The Los Angeles Lakers have issued a statement following the allegations:
“We are aware of the allegation involving DeMarcus Cousins and, of course, take this claim seriously. We are in the process of gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time.”
The mother of his child is now seeking a restraining order against Cousins.
It's a good assumption that Cousin's child support has been paid in full up to this point, if not child care would be the issue at hand. The spat allegedly originated from the child's mother denying Demarcus the ability to have his child attend his upcoming wedding.
DeMarcus has had a pretty ruff time these past two years. This could be a pretty big setback and maybe the last straw in his already troubled basketball career.
