Darren Sharper

My Rape Accuser Is Lying

I've Got Video Proof

Darren Sharper's camp has finally broken its silence on the sexual assault investigation in New Orleans ... telling TMZ Sports the former NFL star DID NOT rape anyone and there's video that backs him up. 

Sharper is being investigated in N.O. after a woman filed a police report back in September claiming Darren picked her up at a bar (after she consumed a "large amount" of alcohol) and had sex with her against her will.

Now, Sharper's legal team tells TMZ Sports ... "There were numerous witnesses who observed the [accuser] on her own and also observed her after encountering Sharper."

Team Sharper says ... the witnesses say the accuser was "following him willingly throughout the evening" and claims surveillance footage syncs up with the witness accounts.

Sharper's lawyers say the video has been turned over to investigators.

"No evidence suggests or implies that a sexual assault occurred," Sharper's lawyer says.

So far, New Orleans officials have not charged Sharper with a crime -- and his lawyers say it's because they've evaluated the evidence and have decided there's not a strong case against him.

Sharper is still facing charges in L.A. -- where 2 other women claim they were raped by Sharper in his hotel room on two different nights.

Rape has become a device used by sluts to feel less slutty by after the fact claiming they didn't want to do it. if you really got raped you'd probably be calling the police right after and going to a hospital right after! I hate sluts

The video or tape of her walking around coherent on her own will shows she was not as intoxicated as she claims for the intercourse to not be consensual
