Christina Scavo, a massage therapist, is suing the New York Jets and Brett Favre claiming sexual harassment. Scavo filed a complaint alleging she was wrongfully sacked from her job as a Jets massage therapist after she blocked a crude pass from Favre during his brief stint as the team’s QB in 2008. Scavo claims Favre sent an illicit text message to an unidentified masseuse, hoping to convince the two of them to have a threesome. Later, Scavo’s husband called him and, according to the complaint, Favre flipped. The Jets maintain Scavo was let go when the Jets moved to a different training facility. Full article.
