Charles Oakley rips James Dolan of the New York Knicks in a new lawsuit that TMZ has reported.
In February of 2017, Oakley was removed from Madison Square Garden and later arrested following the incident with security.
Oakley believes Dolan is after him because Oakley refuses to “kiss the ring.”
“Dolan constantly disrespected Mr. Oakley, refusing to make eye contact or shake his hand during meetings, denying the type of fan appreciation nights given to much less popular and successful members of the Knicks.”
What really ticked off Oakley was having to buy his own tickets to Knick games, while other retired Knicks were greeted with free seats.
This all goes back to February, Dolan claimed Oakley was an alcoholic and basically was dragging Oakley through the fire, pointing him out as the bad guy.
Oakley is suing for defamation, battery, false imprisonment and more. Oakley hasn’t said how much money he is settling for.
TMZ caught up with Oakley’s attorney Douglas Wigdor,
“While the facts of the complaint speak for themselves, Mr. Oakley filed this lawsuit out of principle and his desire to hold Mr. Dolan accountable for his actions which I can assure you that our Firm is committed to doing on his behalf.”
