Clint Rickards says Louise Nicholas is "a liar who definitely needs help" and the stress she caused his family was one of his main reasons for quitting the police.
Broadcaster Willie Jackson said Rickards also "totally rejected" any branding of him as a rapist during an interview on Radio Waatea, to be aired today.
"He said she was a liar who definitely needed help," said Jackson.
"He was very, very resentful towards her, and really hates her for what she did to his family."
Ms Nicholas could not be contacted for comment last night.
In the interview, Mr Rickards says he felt betrayed by former police commissioner Rob Robinson.
He also talks about his days as an undercover cop, his perceptions of New Zealand police culture and his plans for the future.
Jackson and Mr Rickards met at Radio Waatea's Mangere studio yesterday for another interview after their talk two weeks ago was pulled off the air at the eleventh hour because of fears by Mr Rickards' legal team that the broadcast could jeopardise his confidential payout, which the Herald understands was settled over the weekend.
"He was nervous his settlement might not go through the first time we spoke," said Jackson.
Mr Rickards and former police colleagues Bob Schollum and Brad Shipton were found not guilty in March of kidnapping and indecently assaulting Louise Nicholas in Rotorua more than 20 years ago.
Schollum and Shipton were earlier convicted of a pack rape against another complainant.
Another former top policeman, John Dewar, was subsequently convicted of perverting the course of justice in the Louise Nicholas investigation and jailed.
In April Prime Minister Helen Clark praised Ms Nicholas for her courage and took credit for the Government's decision to block Mr Rickards' promotion to the highest level.
