Movie director and famous Knicks superfan Spike Lee is the latest celebrity to beef with Knicks owner James Dolan and it looks like things are going to get ugly.

Before Monday night’s Rockets-Knicks game at The Garden, a video circulated on the Internet that showed Lee getting into a confrontation with arena security.

Apparently, Lee attempted to use the employee entrance to Madison Square Garden and was denied access by security.

On Tuesday morning, Lee went on ESPN’s First Take to tell his side of the story and claims the Knicks owner is harassing him for some reason.

Lee, who says he spends $300k a year on Knicks tickets, will not be attending any more games this season.

Update: The Knicks have fired back at Lee’s claims and are calling his allegations “laughable”.
