A lawyer for John Laurinaitis has remained adamant that “the truth will come out” regarding the latest Vince McMahon scandal.

On January 25th a lawsuit was brought against Vince McMahon alleging sex trafficking and sexual assault. In the lawsuit, former WWE employee Janel Grant alleged that both McMahon and John Laurinaitis sexually assaulted her, and in another incident, McMahon instructed Grant to create explicit material for the veteran known as “Johnny Ace.”

There were several other allegations of a similar nature made in the suit.

Edward Brennan, a lawyer for Laurinaitis, has now issued a statement to VICE News claiming that his client is in fact a victim.

Brennan stated:

“Mr. Laurinaitis denies the allegations in the misguided complaint and will be vigorously defending these charges in Court, not the media. Like the Plaintiff, Mr. Laurinaitis is a victim in this case, not a predator. The truth will come out.”

Lawyer Claims John Laurinaitis Is A Victim

When asked to clarify whether he was stating that McMahon was a predator and Laurinaitis was a victim like Grant, Brennan added:

“Read the allegations. Read the Federal Statute. Power, control, employment supervisory capacity, dictatorial sexual demands with repercussions if not met. Count how many times in the complaint Vince exerts control over both of them.”

Vince McMahon has denied any wrongdoing.
