NBA player Lou Williams is being investigated by the league for allegedly visiting a strip club after he left the Disney World coronavirus bubble to attend a funeral, US media reported.
The 33-year-old Clippers player was granted permission to leave the Orlando resort – where NBA athletes are living and working during the US COVID-19 outbreak – after the death of a friend’s father, according to ESPN.
Williams was pictured in Atlanta’s Magic City strip club on Thursday night, holding a drink and wearing an NBA face mask, US media said.
The photo, posted on US rapper Jack Harlow’s Instagram account, was later deleted.
Williams has told the NBA that he attended a dinner there following the funeral, ESPN said.
On his official Twitter account, he tweeted Saturday: ‘Ask any of my teammates what’s my favorite restaurant in Atlanta is. Ain’t nobody partying. Chill out lol.’
He also retweeted praise of Magic City, and individuals defending him.
