Knicks’ Derrick Williams Was Robbed Of $750,000 In Jewelry By Two Chicks He Brought Home From The Club
New York Knicks Forward Derrick Williams was robbed of $750,000 of jewelry at his Tribeca, NY apartment late Friday night and he’s blaming the two floozies he brought home from the club.
According to the New York Post,
The women pillaged a Louis Vuitton jewelry case holding a small fortune in basketballer bling, law-enforcement sources said.
“I don’t want to talk about it,” Williams said after the Knicks’ game at Madison Square Garden Saturday night. “It’s still up in the air.”
Williams, 24, had been celebrating Friday night’s 107-97 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers with a group of friends at the Up & Down club.
Afterward, they headed back to Williams’ Broadway apartment — along with two women whom they had just met and who may have been using false names, the sources said.
After more partying at Williams’ bachelor pad, everyone went home.
But not before the two party girls found the Louis Vuitton case stuffed with three-quarters of a million dollars worth of jewelry in one of Williams’ closets.
Williams’ Instagram account depicts a Louis Vuitton case that could very well be the one in question.
Some of the possible valuables stolen via Williams’ Instagram account:
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. Merry Christmas to everybody. ✈️
Williams–who signed a two-year, $8.8 million contract with the Knicks this season–reportedly checked the closets at around 4 pm the on Saturday, only to find the case missing. At that point, the 24-year-old called the cops.
Being a young guy in the league, Williams has a lot to learn about being a professional on and off the court. He should take notes from comedian Artie Lange, who had Jimmy Fallon in hysterics when telling him how he would prevent hookers from stealing his valuables while he took a post-sex piss. It is equal parts hilarious and brilliant.
Live and learn, brah. Live and learn.
