(Newser) – The 16-year-old Lawrence Taylor is accused of raping told him she was 19 at the behest of alleged pimp Rasheed Davis. Davis also instructed her to charge Taylor $300, the victim told cops, according to documents obtained by TMZ. An FBI agent says Davis showed potential customers “almost nude” pictures of the girl on his cell phone, and that when he told her to have sex with Taylor, she refused—so he assaulted her and forced her.

The news comes on the same day Nutrisystem fired Taylor as a spokesperson. “We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor,” says a rep.
