A source close to Kim Kardashian is slamming a NFL Network report that suggests during the genesis of Kim Kardashian’s romance with Kanye West, the brunette beauty had her eyes on upcoming-and-coming NFL star, Robert Griffin III.
The rumor was allegedly started by Jack Burditt, executive producer of 30 Rock. Burditt reportedly revealed during a podcast that Kardashian was very inquisitive about the Washington Redskins quarterback while they taped a season finale for the NBC sitcom.
“She sat next to me, while we were watching the show on the monitor,” Burditt said, “and RG3 is a few seats down, and during the commercial break, she starts asking me questions about him. Like, ‘Now, he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, ‘yeah, yeah.’ And Kim says, ‘And he just … something big happened, right?’ I’m like, ‘Well, yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight.’ And she asks, ‘And what team?’ … [and I say] ‘Washington.’ Then she asks, ‘What’s Washington?’ … [and I say] ‘Redskins.’”
She goes, ‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, ‘You stay away from him. This is a nice young man.’ Her inner alarm was going off.”
If this were true, it does not prove Kim was romantically interested in the Baylor star — maybe she was just curious about who the hell he was. Regardless, a source close to Kim tells RumorFix that rumors she had her eyes locked on RG3 are bologna. “This is 100 % not true!!!! It’s absolutely made up and ridiculous!” the source proclaims.
Kim and Kanye look pretty damn happy together, and we really can’t imagine her trying to hook up with someone as high profile as RG3 behind Kanye’s back.
