Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is facing serious accusations. According to a report by TMZ, the unidentified woman claims that she dated Rose and he took advantage of her trust.
The woman says that she and Rose were an item from 2011 until 2013. On one occasion, the woman says that Rose invited her to his home in Beverly Hills and told her to masturbate in front of him. She also said the Rose wanted her to have sex with two of his friends, Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen. The woman said she refused and that the men put a drug into her drink.
She said that she was able to leave Rose’s home with a friend. However, she claims that Rose and the two other men later broke into her apartment and gang-raped her while she was incapacitated. She said that she only remembers certain moments from the incident, but she recalls being forcibly gang-raped by Rose and his friends.
The woman said she waited two years to file a lawsuit because she felt embarrassed. She is currently suing Rose for an unspecified amount.
If the allegations are true, Rose’s public persona would be tarnished and he could lose millions in endorsements.
Since joining the Bulls, Rose hasn’t dealt with any major issues outside of basketball. Rose’s lawyer recently hit back at the woman by saying she is a money-hungry person who has attempted to extort Rose for years. The NBA All-Star will fight the lawsuit.
The Chicago Bulls organization have yet to respond to the allegations.
