Basketball player DeMarcus Cousins threatened to shoot his baby's mother in the head if she didn't let his son attend his wedding, allegedly, and of course this is being framed as him being violent to women.
The thing is, people who shoot people in the head don't announce their intentions to shoot someone in the head. If they did, the victim could easily duck or take off running.
In general, if someone says they're going to fuck you up, it's pretty much guaranteed you're not about to get fucked the fuck up. Especially if it's a man of smaller stature or a woman.
In this case, the alleged threat was obviously just meant as an expression of Cousins' sheer dedication when it comes to taking care of his kids. He's such a devoted father that he'll shoot someone in the head, figuratively speaking.
His baby's mother must be jealous that he's about to marry another woman, and she planted this story in the news to try to throw him under a bus. The fact that she would do something like that, I'd argue, is indicative of the flawed personality that led to her being a single mother in the first place.
