In the midst of trade talks surrounding Zion Williamson, the New Orleans Pelicans have now been dragged into the superstar's off-court drama with adult film star Moriah Mills.

Recent reports suggest that the team's efforts to unload Williamson may be hindered by his current circumstances and his former girlfriend is one of the main contributors to the alleged drama.

Last week, Williamson's former girlfriend and adult film star, Moriah Mills, publicly criticized the basketball sensation after he announced that he was expecting a child with another woman. Mills' disapproval sparked a wave of controversy, putting a strain on their relationship.

However, the drama did not end there. One week later, Mills has taken her grievances a step further, issuing a threat that could potentially tarnish Zion's trade value.

She has claimed that she possesses private and intimate videos of the couple and is considering leaking them to the public.

Sources indicate that Mills may be motivated by a desire to obtain financial support from Williamson.

The ongoing social media outbursts from Moriah Mills have frustrated fans, who have grown tired of witnessing her complaints on Twitter.

With the trade discussions surrounding Zion Williamson already in motion, this off-court turmoil adds another layer of complexity to the situation.

Both the New Orleans Pelicans organization and Williamson's camp are undoubtedly seeking a swift resolution to this saga, as they aim to alleviate distractions and refocus on the future of the talented NBA player. As trade talks progress, it remains to be seen how this off-court drama will impact Williamson's market value and the team's decision-making process.

The next few weeks will be crucial for all parties involved, as they work towards finding a resolution that allows everyone to move forward.
