It was reported yesterday that Santonio Holmes has been sued for allegedly throwing a glass at a woman and cutting her near the eye. According to the lawsuit, the incident took place at an Orlando nightclub and Holmes tried to pay his victim in exchange for not pressing charges.
While details were initially scant, more information has begun to trickle out. Anshonae Mills is the woman who is suing the Super Bowl MVP, and as SportsByBrooks and Busted Coverage have found, she has an online presence.
A profile at BlackPlanet.com that appears to be several years old includes pictures of Mills. According to her profile, she has a "contagious personality," is an "adrenaline junky" and is "not usually a b*tch, but i can be." What gets on her nerves? "Lame people." At the time she wrote her profile description (which, again, appears to be back in 2007), the woman who is now apparently suing Holmes for $15,000 said, "I love money."
The lawsuit against Holmes comes at a particularly poor time for the Steelers. The team's quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, was recently accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Georgia, the second such accusation he has faced. While the situation continues to develop, both NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin are concerned by the pattern.
