Albert’s Rage Described

Wed., Sept. 24, 1997

Marv Albert’s accuser testified that the sportscaster was a tender, if kinky, lover for years before he erupted in a rage of biting, hair pulling and taunting: “You’re enjoying this, you enjoy rough sex.”

Albert is charged with sodomy and assault and battery.

In a voice often crackling with emotion, the woman said Albert liked to wear women’s underwear and sought threesomes with men, but she emphasized that violent sex was never part of their 10-year relationship.

Albert’s attorney, Roy Black, contended rough-and-tumble sex had become commonplace between them over the years and tried to show that the woman had sought to entrap Albert. Black introduced a audiotape in which the woman seemed to be asking a cab driver to divulge damaging information in exchange for money and a car. The woman denied that she had ever coached anyone, and said the talk with the cab driver was just a joke.
