23 year old NFL Superstar, Odell Beckham Jr. had a conversation with GQ Magazine, talking about his summer, handling rumors and rivalry. This included spilling tea about his relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
The first 25 games of Odell Beckham Jr.’s career were the best start by a receiver in NFL history. He is a hot new kid on the block.
Odell is a freak athlete whose particular cheat code is the one-handed circus catch; all he needs to grab a football is momentary contact at the subatomic level, and then molecule by molecule, he’ll gather it in.
Here are some of the things he talked to GQ Magazine about below;
On Staying with drake
He spent the summer house-sitting for Drake. The mansion near Calabasas, speciﬁcally, the one Drake has referred to as “the YOLO estate.” Really nice pool. Beckham’s eyes still go wide when he talks about the place, like a man who has seen things. “His house,” Beckham says, “can’t be messed with. Right now, we’re on two different levels.” (Note: “Right now.”)
Beckham passed many hours this spring lying out by that pool, meditating on what it takes to live like this, to own it, to earn what it represents. And he decided that he wasn’t doing enough yet. He noticed the team of people who managed Drake’s house and his affairs, how they made it all work.
He noticed his host’s work ethic, the will to keep going even after you’ve already got this. Mostly he noticed the ruthlessness with which Drake iced out the things, and the people, in his life that didn’t matter. Beckham—a man who ﬁts so neatly into the grand tradition of wide receivers as shit-stirring peacocks that he’s even got the plume—deﬁnitely wasn’t doing that yet.
On Dating Khloe Kardashian
It was yet another example, Beckham says wearily, of people trading on his name, making some easy money by leaking some meaningless photos. “Whoever was there taking the pictures inside of a private party, inside of a private-er, private-er area of the house—we were in the kitchen of the house, where there was only like 15 people. It’s just kind of like…‘dating’? I just met this person. This is maybe the second conversation we’ve had.”
So: Beckham was not, is not, dating Khloé Kardashian—but the rumors did fuck him up with a girl he was seeing. “Things go like that,” he says ruefully, “and then some other girl that I may have been talking to hears about it, and now it’s more drama, more commotion in my life. And I’m sitting here trying to explain my situation to somebody, and it’s really not even a situation.”
