De la Hoya's ex claims she was bullied

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- A former girlfriend of boxer Oscar de la Hoya said he bullied her into admitting that she doctored photos of him in drag.

Milana Dravnel, 22, claimed de la Hoya's lawyer bribed her into signing the false contract during a 1 1/2-hour meeting that took place Sept. 23, 2007, in a deli, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

The agreement reportedly barred Dravnel, who is pressing a $25 million defamation suit against de la Hoya, from filing a suit and fined her $25,000 every time she broke its terms.

As a second part of the deal, de la Hoya said he would pay $250,000 each time he publicly talked about the photos or slandered Dravnel, the report said.

It is reported that Dravnel claims the agreement isn't valid because her lawyers haven't approved it.
