LeSean McCoy denies allegations that he abused his ex-girlfriend

BUFFALO, NY (WROC) - LeSean McCoy says allegations made on social media that he abused his ex-girlfriend are "totally baseless and offensive claims."

In an Instagram post, a friend of McCoy's ex, De Cordon, posted a graphic photo of Cordon bruised and covered with blood. The friend, Instagram user @miamor_i_adore, claims the abuse came at the hands of McCoy.

The Instagram post goes on to claim that McCoy had also abused his son, his dog and used steroids.

But, in a statement posted to Twitter, McCoy said the allegations were bogus and claimed he hasn't been in contact with Cordon in months.

The tweet reads, "For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

The Bills released a statement saying they have been in contact with McCoy and the NFL. "We wil continue to gather information."

In court documents, News 8 has learned that McCoy was in the process of trying to evict Cordon from a home he owns in Alpharetta, Georgia.

According to the court papers, Cordon has lived at the home since October 2016 while the couple was dating. On June 1, Cordon claims that McCoy had her belongings removed from the home while she was out of town.

Less than two weeks later, a notice for the eviction was also served. Cordon is currently fighting that notice.

UPDATE 2: The attorney for Delicia Cordon released a statement Tuesday evening detailing what happened during the home invastion in the wee hours. 

The statement says McCoy has asked for pieces of jewelry back on several occasions and Cordon refused. McCoy said by keeping the jewelry and living in his house, she became a target for a robbery. 

Cordon claims at about 3am, an assailant entered her house with no evidence of forced entry. He demanded the very same items of jewelry and bruised Cordon's wrist trying to grab bracelets off of it. 

The man followed by hitting Cordon in the face multiple times with a firearm and she sustained multiple injuries to her head, face and arms. 

The statement goes on to detail how McCoy--while at Bills offseason practices--had directed friends and family to move Cordon's things out of his house. When she saw the move happening via live streaming security cameras, Cordon called to police to stop it. 

McCoy responded by removing the security system and replacing it. He did not give Cordon access to the new system. 

The statement does acknowledge there is a court case involving McCoy's attempted eviction of Cordon that is ongoing. It also claims McCoy has not checked on Cordon to ascertain her well being. 

UPDATE: In response to the allegations against LeSean McCoy, Milton, GA police say they responded to a home invasion early Tuesday morning.

In a statement to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo, police say they were called to a home on Hickory Pass, where McCoy owns a home, for the report of a woman that had been assaulted by an intruder. The woman needed a visit to the hospital for treatment, but was released. 

Police write, "The preliminary investigation indicates that this residence was specifically targeted by the suspect or suspects, and not a random incident."
