NBA legend Paul Pierce seen in shock video 'drinking, smoking and partying with STRIPPERS' despite being married

FORMER Celtics star Paul Pierce faced backlash on social media on Saturday after he was seen drinking and smoking while strippers danced in the background in a live Instagram video.

The ESPN host, 43, streamed the shocking video to his own account in the early hours of Saturday morning, as he received a neck massage from a bikini-clad woman despite his ten-year marriage.

In the video, Pierce takes shots while he films another woman in a bikini twerking on the ground behind him.

He and his friends appeared to be playing poker as they threw chips at the woman dancing.

As he films, the 43-year-old interacted with viewers, telling one woman watching the stream, “You could make some money, girl."

“Stop playing. … Monica, whatcha’ doing? If you’re in L.A., come through," he added.

Viewers commented on the stream reminding the ex-NBA player that he is married and has children but he appeared to remain unfazed.

"What does his wife think?" one asked.

Pierce began to trend on Twitter by Saturday afternoon as the video spread.

 “Forgot to hit that close friends,” Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal quipped.

"Wasn’t expecting to wake up to this Paul Pierce video," one Twitter user joked.

"Paul pierce actin like he just found out he has 3 months left to live lmaoooooooooo," another wrote.

ESPN has not yet commented on the video as social media users claim that he could be disciplined for the raunchy footage.

“Paul Pierce woke up down $100k and with 12 voicemails from ESPN Human Resources,” NBA reporter Tyler Conway wrote.

Pierce, who has been an analyst for ESPN’s Get Up and The Jump, has been married to his wife Julie for ten years.

The couple first began dating during the All-Star weekend back in 2005.

They have two daughters and a son.

Pierce has not yet commented on the backlash to his video.
