Rosey Grier Accused of Sexual Assault

Former manager sues 81-year-old NFL legend, claims he stuck his hands down her pants.

Published April 2, 2014

Sports legend Rosey Grier is being sued for sexual assault by a former manager who claims the retired athlete shoved his hands down her pants and exposed his genitals while staying in her home and sometime thereafter.

The suit alleges that Jana Young opened her doors to Grier while his house was being remodeled but was subjected to inappropriate advances at the hands of her onetime client.

Grier, 81, "purposely exposed himself, completely nude" and asked her, "How do you like it?" legal documents filed with the L.A. County Superior Court state. 

She kicked the senior citizen out of the house after the first incident, which led to another run-in with Grier, this time at his home. Young went to Grier's house to collect money owed for her managerial services, and instead of settling the debt he put his hands inside her pants  and remarked, "You feel like a virgin." Young left the location immediately, but it is not known if she filed a police report.   

Grier is noted as one of the L.A. Rams' infamous "Fearsome Foursome" defensive lineman, and he later became an ordained minster. 

He has not yet commented on Young's allegations.
