If Gloria Allred is involved, you know what is going to happen.
If Giddey doesn’t pay up, she is going to make his life a living hell and make it seem like Giddey is a predator who took advantage of a teen girl regardless of what the real story is.
According to Giddey, it was the other way around. He was 19 years old, and the girl lied about her age. He also claims he met her in an 18 and-over club, according to the NY Post.
The Thunder guard, 21, is claimed to have believed the California teen he was pictured shirtless alongside in pics leaked on social media was 19 when they met at a nightclub in 2021, according to sources who spoke to Australian site Code Sports.
The Post has identified the Oklahoma City club featured in the video and it has a policy of admitting people over the age of 18.
After realizing the girl was under 18 the next day, Giddey is said to have broken off the relationship, according to the sources who spoke Code Sports.
The age of consent in Oklahoma is 16, while the age of consent in California is 18.
Initially, it appears the teen and her family weren’t going to cooperate, but then it seems they realized they could use their daughter’s situation for financial gain, and that is why they hired Gloria Allred, according to TMZ Sports.
It likely won’t matter what Giddey was told by the girl if she and her family decides to press chargers. The club that allowed her in could also be liable.
Now that Allred is involved, it begs the question … why?
She could be tasked with liaising with cops, or even talking to Giddey’s people about a potential settlement.
We reached out to the powerful attorney who told us, “We represent the family and we have no comment.”
There are still a lot of questions surrounding the alleged relationship, which first came to light publicly last weekend, including the girl’s age, the state where it allegedly took place, and the nature of their relationship.
We’ve been told the investigation could be a lengthy one … but whatever happens going forward, it’s clear the family now has a pitbull repping them.
The two main question are if Giddey has some proof that the teen lied about her age and exactly how old was she when they had their encounters.
Flip the pages for the evidence against him.
