The ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has filed a lawsuit against him alleging that he beats his young son and dog as she claims he failed to protect her during a violent home invasion last month.
Delicia Cordon filed the lawsuit on Friday in Fulton County, Georgia alleging that the NFL star would ‘often brutally beat his dog’ and would also ‘aggressively, physically discipline and beat his young son’.
Without blaming McCoy for playing a role in the home invasion, Cordon also accused the 30-year-old of breaching his duty to protect her because he owned the home in Atlanta where the pistol whip robbery occurred in July.
Cordon, who was left bloodied, beaten and had $133,000 worth of jewelry stolen, initially told police she believed McCoy was to blame.
She alleged in the lawsuit that McCoy ‘permitted a hazardous condition to exist’ by installing a new security system and cameras and denying her access to arm the system.
McCoy has previously said he had no involvement in the home invasion and hasn’t had any contact with Cordon in months.
He also said the allegations that he beat his son and dog, which were first made by Cordon’s friend last month on social media, were ‘totally baseless’ and ‘completely false’.
Cordon was pistol whipped, robbed, hit in the head and locked in a bathroom in the early hours of July 10 when a man broke into the home while she was sleeping.
Police are still investigating and have not yet identified a suspect.
Graphic photos of Cordon’s injuries emerged online soon after the ordeal and social media posts accused McCoy of bloodying his former girlfriend.

He has spent the past three weeks practicing with the Bills at their training camp facility in suburban Rochester.
He declined to comment on the home invasion or other allegations made against him during a news conference on the first day of camp. McCoy said he was instead focused solely on preparing for the regular season.
The latest lawsuit was filed as McCoy continues his yearlong battle to formally evict Cordon from his home.
Fulton County Magistrate Court records show that McCoy initiated eviction proceedings against Cordon back in July 2017, saying that the pair were no longer in a relationship.
Cordon had challenged the eviction in June, saying she had been in a relationship with McCoy for at least two years and that she and her children have lived with the NFL star at his home since October 2016.
In her lawsuit filed last week, Cordon said she has already moved out of the home and alleges that McCoy is liable for the assault, battery and emotional distress inflicted upon her.
She is also seeking the return of several pieces of furniture and rugs, as well as some personal items belonging to her and her son.
Tamarcus Porter, who is described as McCoy’s friend and personal assistant, is also named in the lawsuit.

Cordon said Porter had the locks to the home changed and deactivated the doorbell camera that was linked to her phone on June 3. She said Porter and another person entered the home two days later and installed a new security system without providing her the access codes.
She left on vacation on July 3, and had her cousin stay at the home to take care of Cordon’s son. Cordon said she returned on July 9. The next morning, Cordon said she was startled by loud noises coming from a bedroom which she said Porter would occasionally occupy.
Cordon said a male assailant then entered the master bedroom and pulled a gun, which he used to strike her in the face several times. The assailant, she said, indicated he knew McCoy, and then demanded specific pieces of jewelry which McCoy had given to her for her birthday in 2016.
In the lawsuit, Cordon said she and McCoy’s relationship became serious during a trip to Las Vegas in June 2016. A few months later, she said McCoy offered to buy her a home and have both of their names placed on the title.
She said two days before they closed on buying the home, McCoy told her he was only going to place his name on the deed based on instructions he received from a financial adviser.
Cordon said McCoy’s behavior became erratic after the 2016 season, which is when she alleges the running back would ‘brutally beat his dog in the presence of (Cordon) and her friends’.
Without going into detail, she said McCoy would ‘aggressively, physically discipline and beat his young son over minor mistakes that all young children make’.
Cordon said when she confronted McCoy about the beating, he would yell and scream at her.
On Friday, Cordon posted a note on her Instagram account saying her injuries are healing but she is still having emotional difficulty dealing with what happened.
