Rose’s attorney Lisa Cohen tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is “an attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete.”

Cohen explains the relationship between Rose and his accuser saying it was a “non-exclusive, consensual sexual relationship for over two years”  and there were never any complaints until lawyers started telling her to go after Rose for a payday. Cohen says this is the third attorney the plaintiff hired to sue Rose.
