EXCLUSIVE: NBA star Derrick Rose – Demands Rape Accuser Pay HIM $46k in Legal Battle
The Dirty can exclusively reveal NBA star Derrick Rose has headed back to court in the gang rape lawsuit … demanding his accuser cough up $46,000+ to him for reimbursement for having to defend himself in the case.
Last year, a jury found the NBA star and his 2 friends not liable for the alleged gang rape of Rose’s former girlfriend. The jury consisted of eight members – six men and two women.
According to reports, the jurors were unanimous in their decision on the first vote. They explained that “nothing added up” and therefore it was a quick discussion before they read their verdict in the court room … after only hours of deliberation.
The woman at the center of the case accused Rose and his friends of gang raping her at her apartment back in 2013. She filed suit demanding $21.5 million dollars in damages.
Then recently, Rose filed docs demanding the woman pay him $46,017.97 in reimbursements. He believes she should pay costs – $2k in service fees, $15k for deposition costs and various other expenses. A defendant can seek to be paid for such costs if they are victorious.
During his 8 seasons with the NBA he reportedly was paid over $94 million dollars and he has a 13-year million dollar contract with Adidas worth a reported $185 million.
