It’s well established that Lonzo Ball and his family are an odd bunch, but this latest discovery might take the cake. Lonzo, who will turn 20 later this month, has his girlfriend cut up his steak for him.
Drew tipped us off to the man-card revoking habit during today’s show, and I suffered through 14 minutes of the “Ball in the Family” reality show to find the clip. In it, Lonzo takes his longtime girlfriend Denise out to a nice dinner, and when the steak (cooked medium well, natch) arrives, Lonzo attempts to cut it before his girlfriend interjects and offers to do it for him.
“Need me to cut it?” Denise asks. “Give me your fork. He can’t cut his own steak.”
“She cuts it on a regular basis?” A producer off camera asks.
“Yeah,” Lonzo replies before offering to cut Denise’s steak, hacking into it like a person who never cut a piece of meat in his life.
Denise can’t always be around, so Lonzo has other people in his life to help him eat food. Earlier in the episode, we’re introduced to “DMO,” Lonzo’s trainer, manager, roommate, and — you guessed it — food cutter:
LaVar even takes a shot at Lonzo for it earlier in the episode, quipping, “He’s got people cutting his food up, you think he’s going to put some pictures [up on the wall]?”
You know it’s bad when even LaVar’s making fun of you. Have a laugh at Lonzo’s expense around the 14:40 mark:
