There are new developments in the case against Derrick Rose after he and his friends allegedly gang raped a woman inside of her apartment. We've also learned the NBA star suffered another injury during practice today! Get the latest inside…
We have new developments in the gang rape case against Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose. A few weeks ago, we told you an anonymous woman who we’ll call “Jane Doe” filed a lawsuit against the NBA baller accusing him and his friends. She alleged that in 2013 they drugged her, broke into her L.A. apartment and then gang raped her while she was passed out.
The Bulls' star has presumed his innocence releasing a statement to refute the claims, and now he's filing legal docs in his defense. Derrick claims she's telling a lie and that she gave them consent to have sex. Matter of fact, she was one who allegedly buzzed them into her apartment to do so. TMZ got a hold of new court documents filed by Derrick that claim “Jane Doe” consented to sexual interactions on the day in question AND she also invited the defendants into her apartment.
The court docs also reveal the alleged victim met up with a friend the next day for a cup of coffee and went to work for a full shift. He’s hoping this would prove that she wasn’t victimized like she claims, despite the fact that rape victims all handle the situation differently
Oh…and get this. Derrick even offers up an interesting reason as to WHY she decided to press charges. He reportedly did not reimburse her for one of the sex toys used that night and he started ignoring her texts. He believes this set her off and caused her to take legal action.
She’s seeking unspecified damages.
Meanwhile, Derrick doesn’t seem to be letting this situation get to him. He’s still active on his social media accounts. Last week, he was spotted attending/supporting his baby's mother Mieka during New York Fashion Week along with their son PJ.

More bad news for Derrick Rose!
The point guard has suffered yet another injury on the court today that will require surgery. And there’s not an inkling as to when he’ll return to the court.
During the first day of training camp, Derrick was struck in the face by an elbow, which resulted in a left orbital fracture. It's rumored Bulls power forward Taj Gibson may have been the one who caused the injury. Yikes. Derrick is expected to undergo surgery tomorrow morning.
ESPN breaks down Derrick's lengthy injury record, reporting:
A timetable for his return will not be known until after the surgery, the Bulls said. They will provide an update at that time. The orbital fracture is the latest in a long line of health issues for the 2010-11 MVP. He tore the ACL in his left knee in April 2012 and missed the 2012-13 season.
He then tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and missed the rest of the 2013-14 season. Rose also had a meniscectomy on his right knee in February and missed 31 regular-season games during the 2014-15 season. In total, Rose has played in just 100 regular-season games since the beginning of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.
Totally not his year.
