Former NFL quarterback, now activist Colin Kaepernick might have some skeletons in his closet he doesn’t want the world knowing about.
According to the International Business Times, Kaepernick at one point in his career was in a relationship with a transgender woman (also known as a male).
Transgender model Mia Isabella said she and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick were once in a romantic relationship. This is what Mia told ibtimes.com:
“I loved him very much and he cared for me greatly, but in order to protect his brand I made him walk away from me. Knowing the persecution he would face because I’m a Trans woman.”
“If I’m honest I have not been very good to my own heart. I’ve burdened her with heavy truths too great for it to bear. Today I tell the truth,” she tweeted. “During the @Tyga scandal someone outed my connection w @Kaepernick7 to discriminate against and persecute us because I’m a Trans woman.
“There is nothing wrong with loving a Trans woman,” Isabella continued. “It was my heart and soul he loved it wasn’t because of my sexuality. I have to thank @MichaelSamNFL my publicist @misslainie and my grandmother for holding the truths I told them. It hurt me to lose our bond,” she said about Kaepernick, 28.
So uh, I guess San Francisco really made an impact on Kaepernick. Sure, it’s one thing to be an activist for racism, or whatever he’s doing these days… It’s another thing to change teams midway through the game (if you don’t get the joke, ask a friend).
Now, Kaepernick has never mentioned anything about this relationship, so this could be a case of someone seeking their 15-minutes of fame. At the same time, it’s not hard to imagine a guy like Kaepernick getting tricked by a transgendered person, and simply going along with it.
