This guy is having a bad month to say the least. Last week his wife left him, this week he’s pulling heaters on his girlfriend and most New Yorker’s aren’t too happy he’s still a resident. Cold world.
According to NY Post reports:
New York Knicks star Raymond Felton was questioned by police Tuesday morning after allegedly pointing a gun at a woman, sources said.
The starting point guard, whose wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, recently filed for divorce, was being quizzed at the 20th Precinct Station House on the Upper West Side, according to law-enforcement sources.
Poilce said Felton was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth-degrees.
Officers escorted the point guard from the precinct through a back door into a black Ford Taurus and pulled away quickly.
The woman involved was his girlfriend, sources said.
It was not clear where the alleged incident happened.
The Post’s Page Six reported last week that Felton’s wife filed for divorce after 19 months of marriage.
Felton — whom the Knicks signed two years ago in a vain effort to replace Jeremy “Linsanity” Lin — scored just eight points in the Knicks’ 110-108 loss to the Dallas Mavericks shortly before the incident on Monday night.
He inked a $10 million, three-year contract, and the team failed to unload him by last week’s trade deadline.
SMH. Get it together Raymond.
Here’s some info about the divorce via Page Six:
Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is being divorced by his wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, after less than 19 months of marriage, as rumors fly that the Knicks are also planning to trade him.
Beautiful 26-year-old law student Ariane, who married 29-year-old Felton in 2012, filed for divorce Tuesday in Manhattan, Page Six can exclusively reveal. A second source confirmed Felton has personally been served with divorce papers, although the grounds for divorce were not clear Tuesday night.
Brunette Ariane, a Cornell graduate and former paralegal at corporate law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, is now a first-year student at Fordham University School of Law.
She reportedly dated Felton for a number of years before the couple tied the knot on July 28, 2012, in Wake Forest, NC.
He reportedly said on their wedding video, “Beautiful as ever, from the first day I met her. I’m going to take care of her. You have my word. I promise you. No matter what it is, I’m always there for you. I love you.”
The NBA star and Ariane shared an apartment on the Upper East Side and have no children. But Felton had fathered a son with another woman before he and Ariane were married.
South Carolina-born Felton signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks in 2012. He previously played for the Portland Trailblazers and the Denver Nuggets.
But he has had a horrible season with the Knicks and is currently the focus of trade talks ahead of the NBA deadline on Thursday. The Knicks are said to be considering Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague in a trade for him.
Felton, who was with the team in Memphis Tuesday night, recently said he doesn’t care about the critics: “I’m human. I’m going to have mistakes . . . I couldn’t care less what people say. I’m a strong-minded person. They can say what they want, but they can’t dictate my life.”
A rep for the Knicks declined to comment.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t drink himself into a stupor or do anything else stupid. Season ain’t over yet Ray, time to focus on sports, not skirts!
