Kelli Tennant says she waited to bring up Luke Walton sexual assault allegations because she was scared

A former Spectrum SportsNet reporter who is suing former Lakers coach Luke Walton for an alleged sexual assault said she can no longer remain silent after struggling for years to cope with the incident. A former sports reporter who has accused newly appointed Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton of sexual assault told reporters Tuesday she was scared to report the incident. She filed a lawsuit in a California court, saying she sustained physical injuries and suffered mental and emotional distress after Walton forced himself on her in a Santa Monica, California, hotel room, about five years ago. She held a news conference on the ground floor of a mid-Wilshire law office, seated between the two attorneys who filed the suit on her behalf, Garo Mardirossian and David deRubertis. Mardirossian said he has known Tennant, 31 since she was 12 years old. On a wall behind them hung framed boxing memorabilia, including in what was likely an unfortunate coincidence, a glove, and boxing trunks said to have been worn by Mike Tyson, who was convicted of rape in 1992. “I was scared,” Tennant said. “When someone assaults you and you think you’re going to be raped, coming forward is a scary thing. I have spent years now dealing with it, trying to forget about it, hoping that I can push it to the side and hoping that time would heal. And that was not the case. Over this time, I was able to muster up the courage and have conversations with Garo where I felt comfortable talking about this.” “So many of us feel silenced and feel this burden at not wanting to lose everything we’ve worked for,” Tennant said. “Telling someone that you trust and being able to go to HR is super important. I don’t think every person has that ability. I don’t think every person has that protection. This is why we are in a state where this is such [a common] conversation.”

Who is Luke Walton?

Walton was the Los Angeles Lakers coach from 2016 until earlier this month when he parted ways with the team and was hired by the Kings. He was an assistant with the Warriors from 2014 to 2016. Walton is a former NBA player for the Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers and the son of NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton. Tennant says in the lawsuit that Walton groped her breasts and groin area and “laughed at her pleas to stop,” according to court documents. She says she, “was afraid she was about to be raped.” Tennant said in the lawsuit that Walton was a trusted “mentor” and she knew him to be a “married man with children whose wife she was acquainted with,” according to the lawsuit. Walton is currently married to Bre Ladd, a former volleyball player at the University of Arizona. He also attended Arizona and played basketball for the Wildcats, and the pair have been married since 2013.
