TMZ is reporting tonight that Derrick Rose has been sued by a woman who says Rose and two of his friends “drugged and gang raped her.” The woman is asking for unspecified damages. Here is how the lawsuit describes what happened, per TMZ:
Rose’s accuser says the two continued to date until August 2013, when Rose and two friends, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton (who is also Rose’s personal manager), invited her to Rose’s Beverly Hills house. She says there, they slipped a drug into her drink with the aim of raping her.
The plaintiff says she escaped the house with a friend, but 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.
The woman says she and Rose dated for two years, ending in 2013. She waited two years to file the suit, according to TMZ, because she was “ashamed and embarrassed” about it and worried about her “conservative family” finding out. TMZ does not say if the woman called police or if a law enforcement investigation was done.
While she was with Rose, the woman also claims Rose “tried to pressure her to masturbate in front of him, allow him to have sex with her friends and engage in group sex with strangers, all of which she says she refused,” TMZ reported.
