UPDATE 9/22/15: Ross released a statement to TMZ regarding this situation where he says he's not directly involved in the matter and that James is an independent contractor that works with him often. Read the full statement below.
"It has been brought to my attention that serious allegations have been made against an independent contractor, who's services I use often. And while I am not directly involved or implicated, as a man and a father, I take this very seriously. I don't believe any woman's safety should be compromised and she should never be forced to do anything outside of her will, regardless of the circumstances." Ross adds, "While I personally have no knowledge of the specifics surrounding these allegations, it is my hope that this is rectified quickly and with sensitivity."
Rick Ross is reportedly being sued by a woman who says she was raped and drugged by members of his entourage during Grammy weekend. According to TMZ, the woman claims that she met up with Ross and his entourage at the W Hotel in Los Angeles and proceeded to have one drink before she felt dizzy and eventually passed out in his van. The report states that she woke up two hours later in the back of the van and then went with Ross' associate and agent, Thaddeus "Black" James, to his hotel room where she then passed out again, only to wake up in the room the next morning with her clothes off.
The woman is directly suing James, but names Ross in the lawsuit because she claims he should have been supervising Black that night. Ross has yet to comment on these serious allegations as of now, but we will continue to update when details emerge.
