Former Dodgers baseball pitcher Trevor Bauer posted a video on social media defending himself against sexual assault allegations after he and his accuser agreed to drop their lawsuits against each other.
Bauer had filed a defamation lawsuit against Lindsey Hill, and she filed a lawsuit legal action against him on the grounds that he had sexually abused her at his home in Pasadena, California. Both lawsuits were dropped on Monday.
On Monday, he released a video of some text messages obtained during the trial to support his denial that he assaulted her.
Here are some of the texts he posted on the video allegedly attributed to his accuser:
- “Next victim. Star pitcher for the Dodgers.”
- “Net worth is 51 million”
- “I’m going to his house on Wednesday. I already have my hooks in. You know how I roll.”
- “I need daddy to smother me.”
- “Being an absolute whore to get into his 51 million.”
He also posted a video, apparently taken by Hill, showing her lying next to him and not appearing to be traumatized in any way. He says she claimed she desperately wanted to get away from him at the time and that their interactions left her physically injured.
“Her legal team has approached me several times about a financial settlement, but as I have done since day one, I have refused to pay her a single cent,” Bauer said.
“For the last two years I have been forced to defend my integrity and reputation in a very public environment, but hopefully this is the last time I have to do that because I would rather just focus on doing my job is to win baseball games and entertain fans around the world,” he added.
Hill’s attorney, Bryan Freedman said TMZ in a statement that Bauer received no money from the settled lawsuits.
“In April 2022, Trevor Bauer sued Lindsey Hill for defamation. In a decision that was outstanding for Lindsey, neither Lindsey nor anyone on her behalf paid anything to Bauer. Not a single dollar,” Freedman said.
“Even better, Lindsey received $300,000 from her insurance company,” he added. “Based on this payment, Lindsey agreed to settle the lawsuit. Now that the lawsuit is over, Lindsey looks forward to helping others.”
Freedman did not immediately respond to a request from TheBlaze for comment about the text messages Bauer posted in his video.
Bauer’s lawyers also released a statement on the development.
“Mr. Bauer has not made – and has never made – any payments to Ms. Hill, including to resolve her litigation,” they said in part. “Now that this matter is closed, Mr. Bauer can concentrate fully on baseball.”
Bauer was Major League Baseball’s highest-paid player and a National League Cy Young Award winner. He now plays for a team in Japan but is eligible to play in the MLB again. He was never charged with a crime, but was initially suspended for 324 games by the MLB. This suspension was later reduced to 194 games.
