(ANSA) - NEW YORK, JAN 24 - A woman in New York State has filed a civil lawsuit against Mike Tyson, accusing the former boxing champion of raping her in a limousine in the early 1990s, court documents attest.


    The woman, who asked the court to remain anonymous, filed her complaint in early January under a temporary New York State law that allows victims of sexual assault to seek civil damages regardless of the statute of limitations.


    Tyson spent three years in prison starting in 1992 after being found guilty of raping model Desiree Washington, who was 18 at the time.

In a brief affidavit dated December 23, 2022, the plaintiff says she met the boxer at a nightclub "in the early 1990s," then followed him into her limousine, where he allegedly assaulted her before raping her.

"As a result of Tyson's rape, I have suffered and continue to suffer from physical, psychological and emotional injuries," he said.

He is seeking $5 million in damages.


    Born in Brooklyn in 1966, Tyson had a turbulent childhood before becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion in the 1980s, terrifying his opponents with his in-ring fury and phenomenal punching power.

But after his prison term, he could not keep his titles.

In an infamous 1996 fight, Tyson bit off a chunk of his opponent Evander Holyfield's ear.

Riven by depression and addiction, he continued to make headlines, most notably for a one-man show in which he detailed the many ups and downs of his life.

He recently jumped into the cannabis industry with his own brand of marijuana products.
