Promoter De La Hoya Says Lawsuit Assertions Are “Completely False”



Promoter De La Hoya Says Lawsuit Assertions Are “Completely False”

Hall of Fame fighter and current big-shot promoter Oscar De La Hoya is in the news, because a suit is in play which contains spicy allegations against the 46 year old California resident.

TMZ reported that a woman referred to in court filings as “Jane Doe” told authorities she and Oscar had a consensual relationship, which included sexual relations. She shared that in November 2017, during a session which included the presence of various intoxicants, she suffered bodily and mental injury because of an undesired act was performed upon her.

De La Hoya released on Tuesday morning a release in which he declares his innocent. In the statement, another suit is referred to. That has to do with a contention made by hype-man/radio host Tattoo, who is alleging that De La Hoya caused him duress by asking him to do personal favors for him.

LOS ANGELES, CA. (Oct. 22 2019): A frivolous lawsuit was filed recently alleging that Oscar De La Hoya sexually assaulted ‘Jane Doe,' which is completely false. Oscar is a very successful businessman, running one of the country's leading sports and entertainment companies – thus a prime target. It is worth noting that both recent lawsuits have been filed by the same attorney who is looking to make a name for himself. We vehemently deny these allegations and look forward to vigorously defending Oscar's good name and reputation.
