NBA star Nick Young is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her, but law enforcement sources tell TMZ … when she went to cops with the allegations, they dismissed them as bogus.
As we previously reported, the woman claims Nick — a member of the Philadelphia 76ers — slipped a date rape drug into her drink at a Hollywood bar in 2011, took her to his home and raped her vaginally and anally.
She’s filed a civil lawsuit, but now we’re learning shortly after the alleged incident, she went to LAPD cops who dismissed her claim because her story didn’t make sense. What’s more … law enforcement says at the time she went to cops, she was already talking about a lawsuit, and that made them even more suspicious.
We’re told the woman subsequently made financial demands on Nick — to either pay up or face a lawsuit.
