Ezekiel Elliott, the Dallas Cowboys’ rookie running back and a player and NFL star, has been alleged to have beaten Tiffany Thompson, a woman who’s known to be his girlfriend.
In a pair of posts to her Instagram account, Thompson showed bruises on her arms, legs and neck. The first caption detailed what Thompson claimed she had endured.
“Just for every women out there getting abused it’s time to put a stop to it,” Thompson wrote. “This has been happening to me for months and it finally got out of control to where I was picked up and thrown across the room by my arms. Thrown into walls. Being choked to where I have to gasp for breath. Bruised everywhere, mentally and physically abused.”
Elliott’s agency says “I can assure you (the allegations) are not true,”
It has been reported that a police report was filed against Elliott in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday morning, and the report claimed that Elliott assaulted a woman in a parked vehicle. When contacted by police, Elliott denied that, and also denied that he had lived with the woman in the report.

NFL training camps are set to open, casting a dark cloud over the beginning of Elliott’s NFL career. The running back has become an instant fan favorite, with his jersey outselling every other player’s jersey (including the likes of Odell Beckham Jr. and Tom Brady) over the last three months.
