Warren Sapp on sexual harassment allegations : ' You are not going to put that on me '.

“I didn’t pee in front of my wife and I was married to her for nine years,” Sapp said. “It’s just not something you (do). What is that about? It’s not cute. It’s not sexual. It’s not something you want to see. Last time I checked, if you ate some asparagus, it might stink."

He also said the sex toys he brought in were after a “general conversation” after a couple makeup artists saw the devices in a magazine and it wasn’t “about sex.”

“We were sitting there around Christmas time and everybody brought a Christmas gift, a little holiday joy for everybody,” Sapp said. “So, my man had made a little novelty thing that looked like mascara, eyeliner and different things. Little toys for ladies that move around a little bit. I showed them pictures and (the makeup artists) said bring me some, so I brought them some for the makeup ladies.”

Sapp didn’t say whether Cantor requested the gift.

Sapp said it was possible he showed Cantor a picture of a woman he was dating at the time, although Sapp said that woman would have had a bikini on and wasn’t fully naked.

“Where is the harassment at?” Sapp said. “I’m the notorious one. I’m always the bad guy. That’s why I’m in here today. Ain’t no #metoo, nothing. No sexual harassment. You are not going to put that on me.”

Sapp said that there was "nothing that was memorable" about his talk with Faulk since Monday's revelations, although he added "my CTE acts up sometimes."
