Former NFL star Brian Banks is in the headlines once more for all the wrong reasons. This time, the 33-year-old linebacker who once played for the Atlanta Falcons in 2013 is being accused of sexual assault.

Banks is being sued by a woman who alleges that she was hired to clean up the former football player's apartment back in February 2018, TMZ reported. She claims that while she went to work, Banks allegedly pulled out his private part and started 'playing' with it.

Aside from that, the woman added that Banks had shown her pornographic material on his computer. The 33-year-old reportedly asked her to join him and eventually started forcing himself on her when she refused.

The alleged victim also claimed that Banks had touched her private parts and forced her to touch his. She eventually left but claims that she was traumatized by the whole ordeal. She alleges that she can no longer clean homes for fear that she might eventually get assaulted or raped.

Banks is being sued for $10 million by the woman for assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The latest, however, from the camp of Banks is that the allegations are not true and that they have evidence to prove that all of these are false.

Banks is no stranger to sexual assault allegations. Back in 2002, the former Polytechnic high school star was falsely accused of raping his classmate - Wanetta Gibson. He was wrongfully imprisoned for roughly six years and was under strict custody parole for five years, ESPN reported. The conviction was overturned on May 24, 2012, after Gibson admitted that she had fabricated the whole ordeal, the Bleacher Report reported.

After the admission, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered Gibson to pay $2.6 million judgment in connection with the case, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported. The alleged victim back in 2002 sued the Long Beach Unified School District and won a $1.5 million settlement.
