New video has emerged of the role Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis played during a wild NBA fight that saw the fuming frontman escorted from the game.
A crazy brawl between members of the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets left three players – Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul – suspended for multiple games.
However, it’s now emerged that the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman was also prominently involved.
Footage shows Keidis losing his mind from his front-row seat and earning himself an ejection.
Paul wasn’t through with the Lakers after Rondo spit on his cheek and repeatedly punched him in the face, because Kiedis gave the Rockets star the verbal equivalent on his way out of Staples Center.
New vision shows Kiedis berating Paul before turning his attention — and his middle finger — to a Houston staffer, all as bandmate and Lakers super-fan Flea sits quietly in his courtside seat.
It’s unclear what the 55-year-old singer said to the future Hall of Fame point guard, but Kiedis was promptly escorted out of the arena by security.
We can only guess that the Chili Peppers frontman said something along the lines of “suck my kiss” or “what I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your mama.”
Damning close-up footage seems to show the alleged spit that sparked the bizarre brawl, with long-time rivals Rondo and Paul going toe-to-toe.
The Lakers’ Rondo insisted after the game that he didn’t spit at Houston veteran Paul, however, hours after the clips emerged, it was revealed Rondo and Paul had been suspended for three and two games respectively.
The Lakers’ Brandon Ingram, who effectively started the incident when he pushed Houston MVP James Harden, received a four-game ban.
