Family member sues George Foreman for sexual abuse of minor
According to the Daily Mail, former heavyweight champion George Foreman is being sued by a third woman who claims he molested her as a child.
Gwen Hunter and Denise Shipes recently made similar accusations against Foreman. In contrast to the two prior lawsuits, in which the plaintiffs were both 13, the current plaintiff, who is also connected to Foreman, claims that she was 15 at the time the events occurred.
Foreman would have been 24 years old in 1974 when the reported events took place at his property in Livermore, California. According to the complaint, the claimed victim moved from Houston to Livermore in order to help raise the ex-boxer’s son.
The statement claims that once Foreman arrived at the plaintiff’s house, he “began to ask her sexually explicit questions,” to which the woman responded that she “had no experience” and thus declined his proposition. ‘Big George’ “began to proposition her with money in exchange for him sexually penetrating her,” claims the now 64-year-old unidentified plaintiff, ‘Big George,’ who also “stated that while penetrating her he wanted to climax inside of her.”
She goes on to say that the ex-champion raped her. “After DOE 1 completed the sexual assault, Plaintiff was left in terror, and could not comprehend what had just happened to her. Because the incident involved a family member, Plaintiff had not [sic] one to turn to, and was in complete fear of what would happen to her if she said anything,”
