A rumor circulating about Patrick Mahomes speaking with his fiancée and brother about not coming to his games was quickly refuted on Friday.
It all picked up steam when FOX Sports Radio’s Rich Ohrnberger took to Twitter to report that Mahomes had asked his brother and fiancée not to attend any Kansas City Chiefs games next season, as a result of the pair becoming a “distraction.”
“I’ve been been told Patrick Mahomes had a sit down following the season with his brother and fiancée,” Ohrnberger wrote. “Ultimately it concluded with him asking them to not attend any games this upcoming season.”
Ohrnberger added, “Mahomes believes that Jackson and Brittany have become a distraction, and their sideline antics are bad for his brand.”
Just an hour after the wild rumor began circulating on social media, a source close to Mahomes told TMZ Sports that the report is fake news.
“The conversation simply never happened,” the insider said. “Patrick can’t wait to have his loved ones cheering him on in 2022.” Patrick Mahomes also posted a tweet that seems to agree with the fact that the conversation never actually happened
Y’all just be making stuff up these days 😂😂😂
