at all of the idiots that hated on TMZ as a source! They are as legitimate as ANY news outlet and probably break more major stories than anyone.

TMZ doing Pulitzer Prize work

Reminds me of the Enquirer busting John Edwards dropping seed in Hollywood.

If he raped her then he should go to jail for life with no parole. If she consented to sexual relations then later regretted it and is making up the rape afterwards, she should go to jail for life.

Unreal story.

TMZ has cash. Whenever I think I'm about to witness something crazy, TMZ immediately pops into my mind. I think a lot of people talk to them for money.

I think it's the later. Regardless, it's incredibly difficult for the woman not to win in today's day and age when it comes to this kind of stuff.

She wins by getting raped?

ETA: Allegedly.

She truly has nothing to gain from this, fwiw.

Somebody on the inside leaked it to TMZ and the Reporter in Florida.

Had to be.

Matt Baker from Tampa was the one who contacted first from what I can tell- and he says his source "doesn't have an axe to grind" with FSU

Probably more of a fact that the investigation wasn't properly handled in some way, shape, or form.
