Delicia Cordon, the estranged live-in girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, was hospitalized after a brutal assault by an unknown assailant at McCoy’s Georgia mansion — an attack that Cordon insists was orchestrated by the star football player as a ploy to forcibly evict her from the residence. Cordon’s lawyer, Tanya Mitchell Graham, said that her client was asleep when a man entered the house around 3 a.m. on Tuesday morning and demanded that Cordon hand over “specific pieces of jewelry” given to her by McCoy. The assailant then savagely beat Cordon, leaving her face horribly bruised and bloodied.
A friend of Cordon’s, Mia Boykin, also accused McCoy of orchestrating the attack in an Instagram post in which she also claimed that the football star had previously beaten both his son and his dog, causing long-term health consequences in the case of the animal. The post, which has since been deleted, was a before-and-after photo showing a smiling Cordon in one image and Cordon hospitalized with severe facial wounds in the adjacent image. “The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!” the post read, according to PEOPLE. “This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!” Later Tuesday, Graham, Cordon’s lawyer, released images showing Cordon in the hospital with severe injuries after the brutal attack. Graham also released a full statement about the attack on her client.
According to Georgia court records obtained by ESPN, McCoy has been trying to evict Cordon from the mansion since at least last July. The running back has taken to social media to deny the allegations against him as “totally baseless.”

Meanwhile fellow football stars Plaxico Burress and Richie Incognito also defended him — claiming that the women were lying “to gain exposure” for themselves or making “false assumptions” respectively. In a statement, Milton Police Captain Charles Barstow said that detectives were still investigating the case, but that “the preliminary investigation indicates that this residence was specifically targeted by the suspect or suspects.”
