'RHOP': Juan Dixon Named In Sexual Lawsuit Against Coppin State, Accused Of Not Reporting Misconduct Between Assistant Coach And Student

Juan Dixon from The Real Housewives of Potomac has been named in a lawsuit. He is the ex-husband / current fiancé of longtime cast member, Robyn Dixon. The current head coach of basketball for Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland, Juan has been accused of not reporting sexual misconduct between an assistant basketball coach and a player.

Dixon included in lawsuit

A report from Baltimore Brew notes that Coppin State Assistant Coach Lucian Brownlee has been accused of catfishing a player named Ibn Willaims online. Eventually, their online encounters allegedly progressed to graphic texts and photos.

In the lawsuit, Williams accuses Brownlee of blackmailing him into recording sexual encounters

Upon his refusal to keep doing it, Brownlee allegedly shared the very explicit videos. Dixon is named in the lawsuit for not taking action against Brownlee after he learned of his behavior. The University has been accused of retaliating against him by snatching Williams’ financial aid.

Williams claims the incident started during his freshman year of college in 2018 when a girl who was romantically interested in him contacted him online.

He initially believed the images were private and in the context of a budding relationship between the two. But things took a turn when the person behind the account asked for more sexual content and threaten to release the ones they already had if he didn’t keep the images coming. Scared of what these images surfacing could do to his basketball career, he continued to send them.

During a conversation with Brownlee in 2019, Williams says Brownlee told him that had sent the same person sexual content.

The person blackmailing Williams then requested a video of him and Brownlee engaging in sexual acts. He initially refused but later gave in to the request. In 2020, Williams stopped responding to the blackmailer, which led to the explicit content being shared with basketball staff and faculty and on social media.

Dixon is accused of sweeping the incident under the rug

Williams met with Dixon to discuss other issues, and the topic of Brownlee came up. Dixon reportedly failed to take action.

No public statement has been made from the Dixons, but if Robyn returns for RHOP season 8, this is sure to be a storyline.
