KC Chiefs Owner Clark Hunt Team Knew About 3 Violent Incidents … Before Cutting Him

Breaking News

Kansas City Chiefs owner, Clark Hunt, says the team knew Kareem Hunt was involved in 3 violent incidents BEFORE they cut him … but says the TMZ Sports video took things to another level. 

Clark Hunt finally broke his silence about Kareem to the media after the Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday … saying, “We were obviously shocked by the video, like anybody who saw it.”

He added, “We’d had some issues with Kareem not being truthful with what happened that night and we just really felt for everybody’s best interests we needed to head in a different direction.”

As we previously reported, Kareem has been accused of getting violent on 3 separate occasions during the NFL off-season — allegedly attacking a man at a nightclub in January, the hotel incident in February and another altercation at an Ohio resort in June.

“We did know about [those incidents], yes,” Clark Hunt said … “We were familiar with all 3 of the incidents that he had had in the offseason …They’d all been reported to the NFL, and the NFL was investigating them.”

During the media scrum in the Chief’s locker room, Clark Hunt was also asked about the NFL’s investigation into Kareem Hunt … and how the league could do a better job handling similar investigations in the future. 

“I’m not sure I’m at a point right now where I can say there was a breakdown and specifically what that breakdown was. The league has spent a lot of time and resources trying to build a department that can handle these types of situations.”

“Obviously, it’s imperfect. I’m not sure you can ever reach perfection. There are limitations on the type of information that league security people are able to get, and I’m not sure that we can change that.”

Clark Hunt was also asked if Chiefs’ draft scouts ever saw any red flags when it came to Hunt’s off-the-field actions before they took him in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. 

“Our staff felt comfortable with taking him, otherwise we would not have selected him,” Hunt said.

“Our scouting staff does a really good job of vetting players. And part of that analysis is their character. Obviously, it’s very hard to learn everything about somebody. Sometimes you have somebody who in college didn’t have any incidents and they get to the pro level and with the fame and fortune and so forth that comes with the position, they do something that you don’t expect.”

“So we’re certainly going to try to get better, but I don’t think you can ever be perfect in that regard.”

Despite leaving on bad terms, Clark Hunt says the organization is still rooting for Kareem to better himself

“I think the most important thing for Kareem is that he get some counseling that can help him with his issues …. and I heard today that there was a report that he was going to do that, and certainly we wish the best for Kareem in the future. I hope that at some point he’s able to come back to the National Football League, not sure when that will be.”

“But, our message to him was that even though we’re having to part ways with you today, we’re still supportive of you. and if you need us to get you some help off the field, we’re willing to do that.”

Kailyn Lowry: I Knew I Never Should Have Married Javi Marroquin!

Kailyn Lowry has always been open about her feelings … super, super open.

And now, in her upcoming book, she's being more open than ever.

In some new excerpts from the book, titled A Letter of Love, she writes about her relationship with Javi Marroquin, and how it's evolved over the years.

Let's just say that this girl is holding nothing back …

1. These Crazy Kids

Have Kailyn and Javi ever just had a calm, non-dramatic relationship? No, right?

2. A Romance for the Ages

They met in 2011, when Javi kept creeping on her while she worked in the mall, and things just gotten crazier and crazier since then.

3. Moving Fast

They got married in September of 2012, and just over a year later, their son, Lincoln, was born.

4. Not So Great

Things were never really good between them, or at least they weren’t on Teen Mom 2. He seemed a little too controlling, and they just never really seemed to have fun together much at all.

5. So Sad

In 2015, she got pregnant again, but she ended up having a miscarriage, and in his grief, he blamed her for it.

6. The End

That was the final nail in the coffin — or one of them, at least — and they filed for divorce that December.

Jenelle Evans: My Son Would NEVER Call Me a Piece of S–t If He Actually Knew Me!

If you watched Teen Mom 2 this week, then you know what a roller coaster ride of an episode it was.

We got to see Chelsea Houska do a sweet little gender reveal for her husband, Cole DeBoer, which was adorable and wonderful and precious.

But then we saw Leah Messer discuss her daughter’s increasing health problems, which, as always, was positively heartbreaking.

Briana DeJesus was dealing with her breakup with Javi Marroquin, which was pretty whatever, but the best part of her segments was her sister, Brittany, comforting her while on painkillers after a wisdom tooth removal.

Kailyn Lowry’s segments dealt with Javi too, but we also got to see Isaac’s birthday — so cute!

And then there’s Jenelle Evans.

In the previous episode we’d learned that David Eason had just been fired, so of course in this week’s show, Jenelle explained that he’d just been refusing to film for his own personal reasons.

In another scene, she gave us a good example of her lack of parenting skills when she explained to her mother Barbara that she hadn’t given Jace his medication because he was “fine,” because that’s how medicine works.

She also didn’t return the medication she didn’t give him to Barb.

Barbara asked Jenelle out to lunch, but Jenelle shut her down because she was too busy, and then we saw Jace and Barb back at home.

He told her that Jenelle didn’t allow him to call her, which is awful, and then he told her that the whole family had gone out on the boat for a big, fun day.

Well, the whole family minus Kaiser, who they stuck in daycare.

Barbara was upset at that news, because it doesn’t sound fair to exclude poor Kaiser when they actually do something fun. She said that it broke her heart.

And then Jace actually said “Mommy and David are pieces of sh-t.”

Barbara looked shocked and asked him what he’d said, so he repeated himself, and he spit on the ground for good measure.

She didn’t say anything, because what can you say after something like that? Then the episode ended.

A lot of Teen Mom 2 fans had a lot of feelings about the moment — most were as shocked as Barb was.

Some thought that he was repeating something he’d heard from her, but others thought that the phrasing sounded something more like David would say, particularly with the spitting on the ground for emphasis.

Regardless, most people agreed that it really did seem like he was fully aware of what he was saying, and that he meant it.

Since it was the last scene of the episode, and since the next episode obviously hasn’t aired yet, we don’t know how Barbara ended up dealing with what Jace said, or if Jenelle heard about it before watching the episode.

But since Jenelle is Jenelle, she’s discussing the issue on Twitter in the dumbest manner possible.

Early this morning, she tweeted “If Jace lived with me he wouldn’t have ever spoke those words about ANYONE.”

“Thought me and my mom were actually building our relationship lately and now it’s two steps back.”

There are approximately a million things wrong with this one short tweet, but let’s try to break it down anyway, all right?

For one, why is she blaming her mother for this?

Sure, Jace may have heard the sentiment from her originally, but it’s not like she forced the kid to say it.

And since this was filmed several months ago, it shouldn’t have an impact on any progress their relationship is making now.

Also, why on earth does she think that anyone would actually believe that Jace wouldn’t talk like this if he lived with her?

We’ve seen Jenelle and David both be absolutely horrible to all kinds of people — David’s called Kaiser a “screaming little bitch,” he’s called Dr. Drew a “f-g,” and it’s impossible to keep up with all the names he’s called Nathan Griffith.

Throughout the years we’ve seen Jenelle say awful things about Barbara in front of Jace, too.

If Jace lived with Jenelle and David, he’d almost certainly being saying worse about several people.

And let’s be real, it’s not like Jace was wrong in his original statement, anyway.

Does she forget that she’s been on a reality show for the better part of a decade and that lots of people are familiar with her life and her personality?

Because anyone who’s ever seen like ten minutes of her footage would be able to tell you that her statement on this subject is absolute nonsense, and it’s a little embarrassing that she’s trying to act like she could raise Jace better than Barbara is.

Jenelle, just … stop, girl. Just stop for a little bit.
