In a social media post on Instagram, San Antonio Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV claimed that he was sexually assaulted as a child. He claims that he was sexually assaulted in the fifth grade.
He was talking about his hair growing out in the same post that he claimed that he was sexually assaulted. He claimed that growing out his hair was a ‘cloaking device for me.’
During the summer of my 5th grade year, I was around more family,” Walker IV said in the post. “Some that names will be left alone, I was around more. I was sexually harassed, raped, abused, I even got accustomed to it because being at that age, you don’t know what is what. I was a gullible curious kid that my hair was something that I can control. My hair was what I can make and create and be mine. And it gave my confidence.
“As of recently, I wasn’t at my best. Previous history popping up in my head and it sucked mentally ‘demons’…. Because of this virus, I began to truly look at myself in the mirror and see who I found peace and internal happiness through this journey god willingly. I forgave everyone even the people that don’t deserve it. Why? Because it’s dead weight. Time doesn’t wait on anybody so why should I waste my time on it. Me cutting my hair was more than a cut. My hair was a mask of me hiding the insecurity’s that I felt the world wasn’t ready for. But now better then ever. Out with the old. In with the new. I have shed my skin mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Life will always be hard. Gotta play with the cards your dealt with and try and make a winning hard. And if you lose, it’s never a lost. It’s a lesson. I’m gonna be off this for a while still growing through this. Just know I love each and every one of y’all. Peace love and happiness.”
It’s not clear why Walker IV waited this long. Or who his alleged accuser might be.
His agent George Langberg also released a statement on Walker IV releasing the information.
“This is something that Lonnie has been dealing with for some time,” Langberg said. “Being able to share this shows tremendous strength and courage, while also lifting a weight off of Lonnie. It is his hope that by opening up, it will help anyone, who reads his story that may have been sexually abused in the past, or anybody who may be going through something similar now, to know that they are not alone. Lonnie appreciates the outpouring of support and appreciates everyone respecting his privacy at this time.”
