Royce White's Ex-Girlfriend Claims He Assaulted Her Back in JuneDerick E. Hingle/USA Today Sports

What the hell is going on with NBA players right now?

Late last night, we told you about Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins, who allegedly punched his girlfriend recently before dropping an Xbox on her head. Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was also just arrested on domestic violence-related charges stemming from an incident that took place between him and his girlfriend recently. And now, Royce White's ex-girlfriend Tania Mehra has come out and accused the 76ers forward of assaulting her back in June. Although she initially told police that she suffered a laceration above her eye as a result of an "accidental fall" on June 22, she just went back to the police and told them that she lied about her injury. She said White is actually to blame for the cut.

"The victim said she had lied earlier because the suspect played for the NBA and did not want the incident to damage his career," police told TMZ a short time ago. "The victim stated that White had assaulted her after she became angered by his advances toward her friend."

White has not been arrested yet in connection with the alleged assault. But police are conducting a full investigation and looking into what role White may have played in Mehra's injury.

Peep the thumbs gallery to see a photo of the cut that Mehra suffered during the alleged attack. Not good, Royce, not good.
