Former NBA guard Gilbert Arenas is back at it again, ladies and gentlemen. The man who went from being a top scoring point guard to yesterday’s news after drawing a near-season long suspension after he and a teammate nearly got into a gun battle has recently taken to Instagram to claim that he once bilked a strip club out of $40,000.
The post itself is NSFW, but Arenas’ caption said the following:
You kick me out your strip club, you getting robbed…..I know what yall thinking(soft ass aint robbing no body) I would like too inform all the big ballers out there,im the reason BIG strip clubs #fingerprint now hahaha..I’ll order $80,000 worth of ones,throw about $40,000 of it too the strippers,sneak the rest out the club…have one of my#teammates sign that bill….wake up the next day,call #americanexpress(my card was stolen at the strip club last night,and these charges aint mines) with a (no questions asked policy) once they see its not ur signture,they refund you ALL your money back lmaoooo soooo I got the $80,000 I spent back..PLUS the $40,000 I took out the club… #aintnotrickingbihhstrippers gave me that vagina on the house,it cost me nothing hahahaha#howyoudoing #ranoffontheclubTWICE#smartniggashit #greatinvestment #KOD‘S#MAGICCITY just call it a club appearance fee lmaooo
Clearly, Arenas hasn’t received the memo that Instagram is a public forum and that he may have just gotten himself in trouble with American Express for what he did. Then again, though Arenas has 322,000 followers on Instagram, who’s going to care, let alone turn him in?
But there’s also the fact that Arenas could just be puffing out his chest for the sake of looking like a tough guy on social media and regardless of if this story is true, don’t be shocked if this post gets deleted soon.
Don’t be like Agent Zero, kids. You’ll have a bad time, even with all of that money.
