EXCLUSIVE: LaVar Ball/Big Baller Brand Publicist Fired
While LaVar Ball always has a lot to say, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t intrigued by his loquacious commentary.
We have been trying to set up an interview with him for quite some time now and, upon reaching out again, and had been in contact with his publicist (and the publicist for Big Baller Brand), Marissa M., regarding setting up an interview.
We had wondered why we weren’t hearing back from her, and a source close to Marissa recently spoke to us to dish on what’s been going on behind the scenes.
“LaVar’s manager fired Marissa,” the insider exclusively told us, “and told her that she didn’t have the experience that was needed for the job.”
“Marissa was really surprised,” our source added, “as LaVar had always been nice to her. This came abruptly and as a shock.”
When we reached out to Marissa for comment, all she would tell us- aside from confirming that she is no longer working for LaVar/Big Baller Brand and was let go- is that, “I have no ill feelings towards LaVar or his family, regardless of what has happened. I wish them the best.”
It will be interesting to see who is chosen as the next Big Baller Brand/LaVar Ball publicist, and if that person ends up sticking around or getting the axe as well.
