Derrick Rose is bringing Tupac Shakur in the hopes of getting the judge to force his rape accuser to reveal her identity during the trial … TMZ Sports is reporting.

Rose brought up Tupac Shakur’s old sexual assault case — a case in which a judge forced the rapper’s accuser to reveal her identity, according to TMZ.

Tupac served 9 months in prison and then sued in civil court — where the woman tried to use a pseudonym to protect her identity, according to TMZ.

The judge sided with Tupac claiming the woman and her legal team tried to gain a “tactical advantage” in the case through public statements bashing Tupac, according to TMZ.

“Mr. Rose would be placed at a serious disadvantage if he were required to defend himself publicly while Ms. Doe could make her accusations from behind a cloak of anonymity.”
