Rapaport posted screenshots of the couple’s Instagram direct messages to Twitter and Instagram in which Durant appeared to use homophobic, misogynistic and profane language.
“The [snake emoji] himself threatens me now, brings up my wife and wants to fight. It’s supposed to be America’s sweetheart, isn’t it? “
According to screenshots, the showdown began last year when Rapaport criticized Durant’s post-game interview following the Nets’ season-opening win over the Golden State Warriors in December.
In the messages, Durant insulted Rapaport, 51, and offered to fight the actor, even asking for his address.
CNN has reached out to Durant, Rapaport, the NBA and the Brooklyn Nets for their comment.
Durant could face a fine from the NBA for using homophobic language.
This isn’t the first time Durant has been in hot water for his social media activity. In 2017, he was exposed for using burner accounts to defend himself during his release from Oklahoma City Thunder.
