Kennedy alleges in court documents that Rose 'used his fame, status and power as a celebrity to gain access to sexually manipulate, control and abuse her.
According to the lawsuit, Rose says he treated her as property used only for his own sexual pleasure.
The lawsuit adds that Kennedy felt there was no way out of this situation and was forced to accept.
She claims that she has suffered severe emotional, physical, financial and psychological distress as a result.
It is now seeking damages, but has not set a value.
Rose's lawyer said Kennedy's claims are 'fictitious'.
"Simply put, this incident never happened."

"Rose is convinced that this case will be resolved in his favor," said the lawyer.
