Yasiel Puig receives death threats

  • Los Angeles star Yasiel Puig received death threats from smugglers who helped him leave Cuba on a speedboat. 

    Documents reveal that unpaid debts to smugglers and threats have followed the star since he left Cuba in 2012. Boxer Yunior Despaigne said he's scared to be hurt by these people or their men if Puig doesn't pay them the money he owes. 

    "The man pushed me up against my car and pressed a pistol to my liver and told me to tell Puig if he didn't pay them, that they would kill him," Despaigne said. The documents don't reveal as to when the threat was made.
