The teen runaway allegedly raped by Lawrence Taylor gave a frightening account of how her pimp dished out a violent beating to force her to have sex with the NFL Hall of Famer in a suburban New York hotel room.

The 16-year-old Bronx girl told the New York Post she initially refused to go along with the hookup, prompting a brutal backlash from alleged pimp Rasheed Davis.

"I told him I wasn't going to the hotel, and he said, 'You're f- - -ing this up, it's $300," the girl, 16 said Davis, 36, screamed at her early Thursday. "He hit me in the face, so I covered my face."

When the helpless girl crouched down Davis "started kicking and stomping on me," the girl said.

Police in Rockland County say Davis forced the girl to go to the Holiday Inn, where she allegedly had sex with the 51-year-old football great. Taylor was arrested last week and charged with third-degree rape. Police say he admitted to paying the girl $300 for sex, though during his arraignment, his lawyer denied that sex took place.

The girl told the Post Davis made her call herself Carmen and lie about her age to Taylor, and said the two-time Super Bowl winner likely never saw her injuries in the darkened hotel room.

 

"The lights were off and [Taylor] didn't see my face was bruised," the girl told the Post. "Lawrence asked me my age and I told him I was 19."

She said she complied with Taylor out of fear of Davis.

"If I didn't go through with it, [Taylor] would've called Rasheed and there would have been consequences," she told the Post. "God knows what would've happened if I didn't go through with it."

When Davis drove her back to the Bronx where she'd been staying with him, the girl text-messaged her uncle, begging for help.

"Help me," she wrote. "I don't want to live like this."

The uncle called cops who arrested both Taylor and Davis. The girl's uncle told the Post she is now in foster care, and her biological father is seeking custody.
