Former Lakers forward Samaki Walker allegedly attacked his girlfriend, Unique Allen, in a motel parking lot last week, per several reports.
According to TMZ Sports, the accuser maintains that the former NBA star was “violent is lying through his teeth,” despite Walker’s insistence that he did not attack his girlfriend.
The incident occurred on Thursday morning after an altercation at a motel in Encino, CA. According to Walker’s girlfriend, the argument began in the room before moving to the parking lot. After the couple entered Walker’s Range Rover, the former Laker struck his girlfriend several times in the jaw and the arm.
Walker’s girlfriend has also accused him of choking her. She sent across a photo to TMZ with alleged bruises on her arm. According to an onlooker, cops arrived at the scene after receiving a complaint about “a fight between a man and a woman in an SUV.” However, they arrived too late.
Walker has insisted that his girlfriend was “the aggressor” and struck him multiple times, swearing that he did not strike back. While Allen has not yet filed a police report, she is considering legal options.
Walker, who won a championship with the Lakers in 2002, regrets not staying at the motel for police to arrive, per reports. Stay tuned for full report.
