Lawsuit accuses De La Hoya of sexual assault
A former executive of Oscar De La Hoya's tequila brand accuses the boxing great of sexual assault and harassment on two occasions in 2020.

Oscar De La Hoya is being accused of sexual assault in a civil lawsuit.

It was filed this week by a former employee of his tequila brand Casa Mexico.

The woman alleges De La Hoya sexually harassed and assaulted her on two separate occasions in early 2020.

One alleged assault was while they were on a company trip in Mexico - and another was while they were at a small gathering at his house.

The former boxer denied the lawsuit allegations in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.
