The bad boy ballplayer was caught looking at the butt of a thong-clad brunette stripper, according to the New York Post.
Morant reportedly left $50,000 in cash tips during his two-day spree, covering every inch of the private VIP room he had rented in banknotes.
Grizzlies guard Ja Morant spent $50,000 and drooled on a stripper who did a lap dance on him at Shotgun Willie’s in Match 2, the same strip club where he flashed a gun two days later.
Morant appeared to be holding a gun in an Instagram Live video in the early morning of March 4.
‘The whole room is full of money, it’s literally a lot. You’d need a rake,’ a source who witnessed the bawdy display told The Post.
While one dancer is said to have recalled her colleague saying it “took forever to count.”
Morant arrived at Shotgun Willie’s with a friend and two security guards around 1:30 a.m., just 80 minutes after the Grizzlies’ team plane landed in Denver, according to the inside source.
Memphis had come back from their 113-99 blowout of the Houston Rockets and Morant clearly wanted to celebrate by charging “at least $900 to reserve space for three hours.”
The scandalized star is said to have slipped into the VIP room through the back door.
“He was there for the party, he wanted some girls in the room,” the source said. “The music was very, very gangster.”
While at the strip club, Morant seems to have kept himself more than entertained. She reportedly paid for four dancers and a feast of food, including “a basket of hickory-smoked wings, two plates of chicken tenders and fries, and a steak.”
He reportedly hit the club for the second time after the Grizzlies’ resounding 113-97 loss to the Nuggets.
The NBA star is said to have charged at least $900 to rent out the club’s VIP lounge.
Morant is a big name in the NBA, but he’s been involved in a number of different controversies.
After recording 23 points in the loss, Morant made a beeline for Shotgun Willie’s in the early morning hours of March 4 when she, now infamously, filmed herself posing topless dangling a gun in front of the camera and sang the lyrics to ‘Bring ‘Em Out. ‘. from rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
Deborah Dunafon, 72, the majority owner of Shotgun Willie’s, said Morant had been “respectful” and “wonderful.”
‘This boy, very young, was exceptionally respectful and sweet and did not drink [on his second visit]’ Dunafon said. ‘We had [Denver] Nuggets and Broncos… go in and give the girls rooms, be disrespectful and nasty. It is wonderful.
However, a dancer, who was apparently not in the back room but heard reports of the incident from her colleagues, said the gun “absolutely terrified” the girls in the private room.
She said Morant “pulled out the white boy excuse card” by stating he was “going through a lot.”
Dunafon said she and police reviewed security footage of the incident and claimed “no one saw a weapon.”
Morant was investigated by Glendale police for the incident, but was not charged with any crime.
Although he does not face charges by the police, Morant could still face more punishment from the NBA.
In the aftermath of the video’s release, Morant was suspended for two games by the Grizzlies. He later revealed that he would be “taking time away” from the team.
Morant issued a statement apologizing to his family, teammates and fans for his actions.

New details from police interviews obtained by The Washington Post revealed that the 17-year-old told Shelby County Sheriff’s Office detectives that the point guard hit him “12 to 13 times,” adding that the friend of Morant hit him “four to 13 more times.” five times.’
The teen claimed that when he got up to leave after the fight, Morant entered his home and reappeared with a gun.
In a baffling incident just days after the report was released, Morant sparked even more controversy, this time at an NBA game, when he held a guns celebration after watching a teammate shoot a 3-pointer.
In addition, there was an ugly incident after the Grizzlies’ game with the Pacers on January 29, when Ja Morant’s acquaintances ‘aggressively confronted’ members of the Indiana traveling party and pointed a red laser at them.
the athletic saying that Morant was traveling with his friend Davonte Pack and another person in an SUV when a red laser was pointed at the Pacers bus.
Two people who spoke to the publication anonymously said they believed the laser was attached to a weapon, while a nearby Indiana security guard said “that’s 100 percent a weapon.” However, it has not been confirmed if the laser was attached to a weapon.
