New developments surrounding the Josh Giddey case. Last Monday (04), according to the website TMZ, Gloria Allred confirmed that she will act as a defense attorney for the underage teenager who was involved and had an inappropriate relationship with the Oklahoma City Thunder player.
After her name was announced in the case, the lawyer spoke out on social media confirming her presence defending the family and the student. Gloria Allred is recognized as one of the most influential women’s rights professionals in the United States.
According to data revealed in new case reports, Josh Giddey was involved with the teenager in 2021, when she was 19 years old and the girl was approximately 15 years old. However, the player’s defense claims that the athlete had thought that the student would be the same age as him.
“It is understood that the girl lied about her age to gain access to a nightclub, where she interacted with Giddey, which was confirmed through videos on social media. Multiple sources confirmed it was a one-night stand and ended the next day when Giddey learned he was in high school,” the information in the report stated.
The statements continued: “All parties involved thought the situation had been resolved until about two weeks ago, when the 21-year-old NBA star was informed that photos and videos of the two together might soon be leaked online.” Given the repercussions, the descriptions report that the girl and her family are sorry for the situation and the impact on the player’s career.
