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. Several people connected to the assault have already been charged criminally.
In the post, Malone Jr. was critical of the cost of the camp. After posting that, he says he started getting text messages including one that Malone Jr. claims is from someone close to Harden.
“Mr. Malone did receive some texts from close friends of Mr. Harden stating, ‘Why did you do that?'”
A day after the post, Malone Jr. says a group of people with guns beat him and robbed him, taking $15,000 of jewelry.
The four men involved in the attack have already been charged in the case. Malone also filed a lawsuit against the strip club and is seeking $1 million in damages.
