Lakers’ center DeMarcus Cousins has not had a good summer. After getting fit and joining the roster, he suffered another fatal injury that will keep him out for most of the upcoming season and maybe even forever.
And now, video evidence has surfaced capturing him threatening his ex-girlfriend and baby mama Christy West if she didn’t allow his son to attend his wedding.
“I’m gonna ask you this one more time before I take it to another level. Can I have my son here, please?”
“I’m gonna make sure I put a bullet in your f–king head.”
West alleges that the voice in the recording does indeed belong to Cousins, and she submitted the audio to the Mobile Police Department in Mobile, Alabama. It should be noted that the investigation is still ongoing, and Cousins has yet to act on the threat.
Still, it seems that the dark days are continuing for DeMarcus, who just a few years ago was considered one of the best big men in basketball. He is facing injury troubles and now possible character/legal trouble as this footage make sits rounds through the internet.
Hopefully, the threat was nothing more than a string of meaningless words and we can get back to rooting for his basketball return.
