NBA Star Derrick Rose Accused Of Gang-Raping Ex-Girlfriend
Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has been accused of rape by a purported ex-girlfriend, reports TMZ.
A woman, identified only as Jane Doe, says she dated the NBA star from 2011 to 2013. During their relationship, she claims she was pressured to engage in various sexual acts, including masturbating in front of him, allowing him to have sex with her friends and engage in group sex with strangers, all of which she refused.
Despite the attempts, they dated up until August 2013, when she says Rose and two friends, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton (his personal manager), raped her. One evening, she says she was invited to his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. Once there, they allegedly slipped a drug into her drink with the intent to rape her.
She managed to leave the home with a friend without incident. However, later that night, Rose and his friends broke into her apartment and gang raped her while she was incapacitated. She says she remembers only "flashes" of the incident, but can remember the defendants forcibly raping her.
As for why she waited this long to come forward, she says she was "ashamed and embarrassed" of what happened and concerned her "conservative family" would find out.
Doe is seeking unspecified damages.
A lawyer Rose called the claims "outrageous," adding "we have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed."
Rose's lawyer Lisa Cohen, in a statement, acknowledged that Rose and the woman were in a consensual, nonexclusive relationship, but said the accusations are "completely false and without any factual basis."
