Meyer denied knowing about the abuse as recently as July 25th saying, “I was never told about anything.” Smith said she told Meyer’s wife Shelley but did not know if Shelley Meyer ever told her hall of fame husband. “Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban,” said. “I said: ‘That’s fine, you should tell Urban.”
