A woman is suing Philadelphia 76ers star Nick Young for sexual assault — claiming he roofied her back in 2011 … then raped her vaginally and anally.

According to the suit, the woman’s recollection of the evening ceased shortly after she downed the drink … and she believes it’s because Young had slipped the date rape drug gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) into it.

The woman claims she woke up the next morning in Young’s bed, bleeding from her vagina and rectum.

She says Young admitted to having sex with her the night before, but claimed he stopped because she passed out.

According to the suit, the woman demanded to be taken home by Young — he obliged — and she beelined for the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, where she took a rape kit and was tested for STDs. She claims a test at the center confirmed she had been drugged, and determined the injuries to her vagina and rectum were consistent with rape.

So why sue 2 years later? And why sue at all? Why not call the police and file criminal charges? Also, aren't hospitals required by law to report a rape?

I'm a little skeptical about this one.

yeah this sounds highly questionable. i have friends who were friends with nick young when he went to cleveland hs, based on what theyve said about him i'd be really surprised if this was true. aside from that i dont see why anyone in his situation (young millionaire) would need to be slipping random skanks roofies.

unfortunately, I am skeptical about any rape claim when it concerns athletes. THat sucks for women who are raped or have been raped but the truth is too many chicks lie to get paid. The first red flag for me is the "demanded to be taken home" because I rarely have heard a woman who has been sexually assaulted to want to spend 1 minute let alone a car ride with the guy who did it. Also, 2 years? That is a long time for a rape kit to come back. I really hope the kid didn't do it but if he did I hope he gets treated like any other criminal. Only time will tell.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Let's see:

- she gets raped
- asked for a ride home
- no police report
- wait for another 2 years
- also sues the bar ($$$)

Maybe Nick Young had no money 2 years ago or something...

Cases like this are always sensitive, but this one sounds awfully suspicious.

Never discount a rape allegation. This one sounds a little iffy as it's being reported.... but let's wait until we hear the entire story.

If true, it's a terrible thing and Young shouldn't be playing ball for quite a while, but it does sound a little suspicious. On the other hand I've watched a ton of crime shows and sometimes the woman doesn't come forward out of shame, or fear, this guy is rich and will have the best lawyers if it gets that far after all. It also does say she went to the rape treatment center immediately, so while it's taken 2 years to get here, she didn't wait 2 years to do anything about it at all. She could be after money, or it could have really happened, time will tell, maybe.

it wouldn't be completely unheard of for a player to do this and make a "off the record" payoff deal that no one would know about except his lawyer the victim, and the perp. Could be that this is what happened and he didn't make the payment or she wanted more. With celebrities and politicians you never know.... money/power/access can buy a lot of "privilege" that we don't have.

Nick Young is a black hole, but he always seemed like a cool dude going back to his USC days. I hope these allegations are false.

true. reminds of of homeland series last season with the daughter/car accident ordeal for anyone thats seen that.

sometimes right and wrong can be adjusted with money. or even if not guilty, its easier just to pay to get it to go away.

NBA STAR NICK YOUNG
Cops -- Rape Accuser's Story
'CRAZY', 'UNBELIEVABLE'
EXCLUSIVE

NBA star Nick Young is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her, but law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... when she went to cops with the allegations, they dismissed them as bogus.

As we previously reported, the woman claims Nick -- a member of the Philadelphia 76ers -- slipped a date rape drug into her drink at a Hollywood bar in 2011, took her to his home and raped her vaginally and anally.

She's filed a civil lawsuit, but now we're learning shortly after the alleged incident, she went to LAPD cops who dismissed her claim because her story didn't make sense. What's more ... law enforcement says at the time she went to cops, she was already talking about a lawsuit, and that made them even more suspicious.

We're told the woman subsequently made financial demands on Nick -- to either pay up or face a lawsuit.

Get a job you worthless human.

Trying to get paid by claiming rape should be punishable by the same grounds of said crime. You can ruin an innocent life that way.

So that answers the question on why criminal charges weren't filed. If the cops won't even believe her, I'm not sure why a jury would either.

My guess, assuming the allegations aren't true, is that he would rather settle than deal with a trial. Also, the burden of proof is lower in civil court.

If the tests/report from the UCLA clinic are legitimate, there might be a case.

Otherwise, the rest of the details in this story are not supporting her allegations.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.
