Kristaps Porzingis Accused Of Rape, FBI Investigating ‘The Accuser’s Extortionate Demands’

Porzingis was traded to the Dallas Mavericks on January 31.

Hours earlier, Porzingis had suffered a torn knee ligament while playing for the Knicks.

"We have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment", Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wrote in an email to the Post.

Kristaps Porzingis attends an Oklahoma City Thunder vs. She accuses Porzingis of holding her down and raping her, according to a Post source, after she accepted his invitation to his apartment in the Sky building in Midtown West after 2 a.m.

The woman made her stunning allegation against the 23-year-old player on Thursday afternoon - and investigators consider her credible, one high-ranking NYPD source told The Post.

The alleged attack happened February 7, 2018 at the soaring Sky building in Midtown West, the woman told cops at the 10th Precinct stationhouse, the sources told The Post.

It remains to be seen what steps are taken next as the investigation remains ongoing. The Post said Cuban copied the email to National Basketball Association officials and Porzingis' representatives.

"The woman - who is in her 20s and also lived in the building - told cops the National Basketball Association star visited her apartment at around 2 a.m., and that she accepted his invitation to go back to his [penthouse]".

The case is now being handled by the NYPD Special Victims unit.

She told cops Porzingis promised to give her $68,000 to pay for her brother's college tuition, but then reneged, the sources said. We made a formal referral to federal law enforcement on December 20th, 2018, based on the accuser's extortionate demands.

According to an ESPN report, which cited unidentified league sources, in a call finalizing the trade, NY informed Dallas of the rape allegation.

But he's not expected to play with the team till next season while he recovers from the injury.
