More details continue to surface regarding the alleged sexual assault accusation made on Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com reports the accusation stems from a money dispute between Agholor and the female employee from Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club.

The source told NJ Advance Media that Agholor and a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club in South Philadelphia agreed to go to a private room for an hour on Thursday afternoon, but the dancer left shortly after the two entered the room.

The person with knowledge of the incident said Agholor had agreed to pay the woman $1,400 for their time in the private room, but the dancer left before the agreed upon time and Agholor paid her only $800. The person said the dancer wanted the full amount.

The dancer left the bar, was picked up by a friend, and the person said she never informed management of the alleged rape.

According to the same source, multiple dancers have told management that Agholor did nothing wrong, including one who was with another Eagles' player throughout the night.

The employee's co-workers aren't the only ones reportedly claiming Agholor is innocent. Multiple reports indicate sources close to Agholor believe he was set up.

Stay tuned for more details on this developing story.
