If you’ve followed sports for any length of time, you probably know that many star athletes find themselves in tricky situations because they didn’t do the right thing. Young and wealthy athletes often can’t say no to attractive women and cheat on their partners. They know it’s the wrong choice but still allow the potential drama to spill into their public lives. When it’s said and done, it taints their public image.
So today, we’ll look at several elite sports stars who made mistakes in their private lives. The drama changed the public’s perception of them and they carry a stigma with them today. There’s everything from Zion Williamson frolicking with OnlyFans stars to Peyton Manning allegedly enjoying himself in a car park, so let’s get started now.
In 2011, ‘Gronk’ rocked the NFL when the photo above emerged. It showed him shirtless while adult film star Bibi Jones wore his jersey. Instantly, the morality police blared their sirens and said that he disgraced the NFL. It didn’t matter that Jones denied that anything happened between her and the tight end.
She admitted that she slept with other athletes but insisted that nothing happened between her and ‘Gronk.’ However, Jones said she wished that something did because she found him attractive. In the end, Gronkowski apologized even though he had no reason to. People are very judgemental about sports stars’ private and public lives, and perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way (via Outsports).
