According to a report in the New York Post, Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya has been hit with yet another crossdressing scandal. During an interview that aired in September, De La Hoya admitted to dressing in drag, and fully confessed to wearing high heels, fishnet stockings and women’ panties in the infamous 2007 photos which showed the boxer in a hotel room with a New York-based stripper. During the September interview, De La Hoya said the crossdressing incident was fueled by alcohol and cocaine. The boxer has been very open about entering rehab and trying to clean up his act.
But now a new scandal has surfaced and a new woman has come forward. 25-year-old New York model Angelica Marie Cecora is claiming De La Hoya was involved in a booze and cocaine fueled sex party at The Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South in New York City. The incident allegedly took place earlier this year.
“It was beyond kinky,” Cecora told the New York Post. “Things that I don’t even know how to explain were done with him. He started to put my stuff on, my underwear. I had a skirt with me. He put that on. He was the exact same size as me. He fit into the tiniest pair of underwear that I had been wearing. He was dancing, playing around with my [clothes], playing a woman, very feminine. We had intercourse . . . He wasn’t taking no for an answer, as if I could leave. He ordered drugs to be delivered to the room. I tried to hide them from him to keep him under control, but he just wanted more and more.”
Cecora, who has posed for Playboy and Maxim, has filed a lawsuit against De La Hoya, claiming "emotional distress, false imprisonment and assault and battery."
In the lawsuit, Cecora claims De La Hoya contacted her through he modeling website to help him “relax” last March 15 after returning from a goodwill visit with the troops in Iraq. He told her his name was Thomas Crown, but finally revealed his true identity over dinner after flashing his AmEx Black Card. During dinner, De La Hoya was allegedly boozing heavy, and then continued to drink once they hit his hotel room. The model claims she was barely able to control the boxer, and had to call in her Russian roommate - and then things got out of control.
“He said there was no alcohol and no women [in Iraq], and he needed to unwind,” Cecora said. “Once dinner was over, he decided he wanted me to spend the whole night with him."
"He had asked [my roommate] to bring some stuff with her. Some more underwear, some vibrators, toys . . . She brought a vibrator, a dildo, a bong. He was naked the whole time, wearing our underwear, nothing more. He had both of ours on at the same time. We locked him out of his own room and made him sleep in the living room. He came in the room about four times, trying to crawl in bed with us, to the point that me and her screamed at him, ‘Go away, Oscar. Otherwise we’re leaving, and its not going to be pretty.’ He wasn’t taking no for an answer.”
In the morning, De La Hoya was gone and allegedly left the women with an unpaid bill of $1,500 dollars.
“All the paraphernalia was cleaned up, the toys were all still left there, plugs, everything we had [used] was still there, but the drug paraphernalia was cleaned up,” she said.
A lawyer for De La Hoya, Judd Burstein, told The Post he was “unable to reach my client for comment.”
Cecora’s lawyer, Tony Evans, told the paper, “I think this case is a sad example of abuse of power. Clearly, my client was intimidated and abused by Mr. De La Hoya’s abuse of his celebrity power, his monetary power and his tremendous physical power and presence. It’s never OK to dehumanize and intimidate people, as was done here.”Tags: Oscar De La Hoya
