Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, can’t seem to shake accusations of sexual misconduct. Three more women have now come forward to accuse him of abusing them in one way or another, reports Business Insider.
Apparently, at least according to these women, Dave Portnoy is at the very least a sexual weirdo, and at the worst a predator. The new allegations are that he filmed the women while engaging in sexual intercourse with them without their permission. One of the women even says that Portnoy broke one of her ribs during rough sex and that this was caught on camera.
Last November, the 44-year-old businessman was accused by a number of women of taking them on abusive and humiliating trysts. One accuser told Business Insider of Dave Portnoy’s behavior, “It was so rough I felt like I was being raped. He videotaped me and spit in my mouth and choked me so hard I couldn’t breathe.”

“It was so painful,” she added. “I kept trying to get away and he was like, ‘Stop running away from me,’” and then “just went harder.”
Now, Dave Portnoy says that he is definitely suing Business Insider for its report. He released a somewhat bizarre ranting post on Barstool Sports saying, “One of the main themes in the Business Insider article is that I video girls without their consent. This is absolutely not true. I have never done that once in my life and I never will. I’m so scarred I’ll probably never video again anyway. But it doesn’t even make sense the way they claim it happens.”
“Like these girls say I video them without consent and I’m too rough for them and then they come back over a week later and we have sex again and I video them without consent again and then they come back over a week later and I video them again without consent,” added Dave Portnoy. “All the while we are actively texting and dm’ing each other without them saying a word to me that they are upset. Like what are we even talking about here? Newsflash you can have rough, kinky, wild sex and still respect women. Also newsflash plenty of women love having that type of sex. There was a reason 50 Shades of Grey was a box office smash and it wasn’t because guys were buying tickets.”

And that is not all.
Dave Portnoy has also been tweeting away his anger in posts that say things like “And for the morons who ask why I defend myself so vigorously it’s because BusinessInsider contacts our advertisers. They try to tank $penn stock. Silence is a victory for them. They are liars and belong in jail. I’m not defending me. I’m defending my company which they hate.” And, “Imagine writing the shit these people write about me and never be willing to defend it? Shame.
So let’s wait and see now if any more accusations come out. If they do, then Dave Portnoy will really be in trouble.
