Mike Tyson accused of raping woman, sued to pay $5 million

Mike Tyson has been accused by a woman who claimed she met the former professional boxer after a night out at a New York dance club in the early 1990s and the boxer raped her.

An unnamed woman claimed in an affidavit submitted on January 5 in Albany County Court, New York, stated: "I met Mike Tyson in the early 1990s at a dance club called Septembers. My friend and I were hanging out with him and his limousine driver. Tyson told us about a party and asked us to join him. My friend was going to drop off her car, and Tyson said he would pick her up in the limousine."

As per the affidavit findings, the woman then got into the former boxer’s vehicle and was unwantedly touched by him.

"I told him no several times and asked him to stop, but he continued to attack me. He then pulled my pants off and violently raped me," her statement resumed.

The court documents noted that the women accused the boxer with $5million in damages that include "physical, psychological, and emotional injury."

A case has already been filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which governor Kathy Hochul signed into last two year.

Under the regulation, "a one-year lookback window" is given to "survivors of sexual assault that occurred when they were over the age of 18 to sue their abusers regardless of when the abuse occurred."

Since then any statement from Tyson, 56, has not been surfaced yet.
