Former Lakers reporter Kelli Tennant has sued Luke Walton saying he sexually assaulted her in his hotel room in May 2017 (TMZ)
Newly-hired Sacramento Kings coach Luke Walton has been sued for sexual assault by sports reporter Kelli Tennant, per a report from TMZ Sports. She accuses him of forcing himself upon her in a Santa Monica hotel room.
In the suit, Tennant says when she arrived at Walton’s hotel, he convinced her to come up to his room so they could discuss the book. She claims when they got up to his room, Walton suddenly pinned her to the bed, placing his hips and legs over her body. In the docs, Tennant claims Walton then began forcing kisses on her neck, face and chest. She claims she screamed for him to stop and tried to free herself, but he held her down, groped her breasts and groin, and rubbed his erection on her leg.
