Third Masseuse: Favre Texted Me, Too

Brett Favre apparently really liked those masseuses: A third masseuse (and fourth woman) has come out of the woodwork claiming the (former?) NFL quarterback sent her lewd text messages. Stephanie Dusenberry, who worked with the Minnesota Vikings while Favre was with them, tells Deadspin (via, initially, a typo-laden Blackberry message referring to Brett as "Brent") she received the texts last September. She says she contacted police for advice on the situation, but that she was told Favre wasn’t doing anything illegal.

Favre allegedly asked Dusenberry to come over and work on him because he was alone, and when she refused to go to his house, she says he texted her with, “you don't.know to not be touched by a woman for three weeks, come over and no one needs to know.” She says such behavior is not uncommon with NFL players, and names three others specifically. (Interestingly enough, sources say Favre is a changed man and now sends Bible verses, not penis pictures, in his text messages.) Click for background on the Favre scandal.
