NEW YORK — The headlines said one thing, the allegations were serious — New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley was accused of attempted rape.
"In this situation, I never said this kid raped me," said the woman, who PIX11 is referring to as Chan. “Nowhere on the document shows that I said he raped me, which is why the cops can’t charge him with rape.”
But police were told an assault happened after a sexual encounter, so they investigated the incident as an attempted rape.
She says she met Bromley through social media and they agreed to meet at a hotel in midtown two weeks ago.
Chan says her emotions got the best of her when the two had a falling out after checking into the hotel.
"This particular NFL player and I got into a disagreement, it got a little shaky," Chan said. "It wasn't anything too extreme and the cops were called."
Police immediately took statements from both sides and looked at surveillance video from the hotel.
Chan went through the normal process when police are investigating a sexual crime. She did a rape kit and had an interview with the NYPD's Special Victims Unit. No formal rape charges were ever filed against Bromley.
Chan says she turned to social media to vent.
"I am a female that is emotional like a lot of entertainers I went to social media and said to heck with you, then I said let me delete this and turned to my bishop," she said.
Chan told Bishop Lamar Whitehead the truth about what happened in the hotel that night; how a disagreement turned into a disaster.
"She said I don't want this young man to get in trouble," Whitehead said. "It was a situation where two careers could have been destroyed off a lie."
Whitehead and his ministry are known for counseling the hip-hop community, athletes and celebrities.
From day one, Bromley has maintained his innocence by not making any public statements. The NFL said it would monitor the situation.
The NYPD will not file charges against Chan or Bromley.
