According to reports, a woman who made accusations of sexual abuse against Vince McMahon recently wrote a letter expressing affection towards the former WWE CEO.

However, she now asserts that she was manipulated into doing so.

Vince McMahon Accuser Wrote a Love Letter to Him

On January 25, Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, made serious allegations against Vince McMahon, accusing him of sex trafficking and multiple counts of sexual misconduct.

Just 24 hours later, the 78-year-old made the decision to step down from his position as executive chairman of WWE's parent company, TKO Group Holdings.

An email purportedly sent to Vince McMahon by Grant on December 24, 2021, has been published by The New York Post.

In the email, Grant expresses her affection for the promoter, who is currently being investigated, referring to him as her "best friend, love, and everything."

The affectionate letter presents a stark contrast to the serious accusations made in her high-profile lawsuit filed in a federal court in Connecticut.

According to the lawsuit, McMahon is accused of engaging in inappropriate behavior during a threesome in May 2020, which is said to have occurred 18 months before the writing of the purported love letter.

Janel Grant's Lawyer Claims Client Was Forced to Write the Letter

Grant's lawyer,  Ann Callis said McMahon has been accused of instructing Grant to compose the email.

The attorney representing Grant publicly delivered a scathing response, accusing McMahon of engaging in "disgusting" behavior and employing "psychological torture" tactics to exert control over Grant.

"Frankly it's pretty disgusting," expressed Callis in a conversation with The Post."Vince's weeks-late attempt to defend his horrendous behavior - behavior he claims to this day never happened - is to try to showcase letters that Vince himself coerced her to write." 

A former employee, Grant, who was based at WWE's headquarters in Stamford from June 2019 to March 2022, has made serious allegations against McMahon.

Grant claims that she was trafficked to other executives and wrestlers within the company and that she suffered physical injuries as a result of the forceful use of sex toys.

McMahon has strongly denied Grant's allegations and asserted that their relationship was consensual. He is currently the subject of a federal investigation conducted by New York prosecutors.
