Former NBA player Larry Hughes arrested by police, accused of rape


Ex-NBA player Larry Hughes was walked out of the Trump SoHo hotel in handcuffs recently, after a night of partying at notorious club Greenhouse, which he partly owns.

Hughes was questioned at the 1st Precinct about an earlier incident at the luxury hotel and was then released without being charged, sources said.

NY Daily News reported that a 22-year-old woman accused him of raping her at the Trump SoHo Hotel. Hughes met the woman at the club Greenhouse on Varick St. and they left together around 4 a.m.

Video shows the two of them walking to the nearby hotel. Sources said he did not appear to be forcing her.

After she left the hotel she went to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell with a friend and told doctors she had been raped, sources said.

Greenhouse draws a hot slate of celebrities, musicians and professional athletes — but the exclusive club has also been the site of numerous violent high-profile fights.

A brawl between some University of South Carolina football players and a New York club promoter at Greenhouse on April 11 ended with one of the players stabbed and the promoter’s face smashed, law-enforcement sources have said.

A Bronx woman suffered a broken eye socket and needed 20 stitches after a nutcase hurled a bottle that smashed her in the face on Feb. 22, cops said.

And in December, “Mob Wives” star Natalie Guercio allegedly bashed a woman over the head with a bottle at Greenhouse.

The most notorious brawl broke out between musicians Drake and Chris Brown over singer Rihanna after Drake’s table sent a note that said “I am f–king the love of your life” to Brown at about 4 a.m. June 14, 2012.

The hot-headed hip hop stars and their entourages fought with fists and threw bottles that turned the club into a blood-soaked battlefield.

Also recently, Sundy Carter from “Basketball Wives: LA” has spoken with HipHopHollywood, about her child with Larry Hughes. She has reportedly decided to come completely clean about her former affair with former NBA star.

“When two people are adults and they have a mutual understanding… I didn’t get pregnant by myself. I didn’t impregnate myself,” Sundy said. “I won’t go deep into that because, for me, it’s not off limits but it’s just really irrelevant. It is what it is.”

“I know what it is, I don’t need to explain my self, I don’t need to explain my story as to how I got my Kennedy and clearly it wasn’t immaculate conception.”

Although Sundy has no problems admitting that her youngest child resulted from an affair, she doesn’t feel like she should be the only one being judged for it.

“We made this six-year-old together, and we knowingly did this and this is what it is. And this is the outcome,” she said. “Regardless to if I was lied to or whoever else was lied to or whatever, that’s not for me to judge. All I can go by is what was presented to me.”

When asked what her baby daddy thought about her joining the cast of BBWLA, the mother of three made it pretty clear that she made her decisions solely based on what she wanted and no one else.

Hughes — who is 6 feet 5 and was listed as 184 pounds when he played — was the 8th pick in the 1998 NBA Draft and was traded to the Knicks for the 2009-2010 season before finishing his career with the Orlando Magic in 2011-2012.

Hughes played in 727 NBA games (509 started), averaging 14.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg and 3.1 apg in 30.8 mpg.

He averaged career-best 22.7 ppg in 99-00 season with the Golden State Warriors. During the 2004-2005 season, Hughes led the NBA in steals per game, averaging 2.9 steals per contest.

Hughes is the president of the Larry Hughes Foundation & Hughes Charities Random Acts of Kindness.
