The plaintiff accused Rose and two friends of raping her at her apartment in Los Angeles in the summer of 2013. She filed civil suit two years after the alleged assault. Jane Doe has remained anonymous in the media to protect her identity.

Rose and his two friends were found not liable by the jury as they maintained that the sex they had with Doe that night was consensual. Doe alleged she blacked out and felt she had been drugged after hanging out and drinking at Rose’s Beverly Hills mansion earlier that night.

Rose was being sued $21 million as civil juries do not hand out jail time. However, the LAPD’s criminal investigation into the case remains ongoing.
