It appears that Livv Cook’s family is not interested in engaging with the situation.
The investigation into whether Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey had an inappropriate relationship with a minor has encountered a hurdle, as TMZ Sports reports that the alleged teen and her family are unwilling to cooperate with officials.
Law enforcement sources reveal that obtaining information from the purported female and her close associates is crucial for understanding the social media claims that circulated over the weekend. However, at present, there is a lack of communication, posing a significant challenge for officials in determining if any laws were violated.
As previously reported, Giddey faces accusations of engaging in an intimate relationship with an underage girl from California, with alleged photos and videos depicting them together. While the NBA is investigating the matter, Giddey has continued to play for the Thunder despite the serious allegations.
During a practice session on Friday, the 21-year-old chose not to address the claims when questioned. Thunder coach Mark Daigneault also declined to comment on the inquiry before Tuesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, stating that he would not discuss anything off-court related to Giddey, emphasizing the player’s continued participation in games.
Despite playing 28 minutes and scoring 10 points in the loss to the Wolves, Giddey faced relentless booing from fans at the Target Center. Whether or not he is guilty, Giddey now faces the challenge of navigating public opinion, where the perception of wrongdoing has already taken hold.
