LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A model claims that she feared for her life during a wild night with Los Angeles-native boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya.
Those allegations are at the heart of a civil lawsuit filed in New York. Angelica Cecora, 25, is suing the 38-year-old boxing champ, seeking $5 million for emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery.READ MORE: LA County COVID-19 Hospitalizations Nearly Quadruple In One Month
De La Hoya did not appear in court Wednesday for a hearing in which his lawyers asked the judge to throw out the case.
The complaint says Cecora and De La Hoya had consensual sex in March 2011, according to Reuters. De La Hoya then ordered around $300 worth of cocaine to be delivered to his room, the complaint said.READ MORE: Simone Biles Wins Bronze In Balance Beam After Withdrawing From Other Tokyo Olympics Events
Cecora told reporters his strange behavior and sexual requests afterward were against her will.
“Oscar came off as a nice genuine person when I met him,” Cecora said outside the courthouse Wednesday as her lawyer stood by her side. “As the night proceeded, um, he started to get a little bit out of control. Things took a wild turn that they shouldn’t have, that I didn’t sign up for. Oscar took advantage of me in every way possible.”MORE NEWS: Public Health Officials Lift Warnings For Certain LA County Beaches
