The ex-wife of Lawrence Taylor says she doesn't believe he's capable raping a 16-year-old girl.
"The age factor, I don't think he would do such a thing. I really don't," she says.
Despite a tempestuous five-year marriage which ended in divorce, Maritza Cruz Taylor is speaking out in support of the former Dancing with the Stars contestant.
Maritza is now a singer with a band called Cache based in Miami. She met Lawrence Taylor in 1999 when he was shooting Oliver Stone's movie Any Given Sunday. She was an extra.
"The Taylor I met was kind, was gentle, was a good person," she tells INSIDE EDITION.
They were married in 2000 but she says she soon suspected he was unfaithful.
According to Maritza, women would throw themselves at Taylor.
