The Big Lead - Odell Beckham Jr. was more than 90 minutes late to an event on Monday morning according to the New York Post. The event was a community event for children at MetLife Stadium and OBJ was late because he reportedly missed a flight on Sunday because he had trouble leaving Coachella.
Yes, Beckham was at the Coachella Festival, doing young people stuff and not thinking about younger people. On Friday, he was seen at an event hanging out with Amber Rose. According to Page 6 they were “flirty.” Beckham and Rose were previously rumored to be dating back in 2015.
Odell Beckham Jr. is having a lot of trouble staying in the good graces of the New York media, and if this was any other player it probably would be a non-story. Odell, knowing that he is a 'multiplier' for headline writers, needs to understand that this type of individual scrutiny will stay consistently on his head until the day he leaves town.
That being said, he also needs to do a better job of making sure these type of stories don't get out (or don't happen at all, ideally) by ensuring that his cards get kept close to his chest. He can't be telling people he was late "for coachella" because that is an attention grabbing admission.
Best of luck this season, Odell. You know it's only April, right?
