Derrick Rose's Rape Accuser Is Demanding a Lot of Money

New details from lawsuit are revealed.

Published October 28, 2015

The woman accusing Derrick Rose of raping her in 2013 has finally put a price to her lawsuit.

The alleged victim is suing the former NBA MVP and Chicago Bulls star for $21.5 million, as TMZ Sports confirmed with court documents.

The woman says the point guard and two of his friends broke into her Los Angeles apartment, drugged and gang raped her two years ago.

She came to the sum after demanding $15.5 million in punitive damages and $6 million more in compensatory damages.

When news of the alleged rape lawsuit broke in late August, Rose's attorney said it was nothing more than a money-grab attempt.

TMZ says the trial should start late 2017.
