TEXT MESSAGES: $100K hush money demand made by man claiming to represent Guice accuser
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Text messages obtained by the 9NEWS Investigators through a public records request show LSU senior associate athletic director Miriam Segar confronted a man named Cleave Williams who demanded hush money over sexual, verbal harassment allegations against star Tiger football player Derrius Guice.
Williams, a coach from New Orleans, told the LSU officials that he was helping out Scott and her family in the matter.
The woman who raised those allegations, Gloria Scott, 74, claims when she encountered Guice at the Louisiana Superdome in 2017, he made crude sexual comments to her and grabbed his private parts.
On Monday, April 5, Scott told Baton Rouge media reporters that Williams never had permission to demand money on her behalf.
