Rick Ross released a statement to TMZ regarding this rape situation where he says he’s not directly involved in the matter and that James is an independent contractor that works with him often. Read the full statement below:
“It has been brought to my attention that serious allegations have been made against an independent contractor, who’s services I use often. And while I am not directly involved or implicated, as a man and a father, I take this very seriously. I don’t believe any woman’s safety should be compromised and she should never be forced to do anything outside of her will, regardless of the circumstances. While I personally have no knowledge of the specifics surrounding these allegations, it is my hope that this is rectified quickly and with sensitivity.”
Rick Ross is reportedly being sued by a woman who claims she was raped and drugged by members of his entourage during Grammy weekend. The woman is says she met up with the crew at the W Hotel in LA and only had one drink before feeling dizzy and knocking out in his van. The report says she woke up two hours later in the back of the van and then went with Thaddeus “Black” James, to his hotel room where she passed out again. The next thing she remembers is waking up in the room the next morning with her clothes off.
The woman is directly suing James, but name drops Ross in the lawsuit because she claims he should have been watching Black that night.
