A lawsuit has claimed that the retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya threw a depraved, cross-dressing, drug-driven orgy at New York’s Ritz Carlton Hotel.
New York model Angelica Marie Cecora, 25, says Oscar De La Hoya cavorted around in women’s underwear and went crazy with cocaine and sex toys, intimidating her and her friend when they tried to leave.
This is the second time Oscar De La Hoya has been accused of wearing women’s underwear.
The first woman to do so, Milana Dravnel, was rumoured to have been paid $20 million to go away in 2008.
Oscar De La Hoya contacted Angelica Marie Cecora in March, through her modelling website, according to the suit.
The sportsman said he had just come back from a trip to Iraq, where he had been visiting the troops, and wanted to relax, following the stint “without alcohol or women”, the suit claims.
Angelica Marie Cecora says Oscar De la Hoya told her his name was Thomas Crown, like the millionaire art thief played by Pierce Brosnan in the 1999 film “The Thomas Crown Affair”.
She only discovered his real name during dinner, when she saw his credit card, she said.
Back up in his room Oscar De La Hoya revealed his cross-dressing fetish, she claims.
“He started to put my stuff on, my underwear. I had a skirt with me. He put that on,” Angelica Marie Cecora said.
“It was beyond kinky,” she told The New York Post.
“Things that I don’t even know how to explain were done with him.”
Angelica Marie Cecora told the New York Post that Oscar De La Hoya was tiny and fit into her underwear perfectly.
They had sex and Oscar De La Hoya ordered drugs to the room, she claims.
The retired boxer told the model that he loved Charlie Sheen and kept shouting the actor’s catchphrase “Winning!”
Angelica Marie Cecora later summoned her Russian roommate, to join them, she claimed.
At Oscar De La Hoya’s suggestion, the other woman, a dancer, brought sex toys to the romp.
But when the girls grew tired and tried to sleep he allegedly became persistent.
“We locked him out of his own room and made him sleep in the living room,” Angelica Marie Cecora said.
“He came in the room about four times, trying to crawl in bed with us, to the point that me and her screamed at him, <<Go away, Oscar. Otherwise we’re leaving, and it’s not going to be pretty>>.”
In the morning, Oscar De La Hoya was gone but the girls were stuck with a bill for nearly $1,500.
They left without paying but Oscar De La Hoya’s manager later tried to settle the bill with her.
The lawsuit alleges emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery,
Two months after their night of passion, Oscar De La Hoya went to rehab for substance abuse.
Angelica Marie Cecora’s lawyer, Tony Evans, called the case “a sad example of abuse of power”.
Tony Evans told the New York Post: “Clearly, my client was intimidated and abused by Mr De La Hoya’s abuse of his celebrity power, his monetary power and his tremendous physical power and presence.
“It’s never OK to dehumanize and intimidate people, as was done here.”
A lawyer for Oscar De La Hoya, Judd Burstein, told the New York Post he had been “unable to reach my client for comment”.
