DAVIE, FLORIDA: Xavien Howard has responded to a woman who is suing him for giving her an "incurable STD," branding her "a bitter ex-lover" and asserting that her STD case against him is "the essence of a shakedown," according to TMZ. The Miami Dolphins player submitted the documents on October 28, one day after the plaintiff, who used the name Jane Doe in her lawsuit, claimed he accidentally gave her genital herpes.

According to the records, Howard has sought that the woman's lawsuit be dismissed. He also said the woman has hounded him, threatened to harm him, and tried to extort money from him. According to the lawsuit, the three-time Pro Bowler who signed a five-year, $90 million contract extension with the Dolphins this year, invited Jane Doe out on a date during their first encounter at a Quest Diagnostics facility early in 2018.

When he first reassured her that he was STD-free, he even presented his negative test results. When Howard learned he had genital herpes in 2019, he chose not to tell the woman, she claims. Instead, he persisted in his assertion that he had passed several tests and continued to have sexual relations with her.

"Maaaaan I been told you I was sorry for giving it to you," she says Howard told her. "But what can I do now? The damage is done. You keep bringing it up as if it gon change sumthin. Like yo a** can't move on."

In the docs, Howard claims he has text message proof that showed the woman is "nothing more than a scorned ex-lover who has elected to prey on [Howard's] public status for the purpose of obtaining a financial windfall without right or claim."

The cornerback went so far as to share messages that, in his account, show the woman cursing at him before threatening to "come to your job tomorrow and create a major commotion." She also asserts that she should be permitted to continue the case under the alias "Jane Doe" and that doing otherwise would only compound the "embarrassment, humiliation, and psychological trauma" she has already experienced as a result of the situation.

Xavien Howard is currently engaged to Keeli Long for several years now. She is also the mother of all three of Howard's children; Ava, born in May 2015; Skylar born in November 2017; and son Xavien Jr born on March 12, 2019. There was a case of physical abuse between the couple in 2020 where the police was involved. After an argument regarding a purse grew physical, Howard was arrested because he grabbed Keeli and "pushed her back against the mirrored glass wall" in the hallway in their home in Davie. Keeli sustained injuries on her arms and had an abrasion on her right elbow as per TMZ.
