Lonzo Ball was pissed to be called a “deadbeat dad” by his ex-GF … and when the Lakers star confronted her about the comment — he told her, “It’s really not funny.”
Denise Garcia — Zo’s baby mama — went on social media in October and was asked to “blink if Lonzo is a deadbeat dad” … and she blinked with both eyes while laughing.
Cameras caught Lonzo confronting Denise over the post on the Ball family’s Facebook reality TV show … when he ripped into her for making the accusation.
“Came to see the deadbeat, huh?” Zo asked … “That was fun for you? You had fun? You’re laughing, but it’s really not funny though.”
Lonzo wasn’t the only one pissed about the comments … LaVar Ball was livid as well, saying, “How do you call somebody a deadbeat when you just had the baby?!”
In fact … the Big Baller was caught on camera talking to his wife about her exercise program when he said, “Are you getting in shape for a reason? So, you can knock the hell outta Denise?!”
For her part … Denise explained to Lonzo the whole thing was meant as a joke — and she apologized to the L.A. star.
“I shouldn’t have done it at all. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.”
Lonzo added, “Denise wants me to be more present during the weekends with her and Zoey, I see where she’s obviously coming from … I’m trying to make an effort to get there as much as possible.”
