Keith Clinkscales, the brother in the middle, is in a whole lot of ish today!

Mr. Clinkscales claims the suggestion he masturbated in front of the ESPN and Good Morning America reporter is a ‘flat-out lie’ spread by Joan Lynch (SEEN ON RIGHT), an executive producer he fired.

The 47-year-old ex-Vibe magazine president filed a defamation lawsuit in Manhattan Criminal Court, which accused Mrs. Lynch, 36, of having a partly racial motive for the accusation.

Mr. Clinkscales, who left his role as ESPN’s head of content development when it was announced last month that the group was being axed, also claims Mrs. Lynch was annoyed because he was promoted over her.

So how did it all go down ALLEGEDLY….

Ms. Andrews, 33, and Mr. Clinkscale were travelling together on a work-related matter, with her in the middle seat and he by the aisle, the website reported.

‘At some point during the trip, Andrews saw Clinkscales masturbating in his seat, beneath his iPad,’ Deadspin wrote. When he realized he’d been caught, Mr. Clinkscales allegedly panicked and said, ‘You know, I’m one of your bosses.’

Ms. Andrews reportedly told a Deadspin source about the incident, which Mr. Clinkscales believes to be Ms Lynch, as well as ESPN anchor Sage Steele.

She refused to make a formal complaint however because she was still ‘scarred’ from the public fallout of the infamous peephole stalking incident in 2009.

Two years ago a video taken through a peephole of a naked Ms. Andrews brushing her hair in a Nashville Marriott hotel room was posted on various websites.

But Mr. Clinksclae is suing Joan Lynch (above on right), the executive producer he fired, for allegedly spreading flat-out lies.

ESPN issued this statement: “With respect to these reports, we want to state very clearly that in accordance with ESPN policies, if a claim is brought to our attention, it is taken very seriously and responded to appropriately.”
