Ex NBA star Steve Francis has fired back against claims that he sexually assaulted a woman in Texas last year — claiming the allegations were concocted by a “broke ass dwarf who can’t sing.” According to TMZ.com, singer named Shauna Simien — who was signed to Francis’ record label, has claimed that he assaulted her outside of his office, grabbing her between her legs.
Francis responded via Twitter, “Well since it’s a lockout. I got a new job responding to people askin me about grouping [sic]a broke ass dwarf. Who can’t sing. What can a G do??” He added, “If you can’t sing, you can’t sing. Keep it moving.”
- Steve’s rep told the site that he adamantly denies the allegations.
- Simien filed the police report over a year ago. The case is still open and so far, no charges have been filed.
