Janel Grant accuses that she was forced to write a 'love letter' directed towards Vince McMahon

Janel Grant has come forward with allegations that she was coerced into sending a “love letter” to Vince McMahon, a figure against whom she has filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit implicates McMahon in activities including sex trafficking, the dissemination of nude photos and explicit videos of Grant without her consent, and other misconduct during her tenure as a former WWE employee. The legal action also named the company itself and former WWE Executive John Laurnatis as defendants.

The New York Post recently obtained a copy of the letter, dated December 24, 2021, in which Grant referred to McMahon as “my best friend, my love, and my everything.” In the letter, Grant expressed sentiments of dependence and attachment, writing, “After almost 3 years together, it’s like my life isn’t even real to me unless you’re there and in it, and I’m sharing it all with you.”

Grant’s attorney, Ann Callis, has condemned McMahon’s alleged involvement in the drafting of the letter, stating, “Frankly it’s pretty disgusting that Vince’s weeks-late attempt to defend his horrendous behavior — behavior he claims to this day never happened — is to try to showcase letters that Vince himself coerced her to write. His psychological torture of her continues — as is typical of abusive predators who respond to women speaking out with increased threats. While Janel isn’t a stranger to his intimidation tactics, this is a new low even for him.”

In response, McMahon’s attorney, Jessica Taub Rosenberg of the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres, asserted, “This is revisionist history. No one coerced Ms. Grant to write that letter. She wrote it of her own accord. The fact that the letter shows it was the 24th draft speaks volumes.”

It is worth noting that the law firm representing McMahon in this matter, Kasowitz Benson Torres, also represented MLW in their lawsuit against WWE, which resulted in a $20 million settlement.

In text messages exchanged just three days before the letter was sent, Grant informed McMahon that she had undergone surgery on her pointing finger, expressing concern about her ability to write the letter. “How will I write your letter?” Grant queried in the text conversation. “I can type and read it…or try to write in a couple days,” she added. “I’m so sorry if I mess this up, I want you to have a nice letter.”
