that they “do not comment on pending litigation.”
Juan Dixon has appeared on The Real Housewives of Potomac alongside his ex-wife Robyn since the show’s debut in 2016, with new episodes airing Sundays on Bravo.
