Who is Kayla? Dave Portnoy accused of BREAKING woman's rib during violent sex
A woman has accused Dave Portnoy of extremely violent sex and nonconsensual filming
The founder of Barstool Sports Dave Portnoy is suing his former partner and Business Insider for defamation over the tell-all article about his alleged sex life. In the article, his former partner, who is using the pseudonym Kayla, claimed that Dave Portnoy had such violent sex with her that left her bleeding and with a broken rib.
Kayla told Business Insider about her sexual experiences with Portnoy which were more aggressive than she was led to believe. She revealed how Portnoy would choke her to the extent that she could not breathe, left red marks on her body from severe spanking and clasped her in a way that felt like her body “was compressing in on itself”. She also said Portnoy would film her without her knowledge, an accusation that two other women have previously made.
In one particular encounter, Kayla alleges that she suffered rug burns and bled on his carpet. She further explains how it was not the kind of sex she consented to. “I always think back to it, like, 'Yes, it was technically consensual sex, but that was not the sex I consented to'.”
Portnoy straight-up denies the allegations, claiming that the entire relationship with Kayla was consensual. “She was 100% aware I was filming her at all times. This girl slid into my DMs to have sex with me. She has sex with me multiple times. She told me she enjoyed it. She sent me videos. She stayed in touch for three years after the fact. She never once complained,” Portnoy shares his side of the story.
The Barstool boss has countered Kayla’s allegations and shared text correspondences between the pair that suggested she enjoyed rough sex and continued to contact Portnoy after their sexual encounters. "Now five years later suddenly she is very upset? Give me a break. I have all the facts and evidence that contradicts direct quotes from her”. Portnoy also talked about Kayla's alleged rib injury, claiming the pair joked about it. He also shared with Daily Mail a copy of a series of sexual text exchanges between the two that appear to show Kayla commending him for holding her 'title for most aggressive sex'.
“Kayla liked rough sex as much as I did. At no point did she ever complain or ask me to stop or act frightened or in distress,” he wrote in his blog. “At no point ever during our relationship did Kayla indicate she was uncomfortable with anything we ever did. NEVER.” His attorneys reportedly sent Kayla a letter demanding her to “retract the false allegations” she made against Portnoy and arguing that failure to do so will expose her to substantial liability for defamation.
But Kayla is determined to move forward with sharing her story in an effort to “stand up for these girls” who were allegedly victimized by Portnoy. “I know what happened to me, and I know what I experienced,” she told Business Insider. “I know what I went through, and I remember everything in those encounters so vividly, and I'm just very determined to speak up and share my story and hopefully encourage other women to feel confident to speak up,” she added.
