Delicia Cordon, the ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the NFL star after she was badly beaten in a home invasion robbery at his Georgia mansion back in July.
She’s named LeSean and his former University of Pittsburgh teammate Tamarcus Porter as defendants.
The lawsuit alleges McCoy should be held financially liable for the injuries Cordon sustained in the vicious attack because he previously changed the security codes to the home they shared and left her “defenseless” when he refused to share the new codes amid an eviction dispute.
The suit doesn’t specifically claim McCoy ordered the home invasion, but it states the assailant “indicated that he knew McCoy,” the lawsuit first reported by WKBW-TV in Buffalo said.
It also states “McCoy had actual and constructive knowledge of criminal activity existing on the property on July 10, 2018” because he allegedly had access to live video feeds from his security cameras on the property.
Cordon’s lawsuit seeks damages including $133,000 in stolen jewelry and $13,000 in furniture allegedly taken by McCoy’s family and friends when they tried to evict her on June 1 while she was out of state attending her sister’s graduation.
As the Daily News previously reported, Cordon told a 911 dispatcher after the July 10 attack that she suspected McCoy “set her up.”
“I have cameras all outside my house, and my boyfriend who I feel like did this — who set me up — is going to see us on the cameras outside,” Cordon said in the recorded 911 call obtained by The News.
“We’re breaking up, and he wants all his jewelry back,” she told the dispatcher shortly after the attack. “I don’t want to step outside. He’s got cameras outside, and he could see me.”
She said an armed intruder beat her in the face with a gun and stole diamond jewelry off her wrist.
“My face is demolished right now,” she said in the emotional call.
In a separate police report released the same day as the 911 recording, cops in Milton, Georgia, said they responded to a July 2017 domestic dispute call at McCoy’s suburban Atlanta mansion and spoke to McCoy about his prior attempts to evict Cordon, his claims she refused to return loaned jewelry and his worries she might accuse him of something.
The cops found a “large mound” of clothing piled in the driveway and heard from McCoy that Cordon had followed him to Las Vegas and accused him of cheating, the report from last year said.
“He stated that he was trying to be very careful about being around her given the climate of domestic abuse in his profession,” the report said.
He told police jewelers often loaned the couple high-end jewelry and that Cordon received some of the pieces.
“He stated that he asked her multiple times for them but that she has not yet returned them,” the report from the Milton Police Department said.
In a separate police report summarizing Cordon’s 911 call, the suspect in the alleged home invasion was described as wearing a mask and all-black clothing.
The attack sent Cordon, 34, to a local hospital. Police confirmed an investigation into the “home invasion” at McCoy’s mansion but have not announced any arrests in the case.
A friend posted a graphic photo of Cordon’s injuries on Instagram within hours and directly accused McCoy of ordering the violent assault.
McCoy, meanwhile, vehemently denied any involvement in a statement on social media.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” McCoy said. “Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
Cordon’s lawyers said in a statement that the armed intruder was able to enter the house without any signs of forced entry.
“He hit Ms. Cordon in the face with a firearm multiple times while demanding specific items of jewelry and cash from her. Ms. Cordon sustained multiple injuries to her head, face and arms during this horrendous attack,” the statement from the firm of Tanya Mitchell Graham said.
The lawyers said the assailant requested specific pieces of jewelry that McCoy had given Cordon and requested back.
The statement claimed McCoy even issued a prior, ominous warning about the pricey pieces.
“He would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive,” the law firm said.
The Bills said last month that the team had “spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League” as they continued to gather information.
Cordon’s law firm said McCoy was behind an effort to evict Cordon from his house even though she claims the couple discussed marriage as recently as May.
On June 6, an eviction proceeding was filed against Cordon by Porter, legal paperwork obtained by The News confirmed.
A June 22 response from Cordon said she and her children had lived in the house since October 2016.
“On or about Memorial Day, May 28, 2018, plaintiff was discussing marriage with defendant Cordon. In fact, on May 29, 2018, Plaintiff gave defendant Cordon a substantial gift,” the filing states.
This whole situation is bad. We believe Delicia — because most random home invasions don’t involve such severe beatings. That seemed personal.
