Former multi-weight champion boxer-turned-promoter Oscar De La Hoya is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in a drug- and alcohol-fueled encounter
The assault which allegedly happened at 46-year-old De La Hoya’s home in Nov. 2017, left the 29-year-old woman physically injured and in emotional distress’, the filing states
The unidentified woman is seeking ‘punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish De La Hoya and deter all others from engaging in similar conduct’
They had an ongoing sexual relationship in 2017 when he invited her to his Pasadena, California home, where he revealed a significant amount of alcohol and what appeared to be cocaine, and proceeded to get intoxicated
He allegedly invited the complainant to his bedroom, during the encounter she says he talked about his fetish for transgender porn and asked if she wanted to ‘experiment’ sexually
The woman claims that after she refused several of his requests for unusual sex, he forcibly held her down and assaulted her as she cried for him to stop
She then left in ‘shock and anger’, and later experienced physical pain and swelling, the alleged victim said
The alleged victim also claims she still suffers from extreme distress, humiliation, indignation and outrage, along with depression, anxiety and related symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder
She is demanding unspecified damages for sexual assault, sexual battery, gender violence, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress
Former world champion boxer-turned-promoter Oscar De La Hoya is being sued by a woman who ha accused him of sexual assault and battery her during a drug- and alcohol -induced encounter in 2017, leaving her with physical injuries and in emotional distress
Retired boxer-turned-promoter Oscar De La Hoya is being sued by a woman claiming he sexually assaulted and battered her during a drug- and alcohol-induced encounter in 2017, leaving her with physical injuries and in emotional distress.
The woman is seeking unspecified damages from the 46-year-old former Olympic gold medalist and six-division world champion.
The woman who filed the suit using the alias “Jane Doe” in her suit, in L.A. County Superior Court, to protect her identity, describes herself as a licensed vocational nurse who met Oscar in 2016.
She admits having an ongoing consensual sexual relationship with the boxer at the time, but says things went awry in Nov. 2017 when he invited her over to check out his new house in Pasadena.
Doe claims Oscar had bottles of alcohol and “a bag of what appeared to be cocaine” in his kitchen when she arrived. She also claimed that it became clear, he was on a mission to get wasted.
Intoxicated, she claims the boxer invited her to the bedroom to hook up — and during the encounter, he asked if she was down to “experiment” sexually.
Since retiring in 2009, De La Hoya has remained one of the largest figures in boxing through his company, Golden Boy Promotion
‘The acts of De La Hoya, as alleged herein, were extreme, outrageous, and beyond all bounds of decency tolerated in a civilized society,’ read the complaint filed in Los Angeles Super Court. ‘Moreover, De La Hoya’s conduct was malicious, oppressive, highly reprehensible and done with the intent to subject Plaintiff to unjust hardship, and as such warrants the imposition of punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish De La Hoya and deter all others from engaging in similar conduct.’
