Even with the 2016-17 NBA season quickly approaching, it’s hard to overlook Derrick Rose’s offseason. We’re, of course, referencing the gang rape case against him. In a bizarre twist, a friend of Jane Doe named Gabriela Chavez filed a declaration stating that the sex Rose had with Doe was consensual the night the alleged rape took place. It was also stated that Doe had consensual sex with Rose’s co-defendants, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton, as well.
An excerpt of the declaration was released by The White Bronco’s Dan Werly:
“We had a lot of fun in Las Vegas. During the trip to Vegas, the plaintiff told me that she had not heard from Derrick Rose for a while, and she had recently had sex with Derrick and two of his friends — Randall and Allen. She told me she had sex with all three of them, and that she was upset that Derrick was okay with it. At no time did she ever state or claim that Derrick Rose (or his friends) had raped her or done anything non-consensual. Just the opposite: she informed me in her own words that she had partied with them and been with all of them, but all indications were that it was consensual.”
“In light of my extensive background and training providing services to inner-city communities including abused women, I bluntly asked her if she was raped. She said “no” but that she did sleep with all three men. A month or so later, she told me she was going to sue and that she expected an out of court settlement.”
If this statement is found to be true, this could be a blow to Doe’s allegations. Despite this, those close to Rose claim that the New York Knicks player is extremely worried about the upcoming legal proceedings. It doesn’t help that he’s now being investigated for criminal charges as well.
The civil trial begins on October 4.
