Settles ‘Kobe Owns Your Ass’ Lawsuit
11 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Remember when James Harden was accused of punching a Lakers fan in the face who told him “Kobe owns your ass?”
Well, seems Harden has finally thrown in the towel in that legal war … TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story, Harden was sued by a guy who admitted taunting James on the way out of a nightclub back in 2013.
The accuser says James socked him in the kisser and flipped him off … before speeding off into the night.
For his part, Harden never copped to the punch but said if — and only IF — he did it, the guy had it coming because he posed a threat to James and his friends.
They were poised for a legal showdown — but now, we’ve learned Harden struck a settlement with the accuser … essentially ending the case for good. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Moral of the story … don’t talk smack to James Harden, he just might punch you in the face.
