James Harden is being accused of getting some revenge the ski mask way at a Houston strip club.
So, according to one Moses Malone, Jr., the son of late-NBA legend who shares his name, James Harden doesn’t take too kindly to people not putting “respek” on his name.
Malone, Jr. is claiming that Harden sent some goons to rob him at gunpoint outside of Houston shoe modeling establishment V Live Houston.
Houston’s ABC affiliate KTRK reports:
Malone Jr. said he wrote a post on social media criticizing Harden for charging too much money for his youth basketball camp.
Eyewitness News received a screenshot of Malone’s Facebook post. In it, Malone wrote, “Don’t he make WAY more $ then (sic) Donald Driver???? But, he charging 249$ & the inner city kids have NO CHANCE to go to his camp. Hollywood Harden #Fact.”
Malone said he believes Harden got mad and sent his entourage to beat him up and steal his jewelry. At least four of the men had guns, according to a Houston Police Department spokeswoman.
Malone’s attorney, George Farah, said the stolen David Yurman jewelry was worth about $15,000 and that the club security guards were complicit in the attack.
Carl A. Moore represents V Live. He said the claims that security guards did not help Malone is false.
“I don’t believe Mr. Harden was at the club, and I definitely don’t believe he had anything to do with an attack on Mr. Malone,” Moore said. “And so the club’s position is that Mr. Malone is a regular of the club. We would have done everything we could to make sure he was safe.”
