NBA Star Nick Young

Cops -- Rape Accuser's Story

'Crazy', 'Unbelievable'

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.

She had a rape kit done, right? I'll wait for the medical facts to be released.

Even if she was talking about a lawsuit right away, didn't you say she went to the hospital right after he dropped her off and got a rape kit and the drugs were found in her system? We need more info.

More info IS needed...BUT some things do NOT make sense. Why on earth would you have the person who supposedly raped you to drive you home? Where are the medical reports....and IF they exist, WHY did it take from 2011 to 2013- almost two years later for her to even file a case? A CIVIL case at that! Rape is no light subject and for the sake of REAL rape victims being taken seriously, if she is lying- which it sounds like she is- she needs to cut it out.

LAPD love to be judge, jury and executioner BEFORE they even investigate. Can't get a report or visit since I moved here and I'm from NYC, not podunk.

Tell him next time he needs to wet his whistle, just get a hooker. Less hassle. Even if she has the drug in her system, she could have went to ladies room and took it herself. Sounds like planned extortion.

Something just doesn't add up. Hospitals / Dr.'s are required by law to report rapes, domestic violence, battery, etc.. Obviously the police didn't think rape was the case, or he would have been charged with a crime.

Ok if he raped her how much she thinks she's getting this kid doesn't make a lot of money, if he did it then pay the consequences if she's lying she should get in trouble as well. U have to b careful there's bad people who only r after one thing UR MONEY, TO DESTROY U!

TMZ...not all that play in the NBA are "stars." You keep calling players NBA stars even if they are really not. Kobe is a star, so is Lebron, Durant, Melo. This guy is not a star. I hope you finally get the difference.
