The model who claims Oscar De La Hoya assaulted her went on the offensive Wednesday, saying the former star boxer "should apologize" and that he "took advantage of me in every way possible."
In a news conference outside a Manhattan courthouse, Angelica Marie Cecora lashed out at De La Hoya prior to a hearing in the civil case.
The Post reported last year that Cecora, 25, claimed the boxer assaulted her during what she described as a kinky, drug-fueled hotel romp last March at The Ritz-Carlton.
He came across as a very genuine person when I met him ... but things got out of control. He took advantage of me in every way possible.

Cecora is suing the retired fighter for assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
"He came across as a very genuine person when I met him ... but things got out of control," she said. "He took advantage of me in every way possible."
Lawyers for De La Hoya, who denies the allegations, were in Manhattan Supreme Court to argue on their motion to have the case dismissed.
But Cecora's lawyer, Tony Evans, accused the boxer of trying to "cover up" the incident.
Evans was set to argue his own motion before the judge to have the boxer's lawyer, Judd Burstein, removed from the case because he is a potential witness.
De La Hoya, who turns 39 next week, last fought in Dec. 2008, suffering a TKO loss to Manny Pacquiao. He was 39-6 in his career, winning titles in six weight classes.
