Derrick Rose fans defend the Chicago Bulls star in the 'drugging and gang-raping' case.Reuters

Did Derrick Rose actually drug and gang-rape his ex-girlfriend? Well, this is the question haunting all Chicago Bulls fans. The NBA superstar has been sued by his ex, who claims that the basketball player and his friends 'drugged and gang-raped' her, according to a TMZ report.

A woman named Jane Doe claimed that she dated Rose from 2011 to 2013. And it was during this period that Derrick allegedly pressurised her to masturbate in front of him and allow him to have sex with her friends too. The player apparently wanted her to engage in group sex with strangers, which she refused to do.

The accuser reportedly also narrated what actually happened. She claimed that Rose and his two friends — Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton (Derrick's personal manager) — invited her to the player's Beverly Hills, California house where they drugged her with the intention of raping her.

She said that she managed to escape from the house, but later that night, the three men broke into her apartment and 'gang-raped' her. She reportedly also mentioned that she only remembers flashes of the incident, but can't recall them raping her.

Well, you might be thinking why the woman has come out with this shocking revelation two years after the incident occurred. Doe claimed that she waited because she was 'ashamed and embarrassed' and didn't want her conservative family to find out about the incident. 

The website also said that the woman is asking for unspecified damages and that they are trying to reach out to Rose's attorney.

Meanwhile, Deadspin has got the copy of the lawsuit that describes the sequence of the events, as given below:

"Rose's accuser says the two continued to date until August 2013, when Rose and two friends, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton (who is also Rose's personal manager), invited her to Rose's Beverly Hills house. She says there, they slipped a drug into her drink with the aim of raping her.

The plaintiff says she escaped the house with a friend, but later that night, Rose and his friends broke into her apartment and gang raped her while she was incapacitated. She says she remembers only "flashes" of the incident, but can remember the defendants forcibly raping her."

But Derrick Rose's fans have stood by their superstar.
