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


Cordon, an ex-partner of McCoy’s who resided in his Atlanta home, was reportedly
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.

Child and
animal abuse

‘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’.

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.”
