IFWT_Eric Dickerson

Legendary running back and Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson says there’s NO WAY Freddie Gibbs is guilty of raping a woman in Austria; saying that he “supports Freddie 100 percent.”

Freddie Gibbs is engaged to Eric Dickerson’s daughter Erica.  They also have a beautiful daughter together named Irie.

Gibbs was arrested earlier this month in France and later ordered to be extradited to Austria after two women claimed the rapper and his security agent drugged them after a 2015 show and raped them at Gibbs’ hotel.

Gibbs has adamantly denied the allegations and has vowed to fight the charges.

Freddie popped the question to Dickerson’s daughter, Erica, last March so TMZ Sports contacted ED to ask how his family is handling the situation.

“I don’t know too much about the specifics of the situation,” Dickerson told TMZ.  “But I do know Freddie and I know his character, I believe him.”

“I talked to Erica (his daughter) and she said that she knows Freddie and knows that he would never be capable of doing something like that.”

Dickerson says he’s also been in contact with Freddie and offered up some advice on how to handle the situation.

“When I talked to Freddie, I told him the main focus is to stay positive. He told me ‘I will fight this the whole way. I don’t want to go through this without clearing my name 100%.'”

Gibbs has been released on bail and his lawyer says he has NOT been formally charged with any crime.
