New information has come out about New York Giants kicker Josh Brown.
His ex-wife Molly turned over his journal entries to the King County (Wash.) sheriff’s office. They released the entries today in which Brown admitted to being abusive to his wife and other women for decades. He said his behavior came from being molested as a child.
“I have been a liar for most of my life,” Brown wrote, via SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano. “I made selfish decisions to use and abuse women starting at the age of 7 to fill this void. I objectified women and never really worried about the pain and hurt I caused them. My ability to connect emotionally to other people was zero. My empathy levels were zero.
“Because I never handled these underlying issues I became an abuser and hurt Molly physically, emotionally and verbally. I viewed myself as God basically and she was my slave.”
One of the documents is a signed contract by both Molly and Josh titled “A Contract for Change.” In this he describes how he physically abused his wife.
Brown was arrested in May 2015 on charges of fourth-degree domestic violence assault. The state of Washington declined to press charges. He was suspended for one game by the NFL this season, and no one knew why until the New York Daily News’ Seth Walder got the police reports.
Originally, head coach Ben McAdoo and co-owner John Mara supported Brown “as a man and a father.”
According to Vacchiano the Giants have declined comment.
