LeSean McCoy denies domestic violence accusation against him as police investigate 'targeted' home invasion

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy denied claims of domestic violence against him on Tuesday after an Instagram post made serious allegations against him, including beating up a woman.

The Instagram post, from @miamor_i_adore (the post has since been deleted), had a picture of a woman with a bruised and bloody face. The woman who posted the photo claimed to be a friend of McCoy’s ex-girlfriend.

“I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!!” the caption of the post said. She later posted a message, indicating Cordon’s lawyer “forced” her to remove the post.

McCoy used Instagram to put out his denial. He said he hasn’t seen the women involved in the accusations “in months.”


In a story published Tuesday afternoon, TMZ said EMTs were at a home on the woman’s street Monday morning, and there are only three houses on her block. Officials declined to reveal any details to TMZ.

McCoy is one of the NFL’s biggest stars, a six-time Pro Bowler who became a star with the Philadelphia Eagles and has spent the last three seasons with the Bills after a trade.

“We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information,” the Bills said in a statement. 

Instagram post accuses McCoy of abuse

The Instagram post accused McCoy of many things other than injuring the woman in the photo. It says he beat his dog “into kidney failure,” beat his son “for small things like peeing in the bed” and also mentions “all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using.” 

ESPN’s Dianna Russini said the team was looking into the post. The Bills later issued a statement saying, “We have spoken to LeSean McCoy and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information.”

Meanwhile, Matthew Bove of WKBW in Buffalo said police in Milton, Georgia, told him they were investigating domestic violence allegations against McCoy.


Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson posted a report from Milton Police that said the preliminary investigation indicated the residence was not a random incident.


Robinson also said the Bills and NFL have been in contact with the police department there.


TMZ claims McCoy and ex-girlfriend had ‘contentious relationship’

On Tuesday afternoon, TMZ published a story that cited court documents and said McCoy and his ex-girlfriend had a contentious relationship. TMZ said in court documents, McCoy referred to the woman as his “ex-girlfriend.”

TMZ said McCoy sought a judge’s order last month to force her out of a home he owns in Alpharetta, Ga. TMZ, citing court documents, said McCoy discussed marriage with her on May 28 and gave her a “substantial gift.” She claimed that days later, McCoy’s friends and family members removed furniture and furnishings from her home without her knowledge. She called police when she saw it happening on a security camera feed, TMZ said, and police stopped the people from taking the items away. The woman also claimed, in court documents cited by TMZ, that McCoy had the electricity to her home cut off. 

TMZ published another story later Tuesday afternoon that said police and medical personnel were sent to McCoy’s house in Georgia at 3:23 a.m. on Monday morning for a “home invasion.” According to TMZ the dispatcher said, “It’s gonna be in reference to a female who was assaulted, hit in the head and locked in the bathroom.”
