A woman, identified as “Jane Doe” is suing Derrick Rose for allegedly raping her saying that “the NBA superstar and two of his friends drugged and gang raped her”, according to TMZ. Rose and his camp denied the allegations of course, saying its “outrageous.”
The woman claims Rose and her were dating from 2011 to 2013 when Rose invited her into his Beverly Hills home. She was able to escape the house with a friend, but Rose, supposedly, broke into her house later that evening and gang raped her while she was incapacitated.
She only remembers flashes of the incident, but cant remember if she was forcibly raped or not. She disclosed that Rose has been trying to get her to do a lot of sexual things for him, but she refused all of them. She only waited two years to take action because she was ‘ashamed and embarrassed’ of the incident and she did not want her family to find out.
A spokesman for Derrick Rose left this statement:
The plaintiff’s allegations are completely false and without any factual basis. This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete. Mr. Rose was in a non-exclusive, consensual sexual relationship with the plaintiff for over two years. The plaintiff expressed no complaints about Mr. Rose until various lawyers began to surface and demand that the plaintiff be paid millions of dollars. … This is the third lawyer the plaintiff has retained in this matter. Two years have passed since Mr. Rose ended the consensual relationship with the plaintiff, and her claims are as meritless now as they were two years ago. We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous.

Rose is already on a slippery slope because of his injuries, but this can definitely make his case for his endorsements worse. The previous MVP will have to work his way out of this jam.
