Who is Deshaun Watson's girlfriend Jilly Anais? Love story with NBA star's daughter and beauty pageant winner
Jilly and Deshaun have been dating for almost two years now.
The Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson ended his Tuesday night addressing the sexual assault lawsuit he is reportedly facing. Interestingly, the allegations have come hot on the heels of trade talks, which will surely intensify around the 2021 NFL Draft. "I have never treated any woman with anything other than utmost respect," the NFL star highlighted in his statement while confirming that the plaintiff's lawyer, Tony Buzbee, demanded a "six-figure settlement" which he "quickly rejected." "Unlike him, this isn't about money for me – it's about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that," Deshaun concluded.
While this lawsuit may prove to be damaging to his career, it will not be far-fetched to assume that it will impact his personal life as well. Ever since he signed the $160 million contract extension with said team, Deshaun and his girlfriend Jilly Anais have been in a celebratory mood. Will it be cut short by the sexual assault allegations leveled against him by an unidentified masseuse? Even though it's been just two years since they have been dating, the chemistry between them is unmistakable. They are each other's cheerleaders on social media and let's hope nothing changes that.

What is her net worth?
