A Virginia college student and a former Hooters waitress has reportedly offered to sell “inappropriate” photographs of newlywed NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Meredith Barber, a self-professed Washington Redskins fan, posted texts online she claims were sent by Griffin on his wedding day earlier this month. Barber, who said one of the photographs includes Griffin, 23, exposing his penis, turned down an offer of $500 for all of the photographs except the most revealing shot, BustedCoverage.com reports.
Barber sent the website a photo of a shirtless man — whose head is not revealed — she purports is Griffin and claimed to have several others. In an email exchange posted on the website, Barber told the website’s editor, Joe Kinsey, that she would grant him full access to the story and the photographs if he would make her anonymous for the sake of her reputation and family.
“Just give me an offer before I shop it around,” Barber wrote, according to the email exchange published on BustedCoverage.com.
Griffin, who married longtime girlfriend Rebecca Liddicoat in Denver on July 6, has several endorsement deals thanks in large part to his clean image, including pacts with Adidas, EA Sports, Gatorade, Nissan and Subway. He has yet to publicly comment on the allegations while on his honeymoon in Europe.
