Grizzlies $6.5 million Derrick Rose denies rape allegations, accuses accuser of fabricating story: “she owed me”

Point guard Derrick Rose won the Most Valuable Player award in 2011 following his brief but brilliant run with the Chicago Bulls. However, his later years were plagued with injuries that prevented him from being one of the best players in the league.

Despite his on-court brilliance with the New York Knicks in his first duration with the team, Rose was embroiled in a major off-court scandal. He was involved in a legal battle since his girlfriend had accused him of rape. The legal problem overshadowed his professional and personal life.

Derrick Rose opens up about rape allegations

Derrick Rose was accused of raping his then-girlfriend while he was playing for the New York Knicks the first time around. In a recent interview, Rose addressed the charges and categorically denied any misconduct while accusing the lady of lying. He denied that there had been unwanted sexual contact and said that they had been allowed to enter the flat only after she gave her permission.

Rose stated, “She says that we r*ped her, sneaking into her apartment, and running a train on her without her not knowing… drugged. It was so far from the truth. You let us into the apartment, we went in one at a time, it was so far from a f**king train. She went and told the story, lied about it, and by the end of it, she owed some bread from it… If anything, she owed me $20,000-30,000 after the court case.”

Derrick has not been charged with any wrongdoing this time, but it remains to be seen how his ex-girlfriend will react to his version of the event. Undoubtedly, Rose’s life and career have been greatly affected by this issue, and the public continues to follow developments with great interest.

Grizzlies, Derrick Rose agree to 2-year, $6.5 million contract

During this off-season, there have been many trades and one of them was of Derrick Rose. He has signed a two-year, $6.5 million contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. Rose was picked first overall in 2008 after playing college basketball for the Memphis Tigers. The Grizzlies look at him as a leader in the locker room and a key contributor on the floor.

The 34-year-old point guard played in 27 games for the New York Knicks last season, averaging 5.6 pts, 1.7 asts, and 1.5 rebs. Since Ja Morant was suspended for 25 games, his signing was necessary. The Grizzlies sent Tyus Jones to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Rose and Marcus Smart, the reigning defensive player of the year.
