Injured Lakers big man Demarcus Cousins apparently threatened her ex-wife Christy West with murder.
TMZ released audio recordings that quote the NBA player shouting “I’m gonna put a bullet in your (f) head” after she did not allow their 7-year old son to attend the wedding of Cousins and his girlfriend.
The mother and daughter were in Alabama when the threat was made. Despite the altercation, Cousins, and girlfriend Morgan Lang tied the knot last week in Atlanta. Joining them in attendance are basketball stars Anthony Davis, and John Wall. However, his son was not among them.
Demarcus Cousins has had a series of complaints of domestic violence. In addition to the recent threats made on the leaked audio, West allegedly claims that Cousins previously choked her during another fight.
Consequently, West has filed for a Temporary Restraining Order against Cousins. This after another audio leak surfaced where Cousins told her that he will kill her regardless if he or someone else had to do it. She awaits the ruling of the court.
Demarcus Cousins’ Lakers are aware
The Lakers’ front office has confirmed that they are aware of the allegations against their players. However, they mentioned that they do not intend to give out a statement at this time. This, according to them, is part of their approach in gathering more information towards assessing their strategy. Demarcus Cousins signed a one-year veteran’s minimum deal to play for the purple and gold. Unfortunately, he went down with a season-ending ACL injury two weeks ago.
This is a developing story.
