NFL’s LeSean McCoy settles lawsuit with ex over Milton home invasion

A private settlement has been reached in the lawsuit filed against NFL running back LeSean McCoy by his ex-girlfriend, fashion designer Delicia Cordon, according to court records filed Thursday.

The civil lawsuit stems from a July 10, 2018 home invasion at McCoy’s Milton home during which Cordon was injured.

Cordon’s lawsuit claimed that McCoy was responsible for injuries she received during the home invasion — including injuries to her head, face and arms. She said at the time that McCoy had made changes to the home security system without letting her know.

McCoy, who was out of town at the time of the attack, has denied the allegations.

The details of the lawsuit were not listed in court documents. Attorneys for Cordon nor McCoy were not immediately available for comment.

Cordon told a 911 dispatcher that the suspect hit her in the face with a gun, took her jewelry and cash, and locked her into the  the bathroom before he left.

In September 2018, a $40,000 reward was offered for information helping solve the case.

The incident happened just before the Buffalo Bills kicked off their 2018 season. The 30-year-old McCoy had just been named team captain by his teammates. McCoy now plays for the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to court records, McCoy tried to get Cordon evicted from the home, once in 2017 and another time in 2018. She voluntarily left at some point.

Judge Michael L. Brown, with the North Georgia federal court system, ordered the case closed Wednesday. Brown added the following stipulation: “If settlement negotiations fail, the parties shall promptly move to reopen the case.”
