Transgender Woman Files $10M Suit Vs. Former 49er She Says Sodomized Her

A transgender New York woman has filed a $10 million lawsuit against a former 49ers cornerback she says forcibly sodomized her last year.

Angelina Mavilia, a male-to-female transgender woman, claims Eric Green met her at a Scottsdale, Ariz. casino on Jan. 24, 2009. Green, who spent the preseason with the 49ers this year and has also played for the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins, was a Cardinal at the time of the alleged meeting.

According to Mavilia's lawsuit -- filed last week in southern Florida, where Green resides -- he convinced her to accompany him to his condo so "he could telephone his dealer, get some Marijuana, and get high" and "introduce her to his friend, the Prince of Bahrain."

The Prince of Bahrain's puzzling cameo in this lawsuit is ever so brief. Instead of meeting royalty, claims the document, Mavilia and Green began to engage in consensual sexual activity. This, according to the suit, would not end well.

"Defendant attempted to have vaginal intercourse with Plaintiff but was not able to do so because her surgically-constructed vagina was too tight," reads the suit. "Defendant asked Plaintiff whether there was 'anything she wanted to tell him.'"

At this point, Mavilla claims she was held down and sodomized against her will. Afterwards, she says, the football player told her "This never happened ... You better not tell anyone about this."

Mavilia is demanding $5 million in compensatory damages and $5 million more in punitive damages, plus any other costs the court deems apprpriate.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
