TMZ reported early on Tuesday, Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins allegedly called his 7-year-old son’s mother, Christy West, to try and get his son to his wedding in Atlanta this past weekend. West said no, and audio of the alleged conversation between the two was obtained by TMZ after West filed a restraining order against Cousins.
In the audio of the call the man, alleged to be Cousins, tells West “I’m gonna make sure I put a f*cking bullet in your head,” after being told she won’t allow Cousins’ son to attend the wedding.
Later on Tuesday, the Lakers released a statement acknowledging that they were aware of the video in question and were gathering information into the allegations that they take “seriously.”
This could potentially be a serious matter. Cousins suffered a torn ACL this summer and will most likely miss the entire 2019-2020 season.
