Panthers Cheerleaders Deny Lesbian Sex, Loud Moans Only Crying

Nov 12, 2005

Carolina Panthers cheerleaders Angela Keathley and Renee Thomas have been the buzz since Channel 8 in Tampa covered what appeared to be a standard bar altercation story and discovered that police were accusing the NFL cheerleaders of allegedly having public lesbian sex in a bathroom stall and getting into a drunken brawl after the alleged cheerleader sex act.

Reports were that loud moans could allegedly be heard coming from the stall and that apparently infuriated the women waiting in line.

The initial story had the two taking so long to finish up, that angry women became impatient waiting outside the stall and began pounding on the door and "encouraging" the women to finish up.

Published reports have quoted one witness as saying it was obvious to her that the gal pals were having sex.

But now Channel 8 from Tampa reports that the brunette TopCat (Angela Keathley) "was crying over an ex-boyfriend - not having sex with her teammate (blonde Renee Thomas) - when a fracas erupted over the women sharing a stall."

Angela Keathley, 26, of Charlotte, N.C., released the statement through Tampa attorney "She just wanted to make clear there was no sex,'' he said.

Earlier in the week, blonde bombshell Renee Thomas denied any lesbian sex between the two cheerleaders through her attorney as well.

Channel 8 Reports this version on its website:

At least two women alleged in a Tampa police report they heard moaning in a Banana Joe's bathroom stall about 2 a.m. Sunday and thought Keathley and Victoria Renee Thomas, 20, of Pittsboro, N.C., were having sex.

Another woman thought Thomas was drunk and ill.

Episcopo offered another version of events: that Keathley became "emotional" over talking about her ex-boyfriend in the bar. "The blonde was comforting her," he said.

(Insert "comforting" joke here)

When the women emerged, Thomas punched Melissa Holden, a woman waiting to use the bathroom, police said. Thomas identified herself to police using another cheerleader's driver's license, for which she faces a felony charge, in addition to misdemeanor battery.

Police are still investigating how she obtained the license.


Keathley and Thomas lost their spots on the cheerleading squad and the 26-year old brunette Angela Keathley has been suspended from her full-time job as a nurse over the alleged incident.

Penthouse magazine has reportedly offered the gals a chance to pose nude in the men's magazine.

The Carolina Panthers host the New York Jets on Sunday.
