Veronica is a writer and feminist from Chicago. (southside!) She divides her time between Twitter, Walking Dead, day parties, the Chicago Bulls, Dawson's Creek and reading damn good writing. Veronica's favorite writing quote is: Without a pen I feel naked but it's writing that is my exhibitionism. She will also work for chips & guac.
According to TMZ, the woman only identified as Jane Doe, claims that she dated Rose from 2011 – 2013. During this time, she alleges that Rose tried to pressure her into engaging in sexual acts that she refused to do. She continued to date Derrick until August 2013, when she says she was drugged at Rose’s Beverly Hills home. She escaped with her friend but claims Rose and his friends broke into her home and raped her.
The woman said she waited two years to come forward because she was ashamed and embarrassed of the assault and didn’t want her family to find out. She is seeking unspecified damages.
“The plaintiff’s allegations are completely false and without any factual basis. This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete. Mr. Rose was in a non-exclusive, consensual sexual relationship with the plaintiff for over two years. The plaintiff expressed no complaints about Mr. Rose until various lawyers began to surface and demand that the plaintiff be paid millions of dollars. This is the third lawyer the plaintiff has retained in this matter. Two years have passed since Mr. Rose ended the consensual relationship with the plaintiff and her claims are as meritless now as they were two years ago. We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous.”
