Now, Malone is suing Harden.
That suit was filed by Moses Malone Jr today according to his attorney George Farah. It alleges Harden paid a group of people $20,000 in cash to attack and rob Malone at V-Live strip club last year. The lawsuit says Harden was angry because Malone wrote a Facebook post criticizing the star player for charging children for his basketball camp.
Harden’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, issued a statement via Carey:
I have previously discussed Mose’s allegations with James and others, and I am totally comfortable that the allegations are untrue. Unfortunately, I am afraid this is just another example of people shopping for a deep pocket when they find that the people actually responsible have no money.
An important reminder: There is no burden of proof for filing a lawsuit. Harden has not been charged with a crime.
