In the video, Vanity Perkins can be seen arguing with the nail tech at a salon on Northwest 138th Street. Vanity Perkins is married to Thunder center Kendrick Perkins.
According to a police report, the fight escalated, and the nail tech can be seen pushing Vanity Perkins' hand out of her face.
Witnesses told KOCO that Perkins called her husband, who arrived at the salon before police did.
"He said some bad word, yes, and he was slamming on the door. He was running his car and threw a bottle," Nguyen said.
Vanity Perkins confirmed that her husband threw a Gatorade bottle at the salon window.
Via an anonymous emailer to The Lost Ogle:
Yeah it is getting around. I just heard from my wife that the lawsuit by Vanity Perkins is real. The mother of her friend I mentioned earlier was in the salon the day the police and FBI agents showed up to the salon to do some investigating for the lawsuit. Apparently she is suing for assault. Vanity is saying that the woman Asian owner held her down on the ground during their argument. Best part about the lawsuit, the Perkins didn’t know that the nail salon has security cameras and picked up the whole confrontation showing their was no assault and that Vanity instigated the whole thing and was in the wrong. I hope you figure out which nail salon it was since I still cannot figure that one out. Hope this helps.
P.S. During the argument, Vanity screamed out "Don’t you know who I am?" like it was going to get her out of paying the nail tech. This whole thing is over a $25 nail service. Makes it even worse.
Definitely be sure to hit up KOCO and TLO for the full story on the incident, and a video of the incident on KOCO's end.
I'm not one to pass judgement, but man, what a dumb thing to happen. It reminds me of when I was a kid, and my dad would complain about cold fries at Sonic when it was below freezing outside. Obviously we don't know who the emailer was or whether they were being truthful, but it seems to me that this is an entirely silly situation. If something's wrong with the service I'm given, I take my business elsewhere. I don't hassle the store owner and call for backup.
But if this tells us nothing else, it lets us know that this whole "tough guy" image that Kendrick Perkins claims to espouse is totally real. If you step on his toes, he'll wreak havoc on your nail salon! Watch out! Especially because he has an assumedly unlimited supply of Gatorade on hand.
Oh, and this means absolutely nothing in terms of basketball.
