The Bulls released a statement early Thursday morning regarding reported allegations against point guard Derrick Rose.
"We just learned about this matter and do not know all the facts. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
A spokesperson for Rose also issued a statement, via Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal.
"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."
