Kelly Oubre has struggled with the Golden State Warriors this season, but things have ben even worse for him off the court as he is dealing with something a lot more pressing.
On Friday, TMZ Sports reported Oubre is currently in the midst of suing his ex-girlfriend Makena LeDuff, for allegedly trying to extort him out of $3 million.
“Makena demanded that Kelly her pay her nearly $3 million or she would make public her false, scurrilous, and extortionate allegations by the end of the week,” the lawsuit said.
The suit claims LeDuff contacted Oubre and threatened to say he was engaged in “criminal conduct” and make other false allegations all “crafted to cause maximum and irreparable harm to Kelly, his reputation, and his career.”
After the two of them broke up in 2019, LeDuff allegedly stole Oubre’s dogs and she has yet to give them back. Oubre filed a lawsuit at the time but nothing ever came of it.
Oubre is seeking to get the dogs back again as well as demanding punitive damages for all of the alleged harm LeDuff has caused over these last two years.
She has since responded on Instagram:
“2021 & we still listening to fake news.
Please voice comments, concerns, and bullshit elsewhere! We vibrate high over here”
Oubre also claims Makena threatened to hurt him with a thinly veiled threat she posted on social media back in August 2019.
“Makena posted a photo on her Instagram account, where she intimated that she would take physical action against Kelly, Kelly’s friends, or anyone else that tried to enter the house to help Kelly to retrieve his things,” the lawsuit claims.
The suit continues … “Specifically, the photo showed Makena in the backyard of the Beverly Hills house, wearing one of Kelly’s favorite hats, while at the same time brandishing a rifle. In the caption, Makena wrote, ‘Exercising ALL my rights.'”
