Rosey Grier

NFL Legend Accused of Sexual Assault

'He Exposed Himself'

4/1/2014 5:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosey Grier Sexual AssaultNFL legend Rosey Grier is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting his female neighbor -- who claims the 81-year-old shoved his hands down her pants and groped her genitals ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports

Grier -- who was a member of the notorious "Fearsome Foursome" defense on the L.A. Rams -- is being sued by Jana Young ... a neighbor who claims she also served as Rosey's manager. 

Young -- who's married -- claims she allowed Grier to move into her home while his house was under construction ... and that's when things got weird. 

According to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Young claims while Grier was staying in her home, he "purposefully exposed himself, completely nude, to Young without her consent."

Young says he then asked her, "How do you like it?"

In the suit, Young says she immediately kicked Grier out of her house -- but things got even weirder. 

Young claims she later went over to Grier's house to collect money he owed her for work she did as his manager and for cash she fronted for his home remodel. 

But when she confronted Grier, the football player (who later became an ordained Christian minister), Jana claims he shoved his hand into her pants and told her, "You feel like a virgin."

Young claims she immediately ran home. Unclear if she ever filed a police report. 

Attempts to contact Grier were unsuccessful. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

I call B.S. If he really said she felt like a virgin that means he had time to root around down there and she didn't fight back. So either a) she led him on or b) she's lying.

BS, why would you go to someone's house who has exposed himself to you, sexually harassed you ... to collect money he owes you? I'll be shocked if there is a police report... it was right to a lawyer to sue no concern at all that there is a sexual predator living next door so long as she gets her check.

At 81 he could possibly have dementia so this behavior is not unusual. Dementia patients do some crazy stuff.

I smell BullS**t

Grier has been nothing but a positive contributing person, from getting the poor into houses and training, to being a pastor since, I guess the late 80's
All the movies and tv everyone always had just good to say about the man.

Yet, it's open till we know for sure.

Yet, if she'd 'already' kicked him out of her house for 'that', then 'why' go over to his house asking for things?
If you owes you, you send him certified or sue.

Smells fishy and... don't seem to be coming from him.

Ok so she knew what was on his mind. Why would she go over there alone? Why continue ANY contact with him? Why not call 911 on the spot and sue his azz for whatever is owed plus assault charges? How or Why would she allow him to get in close enough for physical contact? Why would she front him remodel $$ if he owed her as a manager?

I find this very hard to believe. Nobody starts being a sexual predator at 81, unless they're suffering from a brain disorder of some kind. He's never had an incident like this in his past. I think she believed he owes her money, and this is how she's trying to get it.

Find this hard to believe but u never know. Only those two know the real truth.

Here they come!! "He'd NEVER do that!" "She shouldn't leave her house alone, she's a women!" "All women want to get raped!" Oh, little products of incest gathered around their mom's computers, blaming rape and molestation victims. It's the good ol' conservative merican way.
