Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson accompanied his reported girlfriend Laura Harrier to the Directors Guild Awards on Saturday, and Harrier was spotted wearing some extremely expensive looking jewelry.
Sports gossip blog Terez Owens reported that Thompson had purchased the diamond-studded necklace for Harrier, and claimed that the piece cost upwards of $100,000. Harrier has since taken to Twitter and denied that Thompson had purchased the jewelry for her, suggesting instead that it was part of partnership with the luxury brand Bulgari.
Hey fake news! 1- My name is Laura 2- I’m wearing that jewelry as part of my partnership with Bulgari 3- Please don’t fabricate stories about me or my relationship (which you know nothing about) again. Thanks!! — Laura Harrier (@LauraHarrier) February 3, 2019
Harrier told the sports gossip website to stop fabricating stories about her relationship with Thompson in her response on Twitter.
The 28-year-old actress and former model has appeared in both Spider Man: Homecoming and Spike Lee's BlackKkKlansman.

Thompson is in his eighth season in Golden State, and the four-time All-Star is averaging 21.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals. He's knocking down 2.9 threes per game at a 38.3 percent clip, a significant step down from his usual production.
The 28-year-old sharpshooter will be a free agent this upcoming offseason and is in line for a massive pay raise. He is currently making just under $19 million this season after inking a four-year, $69 million contract with the Warriors in 2015.
Perhaps after he signs his next contract he'll treat Harrier to some expensive jewelry.
