Derrick Rose's Lawyers Demanded What From His Rape Accuser?

This is one strange... and nasty request.

Published April 18, 2016

Just when you think you've heard it all, there's this news in the Derrick Rose rape allegation.

According to TMZ Sports, the Chicago Bulls' star point guard issued his rape accuser a list of demands before her deposition. One of those demands was turning in the used condoms from the night she claimed to be gang raped.

Wait... what?

TMZ learned that during a deposition preparation this past January that Rose's attorneys actually filed a request for case materials, including photographs, emails, text-messages and "any and all condoms that you retained as evidence from after the alleged rape."

Lawd! The craziest thing about the request is that the original allegation that Rose and two of his friends drugged and gang raped her stemmed from an alleged August 2013 incident, meaning that any kept condoms would be nearly three-years-old by now.

Rose's accuser is suing for upwards of $20 million.

Shortly after the accusation hit the news last August, Rose said it was untruthful, with his lawyer, Lisa Cohen, adding at the time that the allegations are "completely false and without any factual basis" and that "we have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed."
