The two reportedly met in Florida back in 2018 and started dating the same year. Their relationship wasn’t smooth, and they frequently broke up.

Later, she accused Dalvin Cook of assaulting her, and a picture of her drenched in blood with bruises on her face went viral.

This sparked a controversy, and later Trimble filed a lawsuit accusing Cook of assault, battery, and false imprisonment.

Alleged Lawsuit And Truth Behind The Incident

Following the alleged incident at Cook’s home in November 2020, after Trimble tried to end their relationship, she filed a lawsuit on November 9, 2021.

As per the lawsuit, after breaking up with Cook, she gathered her belongings and asked him to give her a hand with the stuff, but the NFL star got angry.

He reportedly grabbed her arm and slung her whole body over the couch, slamming her face into the coffee table.

Gracelyn broke her lower forehead and nose and was allegedly assaulted again in the shower.

When the news of the lawsuit started spreading, Cook publicly addressed the allegations saying he is the victim.

The NFL later released a statement saying that “the matter will be reviewed under the personal conduct policy. We will continue to monitor developments, but there’s no change to (Cook’s) status.”

However, Cook’s attorney, David Valentini, said that Trimble broke into Cook’s house, assaulted him and two houseguests, and is now trying to “extort him for millions of dollars.”

Valentini said that Cook was the victim of assault that night and that he was defending himself. She entered his home without consent, punched and maced him, then held him hostage with a firearm.

In July 2023, there was news that the former Vikings running back offered $1 million to his ex-girlfriend to clear his lawsuit.

Reportedly, Cook initially offered $800,000 before upping his offer, which was “evidence of a crime,” as per Trimble’s attorney.
