The ongoing feud between Australian WNBA star Liz Cambage and Andrew Bogut has taken another turn, with the Opals star today saying the former NBA champion has an “obsession” with her.
Over the years the pair have exchanged barbs publicly on social media, often tongue-in-cheek in nature, but sometimes cutting a bit too close to the bone.
Bogut in a recent interview claimed one of the pair’s recent back and forth exchanges was all for show and nothing to be taken seriously.
“We were texting back and forth all week leading up to that,” Bogut told news.com.au.
“We’re really close. We thought we’d just light a little firecracker in the media.
“We’ve been texting and laughing about it… it’s been great.”
Seeing the comments made today, Cambage teed off on Twitter and denied the pair had any positive relationship.
“Wow,” she wrote in a tweet accompanied with a screenshot of Bogut’s quotes. “I do not have your number, I have literally never spoken to you away from a BA [Basketball Australia] event.
“This obsession is just f—ing weird. And my name still in your mouth… get a f—ing life.”
The pair’s war of words dates back to 2016 when a Twitter spat occurred after Cambage took offence to comments made by Bogut when she attended a Black Lives Matter rally in Melbourne.
Bogut changed his tune days after his original comments and admitted he “did some research” on the matter, but the feud continued.
While some of it could well be considered tongue in check, Bogut in recent times has mocked Cambage over her DJ-ing and hit back at her strong stance against an Olympics photo shoot that she said lacked diversity.
In return the Opal has called the former Golden State Warrior “washed up” and “disrespectful”.
