Mario Menounos claims she was kicked out of an NBA Finals game in 2010 after Jack Nicholson apparently ordered it.

Menounos, the host of “Extra” and a Boston Celtics fan, was ousted from her seat at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, she said on “Conan.”

“We made it our business, our second job to go to all these games and really rally for our team,” she said on the show. “And all of a sudden — we’re courtside. I’m screaming, going crazy — I get booted! These guys come and pull us out! I’m like ‘What is going on?'”

She later talked to Nicholson, who is a die-hard Lakers fan.

“He’s like ‘I see they moved your seat’ He got me kicked out! I heard later he called [late Lakers owner] Jerry Buss and had me removed,” she said.
