Conor McGregor is Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Woman After the NBA Finals
According to demand letters sent by her lawyer, a lady claims that UFC fighter Conor McGregor sexually attacked her after Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Miami on June 9.
The claims have been refuted by McGregor.
When questioned about the claims, Miami police said they are looking into a report that was submitted but did not offer any other information.
The lady’s attorney writes in a letter to McGregor that McGregor is charged with multiple felonies, including sexually assaulting and battering an unnamed woman in a VIP men’s restroom at the Kaseya Center where the game took place. The letter further alleges that McGregor abducted the woman and caused her emotional distress.
“The allegations are false,” McGregor’s reps told Gossip World News in a statement. Mr. McGregor won’t be deterred.
The Miami Heat, the Kaseya Center, and the NBA have all received separate letters from the attorney accusing them of being complicit in the alleged sexual assault and violence, as well as aiding and abetting the purported kidnapping.
The letters demand that any videos, photos, and other potential evidence be preserved by McGregor, the Kaseya Center, the NBA, and the Miami Heat organization.
In a statement to Gossip World News on Thursday, NBA spokesman Mike Bass said: “We are aware of the allegations and are working with the team to gather more information.”
When contacted by Gossip World News, Miami police said that they are looking into a complaint that was submitted on June 11.
According to police spokesperson Michael Vega, “This is an open investigation, so no additional information can be released at this time.”
The Miami Heat confirmed being aware of the claims but said they would hold off on responding until the results of their inquiry.
According to The Athletic, during the same game, McGregor struck the Miami Heat mascot twice during a mid-game act. As a result, the performer dressed as the mascot was taken to the hospital and given painkillers before being released home.
Officials from the UFC said in a statement: “The company is aware of the new claims against Conor McGregor and will continue to gather more information about the incident. Before making any further remarks, UFC will wait for the legal process to conclude.
Neither a lawsuit nor an arrest has been made in relation to the matter.
Since injuring his left leg during a bout with Dustin Poirier in July 2021, McGregor has not participated in a UFC event.
After defeating the Heat in Game 4, the Denver Nuggets went on to capture the NBA championship in Game 5 on Monday in Denver.
