LeSean McCoy has been trying to evict his former girlfriend from his home in Georgia, court documents revealed, as the Bills running back was accused of domestic assault.
On Tuesday, the same day a since-deleted Instagram post from her friend accused McCoy of beating his ex, Delicia Cordon, the former couple was scheduled to appear in court, according to TMZ.
In a statement released later in the night, Cordon’s lawyers said she was physically assaulted by a male assailant “who entered the home with no signs of forced entry.” They claimed the man demanded specific items of jewelry that McCoy had previously gifted her and also requested back more than once. They also alleged that McCoy “would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.”
During the attack, Cordon’s wrists were bruised and her face was hit multiple times with a firearm, according to her lawyers. The other woman injured was her cousin.
McCoy has denied all of the allegations, calling them “baseless and offensive” in a statement while adding that he has not “had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
McCoy had friends and family remove Cordon’s furnishings from the home in June and had the power turned off, per court papers reported by the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.
The couple allegedly had been in a relationship for two years, though McCoy said in court papers last July that they were no longer together. Cordon was living in the home with her two children, and McCoy said he had allowed her to live “rent-free while at premises for five months,” court papers showed. But her attorney claimed the eviction notice could not be enforced because it was wrongly given to Cordon’s 16-year-old son.
McCoy’s attorney told the Democrat & Chronicle that McCoy has been in Miami recently, not at the Georgia home. According to his attorney, Jacoby Hudson, McCoy claimed that Cordon had surveillance cameras removed from the home.
Further court documents, obtained by TMZ, claim the couple had discussed marriage in May, and McCoy allegedly gave her a “substantial gift.” A few days later, with both of them out of town for separate commitments, McCoy allegedly had her belongings removed from the home. Cordon saw it on the surveillance cameras and called police to stop it, TMZ reported.
The saga came to light Tuesday after Cordon’s friend posted an Instagram photo of Cordon with a cut, bruised and bloodied face, accusing McCoy of beating her. The woman, who later deleted the post, also accused McCoy of beating his dog, beating his son and taking steroids
