Included in the story is an allegation from an unnamed artist who claims that the receiver came up behind her while she was in a “kneeling position while painting and turned to find Brown behind her, naked, holding a small hand towel over his genitals.”

Brown’s attorney, Darren Heitner, said via Twitter that the receiver “denies he ever engaged in such activities. There will be no further comment at this time.”

Brown has yet to speak with the media since signing with the Patriots and ducked out of the New England locker room following the game on Sunday before the media arrived. In related news, Britney Taylor, Brown’s former trainer who filed a civial lawsuit against him last week alleging sexual assault on three separate occasions, was reportedly to meet with NFL investigators on Monday.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick refused to take questions regarding the NFL investigation into Brown's off-field issues during a Monday afternoon conference call with the local media.
