Single dads everywhere empathized with NBA superstar DeMarcus Cousins whose recent verbal altercation with his baby mama may land him in hot water with the league.
Cousins recently married his longtime girlfriend Morgan Lang. But the joyous occasion was preceded by disappointment when Cousins' ex-girlfriend, Christy West, refused to let his son be his ring bearer.
The 29-year-old Leo also has a young daughter.
In audio obtained by TMZ, the frustrated Laker is heard pleading with West to let his son attend his wedding, but she refused.
There is no doubting what Cousins said next: "I'ma make sure I put a bullet through your f---ing head."
West filed a police report in Alabama on Aug. 23 - one day before Cousins and Lang tied the knot in Atlanta.
The Lakers, who signed the ex-Warriors star to a contract during the 2019 off-season, responded to his threat in a statement on Tuesday.
"We are aware of the allegation involving DeMarcus Cousins and, of course, take this claim seriously. We are in the process of gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time."
