Burstein: Dismissal is Expected in De La Hoya Sex Suit

NEW YORK - A Playboy model said on Wednesday she feared for her life while trapped in a luxury hotel room with former world champion Oscar De La Hoya, 38, during a night of drugs and kinky sex. Angelica Cecora, 25, in a lawsuit filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, accused the former Olympic gold medalist and current president of Golden Boy Promotions of dressing in women's underwear while trying to force her to engage in sexual acts in March 2011.

Cecora spoke to reporters outside a court hearing during which De La Hoya's lawyers asked to dismiss the lawsuit, which seeks $5 million for emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery.

"Once 12 o'clock hit that night, he just started doing more and more drugs and wanted me to do more and more things," she said.

De La Hoya did not appear in court Wednesday but after the hearing his attorney Judd Burstein said the encounter was consensual and he's confident the court will dismiss the lawsuit.

"These allegations are offensive and frivolous," he said, declining to elaborate.

The complaint says Cecora and De La Hoya had sex and shortly afterward the boxing champ put on her underwear and walked around the room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in New York City. According to the filed complaint, De La Hoya then picked up a phone and ordered around $300 worth of cocaine and marijuana to be delivered to his room.

Cecora admits the intercourse was consensual but claims to have been held captive in the room and scared for her life by De La Hoya's alleged strange behavior and sexual requests

De La Hoya met Cecora in March of last year and invited her to meet for dinner at his hotel. After a long conversation, he invited her up to his room, according to the lawsuit. Cecora, whose lawyer, Tony Evans, said she has modeled for magazines including Playboy and Maxim, said she accepted the offer to his room but was unaware he was married at the time.

De La Hoya has gone through drug rehabilitation since the incident and is turning his life around, his attorney said.

"His life was spiraling out of control," Burstein said. "He's a changed person now."
