DeMarcus Cousins’ ex-girlfriend, Christy West, is alleging that the Los Angeles Lakers center threatened to shoot her last week, and she claims she has the audio to prove it.
In a recorded phone call from August 23 retrieved by TMZ, Cousins allegedly asks West if he can have his seven-year-old son with him at his wedding this weekend.
“I’m gonna ask you this one more time before I take it to another level,” the voice in the audio says. “Can I have my son here, please?”
Once West says no, the individual alleged to be Cousins responds by saying, “I’m gonna make sure I put a bullet in your f–king head.”
Here is the audio:
According to TMZ, West alleged in the court documents submitted to the Mobile Police Department in Mobile, Alabama that Cousins also told her that he was going to kill her, “even if he didn’t have to get his hands dirty doing it.”
West is reportedly seeking a restraining order against Cousins and wants officials to keep him away from her and their son — but notes that she’s open to allowing the current Los Angeles Laker to have supervised visitation.
