NFL Player Fights Gay Rumors, Allegedly Says He’s Father of Kardashian’s Baby
Yeezus isn’t going to like this.
The National Football League’s Kerry Rhodes, who is currently a free agent, but was drafted by the New York Jets, has been the recent subject of gay rumors. But some publications say the athlete is denying the pesky rumors by claiming he could be the father of Kim Kardashian’s day-old baby, Bossip reports.
Rhodes, who was also a former safety for the Arizona Cardinals, has denied up and down that he is gay. But his sexual orientation was put in the spotlight when a former male assistant posted photos and videos of the two "hanging out" together.
"If that man don’t own up, I will own up for him! He’s denying me, but we’re looking like the Black Brokeback Mountain starring me and Kerry in some of our pics," the assistant told Bossip. "How is he STILL denying me?!?! I’m going to have to drag that azz out the closet then!"
Just days after Kanye West and Kardashian gave birth to their daughter, Kaidence Donda West, Rhodes, 30, allegedly texted friends that he could be the baby daddy.
"Man this could be my baby!! I was fucking her the same time as K.West was lol!!!" he allegedly wrote.
It could be true - it appears Rhodes and Kardashian are friends. But "friends" of the football player spoke to Bossip and told a different story.
"Kerry wants everyone to think he’s straight," the source said. "He is so desperate that he will drag Kim Kardashian and Kanye West into this drama just so people can associate him with a woman instead of a man. It’s just sad at this point because everyone knows he’s gay..."
In April, Rhodes told TMZ that he is straight, despite the whirlwind of gay rumors.
"Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation," he said. "I am not gay. The shots were taken during a past vacation in a casual environment with my entire business team."
Fox Sports points out that the football player went even further to extinguish the gay rumors by tweeting a photo of him holding hands with what appears to be a woman. The picture is also on his Facebook account and has the caption, "No caption. just real."
