Who is Paul Pierce's wife Julie? NBA legend seen drinking and partying with strippers in live video
The former Celtics star was on the receiving end of a lot of backlash on social media
NBA star Paul Pierce is usually trending on social media for his many controversial take on sports. But his most recent scandal is one that no one could have possibly imagined. The last time Pierce took to Instagram Live, he shocked his entire fanbase by drinking, smoking and partying with scantily-clad women, presumably strippers. What surprised fans further is that he has been married for a decade.
On Saturday, April 3, the former Celtics star was on the receiving end of a lot of backlash on social media with many of his fans and fellow colleagues commenting on his adventures.
In the early hours of Saturday, the 43-year-old was streaming a video to his personal account on Instagram. In the video, he can be seen receiving a neck massage from a bikini-clad woman.
In the video, Pierce is also seen taking shots while filming another woman in a bikini twerking on the ground behind him. It appeared that he and his friends were playing poker as they threw chips at the woman dancing. In the video, Pierce was also interacting with the viewers who tuned in, telling one woman watching the stream, "You could make some money, girl."
"Stop playing... Monica, whatcha’ doing? If you’re in LA, come through," he added.
