76ers Nick Young Sued For Rape.
The 76ers Nick Young is being sued for allegedly drugging and raping a woman.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Lets make sure all the facts add up on this one before we start throwing around guilt.
Trouble just seems to follow some people around. Nick Young is definitely one of those people. He’s already very familiar with the limelight associated with fame in a negative way and has had his name associated with hookers and groupie drama in the past. This time the stakes are even higher as he’s being accused of both drugging a young woman and raping her vaginally and anally.
Before we assume he is guilty of anything, lets make let the evidence come forward because this story already has some significant holes. The big questions involving this lawsuit are why didn’t she go to the police and why did she wait so long to come forward. TMZ broke the story, so clearly this is still in the real of gossip and rumor, but here’s what TMZ broke below:
A woman is suing Philadelphia 76ers star Nick Young for sexual assault — claiming he roofied her back in 2011 … then raped her vaginally and anally.
According to the suit, the woman’s recollection of the evening ceased shortly after she downed the drink … and she believes it’s because Young had slipped the date rape drug gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) into it.
The woman claims she woke up the next morning in Young’s bed, bleeding from her vagina and rectum.
She says Young admitted to having sex with her the night before, but claimed he stopped because she passed out.
According to the suit, the woman demanded to be taken home by Young — he obliged — and she beelined for the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, where she took a rape kit and was tested for STDs. She claims a test at the center confirmed she had been drugged, and determined the injuries to her vagina and rectum were consistent with rape.
