NFL player LeSean “Shady” McCoy has been accused of being responsible for a violent attack on his former girlfriend.
On Tuesday, a horrific photograph of the player’s ex, Delicia Cordon, went viral on social media. In the photograph, obtained by PEOPLE, the designer is covered in blood and lying in a hospital bed.
The legal firm representing Cordon said in a statement to PEOPLE that she was attacked at around 3am Tuesday morning as she slept in the Georgia home that she shares with the football star. The pair is currently estranged.
“Ms. Cordon was physically assaulted in the home by a male assailant who entered the home with no signs of forced entry,” the statement says.
The man allegedly demanded a number of specific pieces of jewelry and when he could not get bracelets off her wrist he pistol-whipped her multiple times and her cousin was also struck, according to the firm.
“Ms. Cordon sustained multiple injuries to her head, face and arms during this horrendous attack,” the statement continues.
The graphic image was originally posted on Instagram by Mia Michelle Boykin, who claims to be a friend of Cordon.
“I can’t believe you did this to my best friend! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!” Boykin wrote in the post which has since been deleted. “The world needs to know what type of animal you really are! This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!”
Boykin also accused McCoy, a running back for the Buffalo Bills, of beating his dog and trying to “viciously” beat his young son.
“We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure,” the message continued. “Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage.”
McCoy has vehemently denied the allegations made against him. Representatives for McCoy did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me are completely false,” McCoy wrote on Instagram. “Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
