Dancer Says NBA Star Ambled Around Strip Club During 'Takeout' Visit: Report


A dancer at an exotic dance club has refuted an NBA star's account of his controversial recent visit.

Clippers star sixth man Lou Williams was forced to quarantine for 10 days when it was revealed he visited the Magic City strip club in Atlanta with friend and rapper Jack Harlow during an excused absence from the league's bubble campus in Orlando, Florida.

Williams had been excused for his grandfather's funeral and maintained he was merely stopping in for some wings -- a variety of which the club even named in his honor -- but a dancer named Aries has reportedly recounted a different version of events.

The 25-year-old says she is one of a few dancers who performed for Williams -- at a distance of six feet -- and "he tipped very well," according to the Los Angeles Times. Williams "ambled around the club" after he placed his order, the story said.

Williams strongly denied hanging out in the club beyond his visit to pick up the takeout.

The NBA launched an investigation into the incident and eventually extended Williams' quarantine period beyond the four days called for in the league's coronavirus protocols. He missed the Clippers' first game in the Bubble, a loss to the Lakers on the opening night of the restart. He was also due to miss their second game, against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The missed games would cost Williams around $150,000 in game checks, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.
