In an already shaky case where Andrea McNulty, a cocktail waitress at a hotel in Lake Tahoe, Nev., accused and sued Ben Roethlisberger of raping her during a celebrity golf match last year, things just got worse for the accuser.
An affidavit (a sworn statement of fact) signed and released by Angela Antonetti, stated that McNulty bragged about having consensual sex with Roethlisberger.
The statement said that McNulty "did not appear to be upset, stressed-out or nervous" regarding Roethlisberger.
Instead, she said that she appeared "happy and boastful." However, later she said she thought she might be pregnant from the encounter, the affidavit said.
The lawsuit, filed on July 17, alleges multiple Harrah's Lake Tahoe managers took part in a cover-up.
It also said that she went into depression after the alleged attack, and spent several months in and out of hospitals, and she's seeking a minimum of $490,000 plus any damages.
Recently, the case against Roethlisberger has been crumbling, and it appears that it may just be an attempt to extort money from Roethlisberger. If this recent affidavit is treated as relevant by a judge, it is likely that the case will get thrown out court.
If it is thrown out, Roethlisberger would have a chance to file a lawsuit, for false accusations and libel.
