UPDATED: Sexual harrassment lawsuit against Browns QB Johnny Manziel a 'hoax'

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

While the suit was filed, the alleged plaintiff denies having any involvement and points to a 'serial filer' as the culprit.

UPDATE: Alleged plaintiff in the suit, Samantha Schacher, says she did not file any kind of suit against Manziel, and categorizes the entire issue as a "hoax."

ORIGINAL STORY: Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was sued by a woman who claims she is "scared to death" over Manziel's constant harassment, including naked photographs and descriptive text messages.

The plaintiff, Samantha Schacher, is seeking $25 million from Manziel because,"Defendant Manziel has been sexually harassing me since Valentine's Day 2013 ... sending me naked selfies of himself showing me his penis," according to the suit.

The full court document can be read here, much of it is in descriptively graphic detail.

It's a legitimate lawsuit, but whether there is any substance behind it is a different story. It would seem, on the surface, Manziel and the Browns won't comment in any way on the matter. Schacher doesn't have a lawyer representing her, which sounds off warning bells as to the legitimacy of her claims.

"Johnny Football" is one of the most polarizing figures in all of sports. After a highly successful and well-documented career at Texas A&M, Manziel was the most talked about prospect of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was taken by Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick.
