Last week a video was uploaded to Snapchat that appeared to show New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. laying in a bed with pepperoni pizza. It has since gone viral—and definitely not because of the pizza.
In the clip, Beckham appears to be holding a brown cigarette, believed by some people to be a blunt. Even more damning, the woman in the footage looks like she is using a credit card to cut lines of a white substance. Is it cocaine or another drug?
“Trying to get you to sleep with someone,” Beckham seems to say in the clip. The woman could be seen with a filter over her face.
The Giants said they were “aware of the video’s existence,” according to Fox News. However, they didn’t comment further.
Not long after the video went viral, Beckham took to Twitter for what appears to be a response: "Old news still makes a good story....I guess. #CatchUpWereIn18.”
Aspiring French model Laura Cuenca claims she was the woman featured in the clip. She told the New York Post that the footage was from last week.
“I do not remember all of the evening, only that we met in a bar and then found ourselves at a hotel and we had passed the night together,” she told the publication, adding that the two met at a nightclub in Paris. Last week, the athlete was posting photos on his Instagram from Paris.
It’s unclear when the footage was recorded but the emergence of it last week couldn’t have come at a worse time for the 25-year-old athlete. Right now, Beckham is trying to get a multimillion-dollar extension to his NFL contract, worth about $100 million, NJ.com reported.
Will the new clip cost him millions? That is unclear but people are definitely speculating in light of the scandalous clip.
