It appears LiAngelo Ball will not return to the UCLA men’s basketball team. LaVar Ball, LiAngelo’s father, has pulled his son out of the school.
The news comes weeks after President Trump spoke to China’s President Xi on behalf of LiAngelo and 2 other Bruins who made headlines by shoplifting a pair of sunglasses from Louis Vuitton last month.
After the players returned to the United States they were suspended by the school.
The boys sincerely thanked Trump for interceding on their behalf and sparing them from doing hard labor in a Chinese prison.
An ungrateful LaVar then refused to thank President Trump which resulted in an exchange of insults on Twitter.com.
According to TMZ Sports, LaVar believed the suspension was unfair, especially since the charges were dropped. LaVar’s people tell TMZ Sports the famous dad thinks, “There’s no need to break down a kid’s spirit for making a mistake.”
TMZ’s sources say LiAngelo is not officially withdrawn from the school but he’s at home and will not return to UCLA. LiAngelo never played a game for the talent-heavy team.
