According to reports, Dallas Mavericks seven footer Kristaps Porzingis is being investigated in New York for an alleged rape of his neighbor last year. The incident is alleged to have taken place on the same day he tore his ACL.
The alleged victim claims she waited to report the incident, because she and Porzingis discussed a $68k payment for her silence.
Via NY Post:
Hours after suffering a devastating knee injury at Madison Square Garden last year, former Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis came home and allegedly raped a neighbor he had invited to his luxury Manhattan penthouse, the woman told police, according to law-enforcement sources.
The woman made her stunning allegation against the 23-year-old player on Thursday afternoon — and investigators consider her credible, one high-ranking NYPD source told The Post.
The accuser is “believable,” the source said, even though she did not report the alleged attack until more than a year later and has admitted to cops that she discussed getting $68,000 in hush money from the multimillionaire basketballer.
Whenever there are allegations like this we have to wait for all of the facts to come out, especially when someone has a little bit of money. But this doesn’t look good for the young NBA star.
If there is any evidence at all that the two discussed a payment for her silence, that could seal his fate.
