MIAMI – The latest video making the rounds online, released by TMZ Sports, appears to show former UFC fighter Conor McGregor hanging out at a club along with the woman accusing him of rape and the clip seems to be taken after an alleged assault.
McGregor through his attorney has denied all allegations.
Last week, the first video to appear allegedly shows McGregor leading the woman into a men’s restroom at the Kaseya Center on June 9 after Game 4 of the NBA Finals, according to TMZ, where the rape reportedly took place.
Attorney Barbara R. Llanes, who is representing the Irish mixed martial arts star, accuses the woman of lying.
“Our account of the evening has never changed and this video only reinforces our position. We look forward to the swift conclusion of the investigation,” Llanes said about the second video release.
Llanes had already released a statement saying McGregor’s account of the evening had not changed.
“After the video was released by TMZ, the claimant’s lawyer now has changed her story. Mr. McGregor welcomes the investigation, which he firmly believes will show the claims against him are false,” Llanes said in a statement. “After not responding to the demand for money made by claimant’s counsel, she turned to the media to apply pressure. This is no more than a shakedown.”
Ariel Mitchell who is representing the woman claims McGregor forced her to perform sex acts while she was trapped inside a VIP bathroom at the Miami arena. A demand letter claims one of McGregor’s guards was also in the bathroom. The letter goes on to say:
“As the victim tried to exit the stall, Mr. McGregor aggressively grabbed her, pinned her up against the wall, and then ripped the elastic waistband off her pants while pulling them down,” Mitchell wrote in the demand letter.
She also shared messages the woman sent on Instagram hours after the alleged attack to a security guard she knew who was outside of the bathroom at the time.
Guard: What’s up?
Alleged victim: Yooooo I didn’t know he was trying to (expletive) in the bathroom. (He) was crazy. I pushed him off mr (sic). He pulled my pants down.
Guard: How did u not know? LOL
Alleged victim: I was like noooo.
Cuz I thought it was jus (sic) to go to the bathroom.
I wasn’t (expletive) any man in a bstgroom (sic).
Ever. I don’t care who u r.
Guess I’m an idiot
Mitchell said they filed a police report on Sunday, June 11 and turned the woman’s clothes over to police for forensic testing.
“They escorted her outside of the Miami police precinct and told her that if she were to report that crime at that time that it would immediately go viral within 20 minutes; that she should seriously consider hiring an attorney to either a) resolve this before a police report is necessary b) or to help her navigate once she did file a police report,” Mitchell said. “My client was as you could imagine very afraid.”
Earlier this year, another woman accused McGregor of an assault on a yacht after a party in Ibiza, Spain. He also denied those accusations and the case was later closed.
Local 10 News has reached out to Miami police who are investigating the allegations. So far, no charges have been filed.
