Derrick Rose Put a Muzzle On My Accuser

9/23/2016 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-derrick-rose-getty-02Derrick Rose's rape accuser won't be holding any more news conferences if he gets his way ... he's asking a judge to shut her up.

Rose just filed a motion requesting the anonymous accuser be prohibited from speaking about the case with anyone in the media until the end of the trial. He's pissed about what he calls her "nationwide media blitz," and feels it's hurting his ability to get a fair trial.

As we reported ... the accuser and her lawyer held a teleconference with reporters last week, during which they called Rose a "sexual deviant." 

The judge has yet to rule on the gag order.

Derrick Rose to Rape Accuser You're No Prude You Hooked Up With Nick Young

9/12/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0907-nick-young-derrick-rose-TMZ-01Derrick Rose is dragging Nick Young into his alleged rape case -- using his fellow NBA star in an attempt to discredit the accuser.

Rose's Jane Doe accuser claims she was traumatized by the alleged gang rape because she's "prudish" and sexually inexperienced. Rose's team says that's a big fat lie ... and they have a text referring to fellow NBA guard Nick Young to prove it.

According to docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the text was sent from Jane Doe to her roommate in November 2014. It says, "since u goin to nicks can u please tell him to give u my bra lol."

Rose says the roommate confirmed ... Jane Doe was referring to Nick Young in the text (and yes, Nick was dating Iggy at the time). 

The docs also claim Jane Doe interacted with lots of celebs and had sexual relationships with at least 2 NBA players other than Rose ... bringing a major question about her credibility into play.

We reached out to Nick Young ... he has no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

Sorry, Spike ... hip-hop star Fat Joe is officially the biggest freakin' Knicks fan in the world ... 'cause he says he'd give up FIVE MILLION DOLLARS if it meant his squad could take home the Larry O'Brien. 

We got Joe out in NYC and posed a very simple, very easy question of choice to the rap legend ... would he rather have the Knicks win a championship ... or be handed $5 million in cold hard cash?

Joe doesn't even hesitate ... dissing the cash (FYI, he's already maaaaaad rich) and taking the title, thus proving how much an NBA championship actually means ... no matter what 'Melo says.

A real man can admit when he's wrong -- and Fabolous says he was WAY OFF when he predicted doom for the Knicks when they drafted Kristaps Porzingis

But that was before KP killed it in his rookie season.

Good news for Knicks fans -- Spike Lee seems pretty optimistic about signing Joakim Noah

Bad news for Knicks fans -- He's not too confident about Kevin Durant

But when we brought the other star on the team -- Kristaps Porzingis -- Mr. Rhymes didn't seem too enthused about the Latvian sensation.
