Despite his popularity, Tyson’s life and career weren’t free of controversies.

The woman filed her documents in Albany, New York this month under the state’s Adult Survivor Act which provides individuals with a one-year window to file lawsuits for assaults that took place years ago.
In her affidavit, she noted to have met the former boxer at a local hotspot at the time called Septembers. She recalls getting into Tyson’s limo to pick up her friend when the alleged incident took place.
“I got in Tyson’s limousine to pick up my friend from her house,” she alleged in the court docs.
She then mentioned that she asked Tyson several times to stop but he continued the alleged assault and “violently raped” her.
“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,” the plaintiff claimed.
She stated that the incident left her grappling with feelings of worthlessness, shame, embarrassment, and perpetual sadness. She also claimed that the alleged assault affected her experience with relationships.
“I have experienced extreme emotional suffering including but not limited to nightmares, panic attacks and flashbacks,” the woman alleged, per her filing.
