"I'm not trying to buy her off. She just has a lump sum to help her move on."
I looked at that statement by Richard Jefferson in regards to the six figure lump sum he paid to his former fiancé' Kesha Ni'cole Nichols.
The same Kesha Ni'cole Nichols that Jefferson left standing at the alter by breaking up with her via email.
For a long time as I stared at the statement I had the Chris Webber face.
What part of the game is this?
Seriously what part of the game is this?
Does he understand he has set back not just athletes, but men in general at least 100 years?
When will athletes learn you just can't buy your way out of everything. Richard Jefferson should have been a man about the situation from the beginning, but the fact is he screwed up and thinks money is going to make it all go away. In reality he just set the "free agent" market for groupies. Wouldn't be shocked if groupies started to higher Drew Rosenhaus to represent them during breakups.
I remember the good old days when you could just break up with a woman and that would be it. Now if you are an athlete to get rid of your woman you have to pay her to go away.
Am I the only that thinks is the craziest thing of all time?
These young ladies might as well have a credit card machine attached to their G-Strings.
If I break up with a women what will she want from me? Do I have to buy a Coach bag for her not to Twitter about our relationship?
People wonder why so many women are attracted to athletes and this is exhibit A. What other profession can you get $100,000+ just to stay quiet? It is a recession, that's good work if you can get it.
I love this quote from Miss Nichols friend:
"She just wants to keep this as quiet as possible and move on. She's doing just fine."
I would be doing fine too. I am putting it out there for every female in the world to know, if you want to use me up and public humility for $100,000 I am more willing to do it.
There is no truth to the rumor that Lebron was scheduled to be their videographer.
