Claudia Do Val, four-time IBJJF World Champion, described a devastating sexual encounter with Ricardo De La Riva in an interview on "Unleashed – The Game Changers," hosted by Paola Diana.
He got to my home, he went over, he asked for a massage. My heart was like you know, almost leaving my body. But I was like: ‘It’s gonna be over soon, I hope he leaves and then the massage was over.’ And then he was like: ‘Ok, it’s my turn now.’ At that point on I didn’t know what to do with myself… There was something dying inside of me. I didn’t know what to do. He started touching me. I didn’t say no, I didn’t stop him… I was dying inside. I hate him so much because even though I didn’t say no with my voice, I’m sure that my body language was saying no because that wasn’t a choice. I was like a statue“.
