NBA superstar Derrick Rose, 26, is facing allegations that he participated in the gang rape of an ex-girlfriend after she was drugged, according to a new lawsuit.
TMZ reports that the woman, identified only as Jane Doe, dated the Chicago Bulls point guard from 2011-2013. During that time he reportedly tried to get her to participate in group sex, be allowed to have sex with her friends and masturbate in front of him. Doe claims she said no to all of the acts.
The victim goes on to claim that in August 2013, she was drugged while at Rose’s Beverly Hills home by the player and two of his friends, Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen.
The men allegedly intended to rap Doe, but she managed to leave with a friend.
Later that night the three men went to the victim’s apartment and reportedly gang raped her. She claims she waited two years to file the lawsuit because she was “ashamed and embarrassed” of what happened and concerned her “conservative family” would find out.
She’s asking a judge to award her unspecified damages.
Rose’s attorney, Lisa Cohen, told TMZ the allegations were an attempt to shakedown her client.
“We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous,” Cohen said.
