LOS ANGELES (AP):A woman who accuses Derrick Rose and two friends of gang rape in a $21.5 million lawsuit became emotional yesterday after the NBA star entered the courtroom for the first time as she testified about how intoxicated she was on the night in question.”I’ve never felt like that before,” the 30-year-old said. “I just felt I was less in control, more goofy.”As she began to connect a night of drinking at Rose’s Beverly Hills mansion on August 26, 2013, with the disputed incident in the early morning at her apartment, there was a long pause as she wept quietly, hiding her face behind a computer screen on the witness stand.During a break with the jury out of the courtroom, defence lawyer Michael Monico complained that they couldn’t have her “crying all day” and suggested the judge issue a “no crying” order.US District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald said he’d never heard of such an order and said the defence was welcome to mock her later or say the crying was ridiculous.”I’m not going to order the witness not to cry any more than I’m going to order her not to breathe,” Fitzgerald said.Rose, 28, and his friends Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton have denied the accusations in the lawsuit.
