LeSean McCoy - the NFL running back who was accused this week of abusing a woman, child, and dog - has taken to Instagram to deny the allegations laid against him.
Delicia Cordon, an ex-partner of McCoy's who resided in his Atlanta home, was reportedly attacked by an as yet unknown individual on the property in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Later, a photo was posted to Instagram, showing an apparently battered woman who user 'miamor_i_adore' claimed was Cordon, captioned with the slew of aforementioned allegations against him.
The Instagram user has since made a post claiming that the photo was removed at the request of Cordon's lawyer, and that they have been personally in contact with McCoy about his alleged wrong doings.
'Miamor_i_adore' also cited times McCoy 'viciously beat' his son 'for small things like peeing in the bed' – and said that McCoy beat his dog Henny 'into kidney failure'.
The writer added: "The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!"
McCoy's statement on the matter, shared to Instagram, read: "For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false.
"Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."
