Last week it was revealed that a former WWE employee had filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon, WWE and John Laurinaitis due to allegations of sex trafficking and abuse.

After the lawsuit was revealed Vince McMahon resigned from his position as Executive Chairman of TKO and he also resigned from the TKO Board of Directors.

John Laurinaitis’ lawyer Edward Brennan has now issued a statement to VICE claiming that Laurinaitis is a victim in the case and the statement reads as follows:

“Mr. Laurinaitis denies the allegations in the misguided complaint and will be vigorously defending these charges in Court, not the media. Like the Plaintiff, Mr. Laurinaitis is a victim in this case, not a predator. The truth will come out.”

When asked to clarify that Laurinaitis was a victim Brennan added, “Read the allegations. Read the Federal Statute. Power, control, employment supervisory capacity, dictatorial sexual demands with repercussions if not met. Count how many times in the complaint Vince exerts control over both of them.”

Stay tuned for more updates on the lawsuit as they become available.
