“I was afraid of my job, my safety and what my job would be.”

She claims she has spent years trying to move past the event and “bury it” – but she couldn’t. She says she finally collected the courage to tell her story.

4:40 PM PT – Kelli Tennant became emotional while telling her story … telling how she thought Walton “would rape her” during the meeting with the hotel.

Tennant says she asked Walton as crazy to let her go but he ignored her grounds … until he finally gave up and let her out of the hotel room.

“This type of behavior cannot be tolerated,” Tennant said.

4:33 PM PT – Kelli says that the alleged sexual assault took place in 2014, when she was 25 years old.

Her lawyer says she was uncomfortable in the future but she is comfortable now.

Kelli says she met Luke Walton about 10 years ago through the volleyball community.

The woman accuses Luke Walton about sexual assault will talk to the media at 4.30 pm … and TMZ Sports will be live broadcast of the whole thing.

Kelli Tennant and her lawyer, Garo Mardirossian hold a press conference at her Los Angeles office, they announced. They both plan to talk.

Mardirossian has just issued a press conference edition saying: “Through this trial, Mrs Tennant talks and says #timesup to the culture of abusing women in the NBA.”

We broke the story … Tennant – a prolonged sports rep – claims that Walton sexually surprised her in a hotel in Santa Monica while he was an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors.

Walton has a lawyer and denied the charges – with his lawyer attacked the prosecutor as an “opportunist”.

There are TONER of unanswered questions … what was the attack date? Is there any photo of video evidence? Witnesses? Etc.
