Professional athletes really should be more selective of the company that they keep. Just because a person smiles in your face that doesn’t make them your friend.
Once you sign that multi-million dollar contract you automatically become a target. Whether it’s the jack boys who want to rob you, family members begging, or groupies trying to have your baby for a quick pay day. Everyone has their scope aimed at you.
When you’re a celebrity it doesn’t take much to get your name in the news. All you have to to is be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whenever something goes wrong you’re gonna catch the blame for it, guilty or not, because you have the biggest name and the most money.
