Point guard and Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose accused of rape and may face lawsuit according to People.
On Wednesday in the Los Angeles Superior Court, there was a civil compliant filed by a women name Jane Doe. They met one another during the NBA lockout in 2011 at a party Rose hosted.
She said that Rose gave her a drug-laced tequila drink at his house on Aug 26, 2013. Later on Rose and his friends, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton went to her place to sexually assaulted her while she was passed out. Rose’s attorney Mark Baute believes these allegations are false statements.
“This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete,” said Baute. “Mr. Rose was in a non-exclusive, consensual sexual relationship with the plaintiff for over two years. The plaintiff expressed no complaints about Mr. Rose until various lawyers began to surface and demand that the plaintiff be paid millions of dollars. This is the third lawyer the plaintiff has retained in this matter. Two years have passed since Mr. Rose ended the consensual relationship with the plaintiff, and her claims are as meritless now as they were two years ago. We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous.”
More updates will be said throughout the coming weeks on a player dealing with another problem in his young career.
