NEW YORK (AP) – A woman has accused former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson of raping her sometime in the early 1990s in a lawsuit filed in Albany, New York.
The woman is suing for $5 million.
She said Tyson raped her in a limousine after she met him at an Albany nightclub and that she has suffered from “physical, psychological and emotional injury” in the years since then. T
he lawsuit was filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act.
The act gives sexual assault victims a one-year window to file lawsuits over assaults from years ago.
A message seeking comment from Tyson was sent to an agency that has represented him.
