Jose Canseco's Ex-GF

Calls BS on Rape Accuser

Jose Canseco's ex-GF tells TMZ ... she believes J.C. is COMPLETELY INNOCENT ... and claims the woman accusing the former MLB star of rape is nothing more than a lying publicity whore.

We spoke to Leila Knight -- who dated Canseco for more than 4 years -- and she tells us she's spoken with Canseco at length about the sexual assault accusations that have been made against him in Las Vegas.

"I've been talking to him all day ... it's obvious that it's a publicity stunt, I mean -- the girl's an aspiring actress," Knight says.

Knight also says Canseco is a "gentle person" who always tells the truth -- "If anything, he's too honest."

For his part, Canseco has denied any wrongdoing ... despite the fact he's named as a suspect in a sexual assault investigation stemming from an alleged incident on May 10.

It's a publicity stunt by the alleged victim when he's the one who started tweeting about it and named her as well as gave out her phone # and her work address to millions of people? Is his ex as addled as he is?

Also, the rape was in Vegas, so.. "Nevada law creates a civil action for damages for the disclosure of confidential information regarding a sexual assault victim." <--she can sue him for whatever grease and spare change he may have lying around.
