The Miami Heat have also issued a statement confirming that they are in the process of conducting an investigation into the allegations and will not have any additional comments until further information becomes available. Representatives for Conor McGregor vehemently died the claims, saying that the “allegations are false.” They added in their response that “Mr. McGregor will not be intimidated.”Conor McGregor is accused of raping a woman following Game 4 of the NBA Finals earlier this month. “At this time all we can confirm is that MPD’s Special Victims Unit is investigating a report that was filed Sunday, June 11, 2023. According to a report from TMZ Sports, the incident allegedly occurred after the Denver Nuggets’ win over the Miami Heat on June 9. McGregor made headlines that same night after sending the Heat mascot, Burnie, to the hospital after a stunt went wrong while promoting his Tidl Sport recovery spray. The letters state that the woman was able to gain some distance between herself and McGregor by telling him that she had to use the toilet. Allegedly, McGregor then forced the woman into giving him oral sex before pushing the reported victim against the bathroom wall and attempting to sodomize her. “Security refused to let [the woman] exit or allow anyone else, including her friend, inside the bathroom.” The lawyer then claims McGregor emerged from inside a handicapped stall “and shoved his tongue in the victim’s mouth and aggressively kissed her.”
