The Artist Formerly Known As GorillaBeas Wants You To Know He Doesn’t Carry A Purse

After signing with Phoenix as a free agent last Summer, F Michael Beasley had a rather curious yard sale at his previous Minneapolis home (“B-Easy’s B-zarre Garage Sale, 8/20/12).  At the time, Fox Sports North’s Joan Nisen wondered, “Why does Michael Beasley need a copy of the Physicians’ Desk Reference? Or a book of Ingmar Bergman screenplays? Or giant glass grapes? What use does Beasley have for a floral headboard? Why does he love tasseled pillows so much? Whose handbags are those?”  Speaking today with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Jerry Zgoda, the former T-Wolves star insists it’s just stuff someone else left laying around.

Beasley sold some of his belongings last summer in an estate sale at the Orono home he rented during his two seasons in Minnesota. It made news nationally for its eclectic mix of items.

A lot of that stuff wasn’t mine, like purses and earrings and stuff,” he said, referring to a company he hired for the sale that brought other items into the house. “That kind of messed up my street cred. I’m a gangster on the street. I had some stuff that wouldn’t fit into my house here, so we just sold it. A lot of the furniture was mine. The dresses and purses? Not mine.”
