The woman allegedly gang raped by Derrick Rose and his group claimed that she was pestered by the New York Knicks star for a foursome.
The NBA star has maintained that he and the woman, only identified as Jane Doe, had a consensual sexual relationship. Rose did not deny that he had sex with the woman, but he further claimed that no rape had occurred, the NY Daily News reported.
Jane Doe Turned Down Foursome Offers?
In his defense, Rose said he has several text messages to prove that the girl was not forced to have sex with him. Now, the woman slapped Rose with a $21 million lawsuit before a court in California.
The woman alleged that she was raped by Rose and his friends in her own apartment sometime in August 2013. But the Nicks’ point guard vehemently denied the woman’s accusation, saying she was fully aware they were going to have sex.
Apart from Rose, the accuser also filed rape charges against two of Rose’s friends. Court records reveal that despite Rose’s persistence in sending raunchy text messages, she repeatedly turned down his invitation for threesomes and foursomes.
Rape or Extortion?
“All the evidence, however, including Defendant Rose’s own testimony, shows that he made great efforts to get the Plaintiff to engage in sexual activity that she was not comfortable with-starting with requests for her to masturbate on video, which she refused, and, after a year-and-a-half of dating, moving to requests to have group sex, which she always refused,” her court papers say, as reported by the NY Daily News.
Rose, through his lawyer, maintained that there was never rape involved. Rose’s lawyer argued that it was a simple case of extortion, and that the accuser is only interested in seeking money from Rose by hiding from the cloak of anonymity as assured by law.
