Miami Dolphins star cornerback Xavien Howard reportedly has been stalked and threatened by the woman accusing him of giving her genital herpes.

The woman is currently suing Howard for giving her the incurable, lifelong sexually transmitted disease. However, Howard’s attorney is asking for the case to be dismissed.

This has become an ugly situation on both sides, as the woman is seeking financial compensation for the damages caused by contracting the sexually transmitted disease.

According to the woman’s complaint, Howard had admitted to giving her the disease, saying that the “damage is done.”

“Maaaaan I been told you I was sorry for giving it to you,” Howard allegedly told the woman. “But what can I do now? The damage is done.”

There appear to be two sides to the story now, as Howard’s attorney appears to think the woman is attempting to benefit financially from the NFL star.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Howard is set up well with his current contract in Miami. The deal runs through the 2026 season, and he is one of the highest paid cornerbacks in the NFL, making $90 million over the next five years.

Howard and the Dolphins certainly hope that this doesn’t become a bigger issue, as the team needs him to be focused for the stretch run in the 2022 season. Miami went all in at the league’s trade deadline on Tuesday, acquiring running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and pass rusher Bradley Chubb.

At 5-3, the team clearly thinks it has a chance to contend for a playoff spot and potentially a Super Bowl. Howard is a big part of that plan, especially since the team has dealt with several injuries in the secondary this season.

The addition of Chubb to bolster the team’s pass rush should make things easier on Howard. Hopefully, Chubb will help Miami improve on its pedestrian sack numbers (just 15 this season) and give quarterbacks less time to throw the ball against the defense.

Howard has played in seven games for the Dolphins this season. He has recorded 22 tackles and five passes defended. While Howard hasn’t recorded an interception in the 2022 season, he has 15 picks since the start of the 2020 campaign and has led the NFL in interceptions in a single season twice in his career.

It will be interesting to see how the woman’s actions towards Howard change the claim she has built against him.
