Trevor Bauer is now suing the San Diego woman who accused him of sexual assault … with the MLB star claiming she came up with accusations against him for ruining his baseball career and withdrawing money from him.
The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sport, was filed in California on Monday. The documents show that Bauer is suing both Lindsey Hill and one of her lawyers, Fred Thiagarajahover what he claims are fabricated allegations of sexual assault.
Bauer, as he has done repeatedly since Hill originally accused him in 2021 completely denied having had sex without the consent of the woman.
Bauer also once again denied having strangled Hill without her consent. He also denied that he had ever beaten or scratched her.
Bauer acknowledged that the two had sex on two occasions – one in April 2021 and one in May 2021 – but he repeatedly claimed in the case that the actions during those meetings were consensus.
In his case, Bauer claims that despite giving his consent to “rough sex”, Hill has erroneously filed a police report against him, accusing him of sexual assault in order to lower his baseball career and try to reach a financial settlement with him. Bauer also claims in the case that Thiagarajah helped her maintain the false allegations.
He also says the two photographs of Hill’s alleged injuries were altered and filtered to make them look worse than they were.
In the trial, Bauer said he brought the case to “expose and seek redress for the false and malicious statements and related conduct of Ms. Hill and Mr. Thiagarajah.”
He is seeking compensation.
As we reported, several months after Hill made his accusations against Bauer … prosecutors refused to charge The LA Dodgers pitcher, says in a statement, “the people are incapable of proving the relevant charges beyond any reasonable doubt.”
Bauer has not played for the Dodgers yet since Hill’s initial accusations … that’s him still on administrative leave from the team as MLB conducts its own investigation of the allegations.
