Earlier today I wrote about how I thought LT was lying with his “self-love” defense. While it still seems a bit odd, there is some evidence supporting his claim.
A friend of the 16-year-old prositute has given a sworn statement saying the accuser bragged about not having sex with Taylor. The New York Post has the details:
The 16-year-old hooker whose claims about having sex with ex-Giant Lawrence Taylor led to a rape charge against him actually bragged to a friend about making “easy money” because “I didn’t even have to f— him,” a source told The Post.
The friend, who drove with the hooker to meet Taylor that night, has given a sworn statement that the girl told her immediately afterward that the Hall of Famer merely engaged in masturbation before paying her $300 — not sexual intercourse or oral sex, said the source.
The friend — a stripper who lived with the hooker and accused pimp Rasheed Davis in The Bronx — told investigators she has come forward to contradict the hooker’s tale to cops because of “three things: they didn’t have sex, she’s lying, and he’s innocent,” according to the source.
The source said the hooker’s friend also has told probers that the girl lied when she told cops that Davis beat her that night because she initially refused to go to Taylor’s room.
In fact, the friend has said, Davis slapped her with an open hand and kicked her because the hooker had told him her sister’s boyfriend had stolen brandy and marijuana from the pimp’s house, according to the source.
And, when a buddy of Taylor’s called to ask Davis for a hooker for the former Giant, “She was excited to make some money,” according to the source.
The hooker’s friend said that the underage girl began living with her and Davis in late April with the knowledge of the girl’s uncle and her sister, according to the source. The friend also has said the girl began dancing at several strip clubs and then turning tricks to pay $150 per week in rent to Davis, the source said.
“This was totally by her own free will,” the source said.
If you believe the stripper friend (hard to say who to believe anymore), our 16-year-old victim isn’t as “innocent” as she has proclaimed to be.
The “rape” case against Taylor seems to be falling apart; just with the information that is out in the public there is reasonable doubt as to whether any type of sexual activity took place in that Holiday Inn.
Reasonable doubt is all Taylor needs to escape the most serious charge.
Now as far as the hooker, the pimp, the stripper, etc., I am going to let you make your own choice about who you want to believe.
All the information from the time Taylor was charged until now has been covered without bias on BSO, so draw your own conclusions as to who the real victim is.
