Odell Beckham Jr. was telling the truth all along.

A week ago, the Giants receiver battled claims from Erica Mendez, a woman who said she was his “fiancee,” and claimed that he cheated on her repeatedly. He insisted that the “entire story is fabricated” and “I have never met this person who is making these claims.”

That’s because she doesn’t exist. According to TheBigLead.com, Mendez, who first claimed to be Beckham’s “fiancée” last week in a story on RadarOnline.com, never even existed. TheBigLead confirmed that Mendez is a “fake online persona.”

It’s a persona that’s existed for several months, and those behind it seemed empowered shortly before the NFL draft. That’s when Beckham appeared on NBC’s “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, and Fallon, in a quick skit he did with several soon-to-be NFL rookies, said that Beckham was “engaged to a model.” Beckham smiled during the skit, but the public mention may have empowered those who perpetrated the hoax, and, just weeks later, there was the explosive RadarOnline interview.


In the wake of last week’s events, Beckham had turned everything over to NFL security to explore the situation. According to sources, both the Giants and Beckham also expressed their dissatisfaction to Fallon’s people over the public mention. The Giants have completely believed Beckham’s word throughout the process.

But all along, Mendez did not exist, in a story reminiscent of Manti Te’o’s catfishing saga (except that this time the athlete knew better, even as nobody else seemed to believe him). The online photos that have appeared as Mendez are, according to TheBigLead, photos of two different cousins who live in California.

I'm not sure how this reflects poorly on Beckham or the Giants, it's not his fault the public is composed of idiots. Honestly feel bad for the dude, he did nothing wrong and fame certainly has its pitfalls.
