Woman tes­ti­fies in rape suit against NBA star Der­rick Rose

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

A woman ac­cus­ing NBA star Der­rick Rose and two friends of gang-rape tes­ti­fied Thurs­day in the trial of her $21.5 mil­lion law­suit against the New York Knicks player, who ap­peared in court for the first time.

When Rose en­tered the court­room, the woman paused and be­came emo­tional while be­ing ques­tioned by her at­tor­ney about the events on a night in Au­gust 2013.

The woman said she went to Rose’s rented Bev­erly Hills man­sion for drinks, got very drunk, felt like she had been drugged, and does not re­mem­ber much about the man­sion or the evening.

She said she drank be­fore go­ing to the man­sion then had 3½ shots of tequila when she got there and felt dif­fer­ent.

“I just felt I was less in con­trol, more goofy,” she said.

The wit­ness said she had pre­vi­ously had tequila with Rose and felt like it gave her strength.

“This was the op­po­site,” she said.
