After Angelica Marie Cecora filed a lawsuit against Oscar de la Hoya last week claiming he imprisoned her during "a kinky night of sex and drugs," the boxing legend has fired back. De la Hoyaâ€™s attorney Judd Burstein called Cecora â€œa prostitute and a grifterâ€ and asked a judge to dismiss the complaint.
Cecora accused de la Hoya of emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery after the two hooked up last March, and Burstein's court papers state, "This case is a disgrace. Reduced to its essentials it alleges that [de la Hoya] engaged in [wrongful] conduct because, after he and [Cecora] had engaged in consensual sexual intercourse, he unsuccessfully sought to convince her a few hours later to have sex with him again.â€ The motion asks for sanctions against Cecoraâ€™s lawyers for filing the suit, claiming that she â€œvoluntarily engaged in unusual sexual activitiesâ€ with de la Hoya.
â€œThe allegations pre-date Oscar going to rehab,â€ Burstein told the NY Post. â€œHe has turned his life around in part by publicly taking responsibility for what actually happened in his past. But the idea that he engaged in anything non-consensual is absolutely false. It is not surprising that she will prostitute the truth in order to try to make a quick buck. She just chose the wrong victim because Oscar is not going to allow his past to become a golden ticket for anyone who wants to make up a story.â€
So what does Cecora have to say about this? Her lawyer, Tony Evans, told the Post, â€œTo call [my client] a prostitute and a grifter is the saddest and lowest maneuver possible ... We knew a powerful man would attack her character. We didnâ€™t attack his character. Threatening sanctions is a bullying tactic. And, it only makes me more excited for this case.â€
Hmm, who's side are you on?
