A Title IX lawsuit against LSU has been updated with three more women coming forward saying the school mishandled alleged rape and sexual harassment.

The updated complaint adds to allegations against former LSU running back Derrius Guice, who is referred to as John Doe in the suit. The Advocate notes that the women attached to the John Doe allegations have publicly accused Guice.

Ashlyn Robertson is the latest woman to come forward. The suit states that a former LSU football player told Ed Orgeron that Guice raped his girlfriend, Roberston, and Orgeron did not report it to the Title IX office or anyone else at LSU.

Guice’s alleged rape of Robertson was first reported in a bombshell USA TODAY investigation in 2020. Orgeron allegedly telling the other Tiger player “everybody’s girlfriend sleeps with other people,” referenced in the lawsuit, first surfaced in the USA TODAY report from last year. Orgeron released a statement last year after the USA TODAY article:

“The anonymous quote attributed to me by a former player in USA Today is not accurate,” Orgeron said in his released statement. “Out of respect for the young man’s privacy, I will not reveal the full details of the conversation. What I will say is that a player came into my office to discuss transferring from our program. We also discussed the player’s relationship challenges with his girlfriend. I told him what I would tell my own sons: ‘We all experience heartbreak growing up. Do not throw away a promising academic and football career at LSU because of a personal obstacle.’ Any insinuation that I had knowledge of his girlfriend and Derrius Guice is completely false.”

The lawsuit was first filed in April by a group of seven current and former LSU students.
