New York Giants player Odell Beckham is at the center of a brewing controversy that centers around a troubling Snapchat video and pizza.
You can’t make this stuff up.
While the charismatic football star was on a Nike-sponsored trip to Europe Odell Beckham appears in a video with aspiring French model, Laura Cuenca. In the video it appears that she’s holding a credit card while cutting up a suspicious white substance. Beckham is sitting close by on a bed with a cigar of some sort in hand, while in front of a pizza box.
Say it ain’t so, Odell!
New York Giants officials have reportedly already reached out to Cuenca to question if Beckham was engaged in drug activity.
Cuenca took to Instagram to flatly deny the allegations writing:
“No. He did not take any drugs!” an adamant Cuenca reportedly wrote in her native French during a private exchange on Instagram to New York Daily News.
When asked if there were any drugs in the room, however, Cuenca chose not to respond. When asked to clarify what Odell Beckham was holding, Cuenca told the NY Daily News it was “a piece of pizza.”
The Giants acknowledged to the Daily News that they are aware of the video but did not have any comment beyond that.
Cuenca, who was first identified by her Instagram handle @ellcnc by Black Sports Online, said she met Odell Beckham in a Paris nightclub but claims she didn’t know he was a football star.
Odell Beckham took to Twitter Friday morning and tweeted: “Old news still makes a good story….I guess. #CatchUpWereIn18” alluding to the fact that the video was old.
But Cuenca insisted that the video was a recent one.
