Former New York Knicks star, Kristaps Porzingis, is currently being investigated for rape.
The woman claims Porzingis invited her to his Manhattan penthouse on February 7, 2018 — just hours after he tore his ACL in a game at the Garden against the Bucks — and held her down and raped her.
According to the New York Post … the woman — who’s in her 20s and lived in the same building as Porzingis — reported the rape to police Thursday … and The Post claims investigators consider her story to be credible.
The accuser reportedly told cops Porzingis promised to give her $68,000 in hush money to pay for her brother’s college tuition, but then reneged … which is why she waited to report the alleged sexual assault.
5:55 PM PT — Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the alleged victim told cops Porzingis pinned her down on a bed in his guest room, penetrated her vagina with his penis and then got violent.
The woman told cops he hit her in the face several times, spit on her, called her “my bitch” and “my slave” and said he owned her. We’re told the accuser claims he stopped assaulting her as she was putting up a fight.
TMZ has reached out to Porzingis’ camp, and have not received any word back so far.
