Janel Grant Claims Vince McMahon Coerced Her Into Writing 2,200 Word Love Letter

Vince McMahon WWE

A love letter sent to Vince McMahon by Janel Grant has gone public.

The New York Post has obtained a lengthy love letter written by Janel Grant which was sent to Vince McMahon on Christmas Eve 2021. However, Grant’s attorney, Ann Callis, claims McMahon coerced Grant into writing the letter.

“Frankly it’s pretty disgusting that Vince’s weeks-late attempt to defend his horrendous behavior — behavior he claims to this day never happened — is to try to showcase letters that Vince himself coerced her to write…

While Janel isn’t a stranger to his intimidation tactics, this is a new low even for him.”

In the lengthy email, Grant said she and McMahon are “in love with a capital L,” and McMahon was “my best friend, my love and my everything.”

A spokesperson for Grant claims she wrote so many letters at McMahon’s request that she padded them out with references to pop culture, and copied other media. For example, certain descriptions and turns of phrase were said to be taken directly from a GQ interview with Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly.

In the GQ piece, for example, author Molly Lambert said of the celebs’ relationship: “The carnal component is clearly off the charts, but they can also be sweet and funny” — language that was lifted nearly word-for-word in Grant’s letter.

“Fox and MGK are in Love, with a capital L,” the story also states — yet another phrase lifted by Grant.

The report from the Post also documents an alleged text exchange between Grant and McMahon where they can be seen discussing the letter in the days before it was written.

In response, McMahon’s attorney Jessica Taub Rosenberg, described the claims by Grant and her team as “revisionist history.”

No one coerced Ms. Grant to write that letter. She wrote it of her own accord. The fact that the letter shows it was the 24th draft speaks volumes.

Nowhere in her voluminous complaint, that is replete with fabrications, does she mention being coerced into such behavior. The language of the letter is consistent with other communications she made to Mr. McMahon over the course of their consensual relationship.

In a statement to the post, McMahon’s attorney described Grant’s allegations as “false, defamatory and entirely without merit.”

John Laurinaitis is also named in the lawsuit against WWE and McMahon but his attorney, Edward Brennan, declined to comment on the letter. Brennan only reiterated that Laurinaitis denies all the allegations made against him.

Representatives for WWE didn’t respond when asked for comment.

When Did Janel Grant File The Lawsuit Against Vince McMahon?

On January 25th former WWE employee Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon, WWE, and John Laurinaitis. The suit includes allegations of sex trafficking and claims by Grant that she was sexually assaulted by both McMahon and Laurinaitis.

After the sickening allegations went public McMahon was forced to resign from the TKO Board of Directors.
