According to a phone call recording obtained by TMZ and a a police report filed with the Mobile (Alabama) Police Department, DeMarcus Cousins threatened his ex-girlfriend, if she forbid their seven-year-old son, Amir, from attending a wedding between him and his new girlfriend.
Both the NBA and Lakers issued statements on Tuesday indicating that they are investigating these allegations while attempting to authenticate whether the recording is genuine. The NBA’s definition of “domestic violence” includes verbal threats which could lead to a Boogie suspension. Cousins is likely to miss the entire 2019-2020 season after suffering a torn ACL.
