Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma has found himself in hot water off the court, as he faces a lawsuit over an alleged dog bite incident that occurred during a flight in May. According to reports, Kuzma’s dog, a French Bulldog named Boujee, bit a man on the arm while on a plane from Los Angeles to Washington D.C.
The plaintiff, identified as Jonathan Katz, claims that he was seated next to Kuzma and his dog when the animal suddenly lunged at him, causing serious injury. Katz alleges that Kuzma was negligent in failing to properly restrain his dog, resulting in the attack.
Kuzma’s legal team has yet to comment on the matter, but sources close to the situation indicate that the NBA star is taking the allegations seriously and is cooperating fully with authorities.
This is not the first time that Kuzma has faced controversy related to his pet. In 2020, he was criticized for bringing Boujee onto the court during a game against the Charlotte Hornets, prompting concerns about potential health risks to players and staff.
As the latest celebrity to face legal action over a pet-related incident, Kuzma joins a growing list of stars who have encountered similar problems. In recent years, celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Justin Bieber have all faced legal issues related to their pets.
While the outcome of Kuzma’s case remains uncertain, it serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible pet ownership, particularly for public figures who may be held to higher standards of accountability. As the saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility,” and it appears that Kuzma may need to take a closer look at how he handles his furry friend in the future.
