TMZ is reporting that Derrick Rose has been sued by a woman who claims Rose and two of his friends “drugged and gang raped her.” The woman has remained anonymous to the public so far, although she claims that she and Rose dated off and on for several years.
According to TMZ’s report:
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 accuser has said that she waited two years to take action because she was “ashamed and embarrassed” about it and worried about her “conservative family” finding out about the situation.
Derrick Rose and his attorneys have not made any public statements yet.
No matter how you shake this out, it’s bad for D-Rose, not to mention the accuser/victim. I really hope the truth comes out and justice is served for all involved. But the cynical side of me knows that isn’t always the case.
