Before Luke Walton became the head coach for the Lakers, he took advantage of a female colleague.
According to TMZ, Luke Walton is being sued for sexually assaulting Kelli Tennant, his long-term business colleague. According to a new lawsuit, he asked her to meet at his Santa Monica hotel to discuss a book. Based on their long-term business relationship, she was willing to write the forward. And that’s when things got strange.
In the new lawsuit, Tennant says that when she arrived at his hotel, he immediately pinned her to the bed, placing his hips and legs over her body. He then proceeded to forcibly kiss her neck, face, chest while groping her breasts and groin. Although she was able to break free, his advances did not stop there. In the documents, Tennant says that Walton grabbed her from behind and again forced his body up against her.
But now that he has parted ways with the Los Angeles Lakers, he has more than bad coaching to worry about. He’ll now have to deal with his shitty character and disrespect for women. Tennant, like most women claims she did not initially report Walton’s conduct. Instead, she was forced to interact with his daily for work. And even then, he would impose himself sexually on her. So if the allegations are true, he deserves to rot in jail.
Sources have attempted to reach Walton for comment and as you guessed it, nothing at this point. But what do you all believe? Do you believe the allegations are true? Please drop a comment below and for more celebrity news, gossip and updates, keep it locked to hypefresh.co!
