Darren Sharper's Ex-GF

He Was A Perfect Gentleman

I Never Saw Anything Suspicious

3/7/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Darren Sharper's ex-girlfriend -- a woman who dated the ex-NFLer for nearly a year -- tells TMZ Sports she was "completely shocked" by the rape allegations ... saying, "It's the opposite of the guy I knew."

The woman, who asked not to be named in this post, told us Sharper was not a booze-obsessed, drink-spiking maniac during their time together.

In fact,  the woman says, "He didn't want me to drink. Never offered me drugs. He was really concerned with how I was around him."

"I've seen him help people. We went to a charity event together. He was egotistical, but the guy that I know is not like [the way he's been described in police reports]."

The woman tells us she found it "weird" when she heard about the allegations against Sharper in 5 states because "most women who would ask me about him would drop their drawers for him in a second."

Sharper's ex says Darren did some research on her before they started dating -- trying to get as much info on her as possible -- but only to make sure she wasn't a "crazy girl."

As for the current allegations, the woman says, "I'm hoping for his children's sake it's not true. I don't want to see him leave that type of legacy for his children."

No telling what is truth or lies about ANYONE these days. You NEVER really know who people are, not even your own kids(see Menendez Brothers) let alone Darren Sharper. I hope this isnt true about him rapping woman, great football player and I thought a guy who NEVER had issues getting woman. NOw that I think of it, its insulting to say he has no issues with getting woman because it implies I think certain men do, and I apologize for that. That said, I hope the truth comes out and those who were raped get the truth told and etc.!! LGNM
