Sacramento Kings star Matt Barnes is a wanted man after reportedly choking a woman inside a New York City nightclub.

TMZ first broke the story; while at Avenue Nightclub on Monday morning, Barnes apparently got into an altercation with three different people, which ultimately ended with him putting hands on all parties involved.

Per the news outlet, the athlete got into an argument with a woman at the club and attempted to choke her. That’s when two other people tried to intervene; however, Barnes wound up hitting both of them.

TMZ captured Barnes and his teammate DeMarcus Cousins leaving the venue following the incident and in the clip, you hear Cousins say something like, “Matt hit the s*** out this ni***!”

Just hours before Barnes arrived to the club, the father of two posted this snapshot on Instagram with the caption: “@brandwills here goes your photo bro.. You know I hate taken these f@ckn selfies. Ha! But this jacket & shoes on point..S/O @jerrylorenzo for the kicks! @dsquared2 coat @fearofgod shoes.”


The baller, who was in town playing the New York Knicks, has not responded to the incident.

It definitely was a rough night for the athlete, who not only lost to the Knicks 106-98, but was taunted throughout the game by fans chanting Derek Fisher’s name. Fisher is the retired former teammate of Barnes who is now dating his ex-wife, Gloria Govan.

Calls to the Kings have not been returned.


Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
