This is scandalous. Wild rumor flying around on the socials has it that Jimmy G was traded by the Patriots because he allegedly had relations with the team owner Robert Kraft’s girlfriend Ricki Noel Lander and got her pregnant.
Side Action was the first to report on the rumor.
The Patriots’ traded quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers for a second-round pick back in 2017. There were rumors of a rift between New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick regarding the trade. Apparently Bill wanted to move away from Brady while Kraft wanted to stick with Tom.
Ultimately the owner got his way and Jimmy G was dealt.
Now there’s a brand new rumor floating around the net, and this one is far more scandalous. According to an anonymous tipster on IG account Deuxmoi, the reason Jimmy G was traded had nothing to do with Tom or Belichick, but rather Jimmy G and Robert Kraft’s then girlfriend Rickie Lander. Apparently Jimmy knocked up Kraft’s girlfriend Ricki Noel Lander.
“A few years back, it was rumored that GOAT QB felt threatened by his prospective replacement, which resulted in shock trade of said new talent and major divide in management because head coach wanted to keep him.
The REAL reason for the trade was because QB knocked up owner’s much younger girlfriend. This all tracks…owner publicly claimed to not father the child, traded player is a bust and quarterback legend continues to win with his famed “Take one for the Team” attitude.”
This anonymous tip clearly is referencing Tom, Jimmy G and Robert Kraft. The Happy Ending in the subject line, and the Kraft Macaroni and cheese definitely confirms who the rumor is about. Kraft’s girlfriend did have a baby, and it wasn’t Krafts, that much is true.
BSO was the first to report at the time that Noel Lander was having a kid that wasn’t Kraft, but we never found out who the father was.
Patriots owner Bob Kraft’s girlfriend Ricki Noel Lander had a secret baby. The baby isn’t Kraft’s, but he is taking care of her and the kid.
He purchased a big mansion for her, and there is talk he has put her in his will. His sons are not happy about this. TMZ has video of Kraft, and Lander at a pre-Oscar and he says thank you for being congratulated for the kid that isn’t his.
Kraft has moved on with a new lady, so we aren’t sure if he is still taking care of Noel Lander and her baby.
