George Foreman accused of child sex abuse by ex-babysitter in explosive lawsuit

NewsGeorge Foreman accused of child sex abuse by ex-babysitter in explosive lawsuit

Boxing icon George Foreman has been accused of child sexual abuse by a former babysitter in a new lawsuit.

Foreman is already subject to two lawsuits by women who claim he molested them when they were as young as 13. Foreman has vehemently denied all allegations.

The Daily Mail has reported that a third woman has now come forward alleging that the 74-year-old sexually abused her when she was 15 and he was 24.

Express.co.uk has approached Foreman for comment regarding the latest allegations.

The third woman claims that she was abused at Foreman’s ranch in Livermore, California, in 1974 – the same year he fought Muhammad Ali in the famous Rumble in the Jungle bout in Zaire.

It is alleged in the complaint that the woman was taken to Foreman’s California ranch by one of his family members and that the former box paid “all expenses”.

The complainant claims that she was left alone with Foreman who then “began to ask plaintiff sexually explicit questions which plaintiff replied that she had absolutely no experience of.”

They also describe how they turned Foreman’s advances down before he “began to proposition her with money in exchange for him sexually penetrating her.”

It is alleged that he then raped her.

The two women who accused Foreman of sexually assaulting them in the 1970s, Gwen Hunter and Denise Shipes, say they were the daughters of Foreman’s sparring partner and boxing manager respectively.

In their lawsuits, they claim that they first met the boxer when they were under 10 years old.

They accused Foreman of grooming them for years before he raped them in several locations.

Last year, Foreman released a statement denying their allegations, saying: “Over the past six months, two women have been trying to extort millions of dollars each from me and my family.

“They are falsely claiming that I sexually abused them over 45 years ago in the 1970s. I adamantly and categorically deny these allegations.”
