It’s a good day for NBA star Derrick Rose. The New York Knicks player was just found not guilty of raping a woman back in 2013. According to reports, a Los Angeles Federal court found that Rose and his friends did not commit sexual battery, handing them a victory in their civil case.

Rose, Randall Hampton, and Ryan Allen had been accused of breaking into the woman’s Los Angeles apartment and having sex with her when she was incapacitated from a night of drinking and, she claimed, possibly being drugged by the men.

After roughly three hours of deliberations, the panel of six women and two men rejected those claims. They found instead that the evidence showed the woman, who had been in a relationship with Rose, consented to the late-night encounter in 2013.

Rose nor his friends will be liable for damages claimed by the woman on all three counts — trespassing, sexual battery and battery.  The accuser was demanding $21.5 million – $6 million in compensatory damages and $15.5 in punitive.

No criminal charges have been filed in the case. The woman reported the incident to Los Angeles police two years after the alleged rape and LAPD officials have said they are continuing to investigate it.

Eva Marcille and boyfriend Michael Sterling have announced the gender of their unborn child. The couple is having, drum roll please, a baby boy!!!

Speaking to People magazine, Marcille explained how she broached the subject to her 3-year-old daughter, Marley, whom she shares with ex-boyfrined, Kevin McCall.

“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’ ” the 33-yea-old said.

She continued, “I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley.”

Marcille added, “However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I’m beyond elated to be having a boy.”

Eva has a big year ahead. The beauty, who is now 5-months-along, is not only expecting a new addition to the family, but will continue to showcase her life on Bravo’s, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Congrats to the couple.
