NFL Player Accused Of Buying Fake Vaccine Card

ESPN reports:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of obtaining a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The Times reported Thursday that, according to Steven Ruiz — a former personal chef for the wide receiver — Brown had his girlfriend, model Cydney Moreau, reach out to Ruiz over the summer to obtain a fake vaccination card that said Brown had received the Johnson & Johnson shot.

According to text messages provided by Ruiz, Moreau offered $500 for a fake card. Ruiz said he was unable to acquire a fake card for Brown, according to the report, but that the wide receiver a few weeks later showed him ones he had for himself and Moreau that he said he had purchased.

Brown tested positive for COVID early in the season and his lawyer is denying the claim, saying Brown is “healthy, vaccinated, and ready to win another Super Bowl.”

Brown has reportedly been involved in multiple domestic violence incidents and has twice been sued for sexual assault.

Last year he received two years probation for the felony assault of a moving truck driver.

In 2016 he competed on Dancing With The Stars, finishing fourth. In 2019 he competed on The Masked Singer and was eliminated in the first round.
