There were a lot of people who wondered why the cops were not investigating if Thunder’s Josh Giddey was having inappropriate relationships with underage girls after a video surfaced on social media a week ago.
In those videos, one or more women who may or may not been of legal age are bragging about having relationships with Giddey. Giddey himself appears in some of the videos and photos. In at least one video, he is shirtless with one of the girls.
There has never been an official police report filed and none of the girls that posted the videos and photos have claimed that Giddey did anything against their will, but that won’t matter if they were under the age of consent.
According to TMZ Sports, the authorities are now poking around to see if anything criminal happened.
Police are doing their due diligence on the recent troubling allegations surrounding Oklahoma City Thunder player Josh Giddey … with officials opening an inquiry into whether he had an inappropriate relationship with a minor.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports … Newport Beach PD is currently investigating the allegations involving Giddey made on social media over the past week … to see if there is any validity to the claims and if any laws were broken.
As we previously reported, anonymous X accounts accused the 21-year-old Australian athlete of having an intimate relationship with a minor based in California … and pictures and videos of Giddey with an alleged underage girl quickly spread online.
The age of consent in Oklahoma is 16 and in California is 18.
Andrew Bogut implied that Giddey may have been under the impression that the girls he was dealing with were 18 and over, but that likely won’t matter if it turns out they were 16 and younger.
According to the Thunder, Giddey will continue to play while the cops and the NBA look into the accusation.
