Josh Giddey accused of underage dating allegations

Josh Giddey, the Thunder’s promising star, is the latest to be in the midst of a scandal that has bewildered the NBA world.

The allegations were initiated when an anonymous person posted images of the two together before it was subsequently taken down. Unfortunately, it had already affected Giddey’s reputation.

The girl in question Livv Cook, who is said to be a high school sophomore, was seen in the post which captioned the explicit images with strong claims of engaging in sexual intercourse with the 21-year-old Giddey.

Furthermore, the age of consent in Oklahoma is 16, which makes any involvement between Giddey and a 15-year-old a criminal offense. While the actual date of this occurrence isn’t certain, and the pictures probably show two different women at separate times. The allegations are left to be closely investigated for accuracy, as Giddey’s promising career hangs in the balance.

As concerns continue to mount, fans and observers are eagerly waiting to hear from the Thunder and Giddey, whose comments on the scandal aren’t made public yet.
