Woman testifies in rape suit against NBA star Derrick Rose
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.
