It's been a rough couple months for former NBA champion Paul Pierce, as the current ESPN analyst was chastised by the public when he claimed to be a better player than Dwyane Wade back in April, while he recently saw his Celtics in 6 prediction get obliterated by the Milwaukee Bucks.
Now the former 10x All-Star is reportedly involved in some legitimate legal trouble, as he's now been sued for an alleged altercation that took place at the infamous UFC 229 when Conor McGregor fought Khabib Nurmagomedov.
While the aftermath of the alleged incident was captured on video with Pierce seen calling a security guard a racist, that individual is now claiming that Pierce "had gotten aggressive and physical" with a female security supervisor prior to the recording.
Christopher Mostello, the security guard in the video and the man suing Pierce, has alleged that Pierce was attempting to return to his seat without producing a ticket, and that he only intervened to help his female colleague that was only doing her job. Additionally, he notes that he only stepped in once Pierce "pushed the woman aside."
Now Mostello is suing Pierce for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, as he's claimed that he's been harassed and ridiculed ever since the video was released. Due to his reputation being damaged, he's looking for more than $15,000 in damages plus attorney's fees.
