Cristy West Is from Mobile, Alabama, Too
Cristy West was born on April 19, 1992 to Chantal Lambert and is from Mobile, Alabama. She’s occasionally referred to as “Christy West” in the media, but she spells her name as “Cristy” on all social media.
West attended CF Vigor High School, graduating in 2010. Her high school isn’t very far from LeFlore Magnet High School, the alma mater of DeMarcus Cousins and his new wife, Morgan Lang.
West went on to major in physical science at Auburn University at Montgomery.
West Has a Son with DeMarcus Cousins
According to several reports, West and Cousins dated when they were in high school. Sometime into their relationship, she got pregnant with their first child.
Their son, Amir, was born in 2012. Cousins also has a daughter, Vana, from another relationship.
From the looks of her social media, Amir lives with his mother after West and Cousins broke up. But he also spends time with his father. Cousins is closely guarded when it comes to his family, so there are very few pictures of him with his son.

Audio of Cousins Allegedly Threatening West Leaked
Cousins married Morgan Lang on August 24 in Atlanta, the details of which were exclusively revealed in People. But reports claim that Amir was not present at his father’s wedding.
Then, on August 27, TMZ made an audio recording public in which a man thought to be Cousins is heard allegedly threatening West to allow their son to his wedding.
The audio recording is of an alleged phone call between West and Cousins on Friday, August 23. In it, Cousins, TMZ claims, is heard saying, “I’m gonna ask you this one more time before I take it to another level. Can I have my son here, please?”
When West refuses, the man on the other end says, “I’m gonna make sure I put a bullet through your f*****g head.”
West told police in Mobile, Alabama that her son’s father made death threats against her the day before his wedding. She also claimed there was a previous instance where Cousins got abusive with her.
She has reportedly filed for a restraining order against Cousins to protect herself and her son. However, she is willing to allow him supervised visits with Amir.
The investigation is currently ongoing and more details are awaited. Meanwhile, the Lakers issued a statement saying they are looking into the allegations as well.
