Rick Ross sued after implicated in rape allegations

Rick Ross has been implicated in a rape case, despite the fact he was not directly involved, and it is not alleged that he had anything to do with the physical rape. The woman, who is identified as Jane Doe, claims that she was raped by Rick Ross’ associate Thaddeus ‘Black’ James on the Grammy’s weekend.

Ross and his crew allegedly gave a ride to the woman after they invited her to a weed convention called the Cannabis Cup. She was then apparently given a drink that made her feel dizzy, and she woke up a few hours later with James still in the car. She then went back to James’ house and passed out again, where she believes James assaulted her, realising after waking up the next morning with her clothes removed and some memories of the night.

Without further details, it seems slightly odd that Rick Ross is being sued for the allegations, although he is implicated as he rode in the van and James worked for him. Currently, Ross is on bail for aggravated assault and kidnapping charges.

Rick Ross has since responded to the allegations:

“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.”

This isn’t the first time Ross has been involved in a rape controversy. Last year he came under fire for the lyrics “Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it,” in the song “U.O.E.N.O.

Despite multiple apologies, he lost his deal with Reebok and likely a swathe of fans.
