Derrick Rose’s Ex-Girlfriend Accuses Him Of Gang Rape In New Lawsuit, His Lawyer Responds

Derrick-Rose

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is at the center of an explosive lawsuit and the accusations against him are pretty ugly.

According to a report from TMZ, a former girlfriend of Derrick’s who has chosen to remain anonymous and come forward only under the name “Jane Doe,” has filed a lawsuit against him seeking unspecified damages on accusations that he was involved in drugging and gang raping her back in 2013.

The woman dated Rose for 2 years beginning in 2011 and says he attempted to pressure her to masturbate in front of him and allow him to engage in sex with her friends during the course of their love affair, although she maintains that she refused to do either.  Nevertheless, she says they continued dating until an incident in 2013, when she claims he slipped a drug into her drink after inviting her to his home for a party and attempted to rape her. The woman says she managed to get away initially, but says Rose and his friends broke into her house later on that evening and gang raped her while she was still under the influence of the drug he had allegedly put in her drink.

The initial question from many upon hearing this woman’s story was why she waited two whole years before coming forward. She says she was reluctant to share her story or file the lawsuit because she ashamed of what had happened and was also worried about her family finding out.

Rose’s lawyer has since responded to the lawsuit, depicting the woman off as money hungry and claiming that the allegations are completely untrue. The lawyer says that this is the third attorney the woman has hired in attempt to sue Rose since their breakup in 2013, telling TMZ,

“We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous.”

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls organization has issued the following statement on the accusations, choosing to refrain from taking a solid stance as the facts of the case continue to unfold.

“We just learned about this matter and do not know all the facts. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”

Public reactions to news of the lawsuit and this woman’s story have ranged from disappointment in Derrick Rose to skepticism towards the validity of her claims.  What are your thoughts on these accusations, Clutchettes?

    Wow these allegations are pretty egregious.
    I don’t follow football but I do know the privilege and power of being a professional athlete can leave men to feel as though they can get away with the some of the worst atrocities against women.

      You know what I want to know, PrimmestPlum? These professional athletes have mega access to vaginas all over the place. Now I know they say rape isn’t about sex, but power; however, why would any of them feel the need to rape a woman? I guess it’s the power principle.

        The movie Eyes Wide Shut (which shows how many professionals role) didn’t lie.

                OK. Eyes Wide Shut was a movie directed by the late Stanley Kubrick. The movie is about a man going into a underworld of secret societies, orgies, and rituals. Stanley during 1999 revealed a lot of stuff that most of the general public didn’t know about back then. He passed away mysterious after he made that film.

                  Hmmmm. Interesting. This screams Ashley Madison! I wonder if the mystery was that he should’ve kept his mouth shut because those secret societies don’t play.

                  Thank you, Truth.

                    You’re Welcome Sister. He finished the film in 1999.

              You know, I looked it up after Truth told me about, and it looks interesting. Freaky…hmm. LOL. It appears that there are two versions: One edited and one unedited. I guess the unedited version is hard to come by online. I love a good entertaining movie.

        Yes it definitely is the power principle. I think it stems from entitlement and insecurity. In this case, from the info that was given it seems like Rose tried to coerce her in one way, (masturbating FOR him instead of for herself as masturbation generally is, and she resisted and thus remained “elusive” so in his primal mind perhaps he felt jilted, (due to entitlement issues) and felt that he had to “prove” himself (due to insecurity, because it was an alleged gang rape,so that throws the gang mentality and need to “prove” oneself to their group. That reeks of insecurity to me.)

          You’re totally right. Too many celebrities are egotistical.

    “The initial question from many upon hearing this woman’s story was why she waited two whole years before coming forward.” People always ask this question and her response is the usual answer. I was on another site when I read this story and most of the people — mainly women — said they didn’t believe her. Another reason why rapes go unreported is that women know their claims will be questioned, especially dealing with a rich, well-known male, and they know their sex lives will probably be brought into the mix as well. You know they love to humiliate women who claim sexual harassment/rape. They want to know what you wore the night you were assaulted and what you did to deserve it. Victim blaming is something else. I don’t know if that’s the case here, so I’m going to read the report

    Everyone
    has the right to speak their voices. Rape is a serious matter and rape is
    completely evil. Derrick Rose plays for the Chicago Bulls. He has suffered
    injury and he’s an effective basketball. The most important thing is not athletics.
    It is about the truth. Both Derrick Roses and the ex-girlfriend have given
    completely different accounts about what happened. The allegations are serious
    and they should be taken seriously. If the allegations are true, then that’s
    horrible. Just because a person hasn’t immediately reported on a rape doesn’t mean that this person’s character should be slandered. We should never victim blame at all.

      Right, Truth. There are many sexual assaults that never get reported. It doesn’t mean they didn’t take place. There’s so much pressure on women to prove they were assaulted when their past, present and future sex lives are put on blast. It’s so unfair.

    This is horrible

    I don’t get why the attorney mentioned she went through 3 lawyers. That sounds like she’s been trying to seriously get justice more than anything else. We all know lawyers are cowards when it comes to rape cases. When it comes to rape, the best case scenario is for the women to be lying and not have endured such a vicious crime. Worst case is that they actually went through it and have a lifetime of after effects to deal with. The lawsuit is just a way to make sure other women are spared.

      He mentioned her lawyers because he knows that when men hear that they will instantly think she’s shopping for lawyers to extort him. They will assume the other lawyers didn’t want to work with her because she’s lying.

    In situations like this, what I want to know is….did you go to the police station first? I mean, it is a crime, and you should have it criminally investigated. The statute of limitations for rape should be well outside of 2 years, everywhere. So did she go to the police? That’s my question. Because people who rape people should be in jail, they shouldn’t just be broke. Do one, but don’t leave the other undone.

      Yes it is a crime. However, we all know what women go through after reporting a rape. Add fame and fortune to the mix and the woman is just about guaranteed to be ridiculed, harassed, and interrogated like a criminal about the incident, what she was wearing and her past. It’s really easy to say “just go to the police” from the outside looking in. But, people don’t think clearly after a tramatic event. Once you’ve showered or waited a few days most of the evidence is gone. Even after reporting the rape kits are sometimes inconclusive. Rich people have the money to hire lawyers that can get them off for crimes they actually committed. Ask any of Jonny Cochran’s clients. So then the woman has spent 2 years reliving a tramatic event, having her life scrutinize and the person walks away with his reputation in tact and people feeling sorry for him. I’m not saying that’s necessarily the case with this women. But the failure to report a rape is not an indicator of whether or not it happened. The burden of proof is lower in civil suits than criminal cases. In a perfect world rapist would be in jail and broker. But if making him pay financially is the only way to make it public I don’t have a problem with that.

        You are very correct. The failure to report a rape is not an indicator of whether or not it happened. But, it does make me suspicious when a police report is never filed. Sure, rape victims have been through a lot of trauma. It’s amazing that any of them report it right away. But when you ARE ready to report it, like I said…..why not the police station first? I don’t know whether or not this woman went, because I don’t know. I’m just saying, I would think that’d be the first place you’d go, evidence or not, so they could start an investigation.
