New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was caught on Snapchat last week appearing to smoke a blunt in bed with a model.
Alongside a box of pepperoni pizza, Beckham’s apparent gal pal also seems to be using a suspicious substance that folks allege is cocaine in the Snapchat video.
“…Tryna get you to sleep with [sombody],” he appears to say in the clip before Ferfeli kisses the sleeping athlete at the end.
The New York Post reported Friday, March 9, the day the clip went viral, that the Giants were aware of the video and had no other comment.
It’s not clear if the video is new or not, but the WR himself, who hopes to become the NFL’s highest-paid receiver after his rookie contract ends, seemed to indicate it’s an old one.
Old news still makes a good story….I guess. #CatchUpWereIn18’

Yet the model in the clip, identified as Laura Cuenca, of France, told the New York Daily News she recorded the video on Thursday, March 8.
When asked about the apparent marijuana and cocaine in the clip, Cuenca said, Beckham “did not take any drugs!” but she wouldn’t respond when asked if there were drugs in the room. As for what she says Beckham was holding in his hand, she said it was “a piece of pizza.”
The model also said she didn’t find out the man in the clip was Beckham until after the video was uploaded. Once Beckham told her who he was, he asked her to remove it.
The clip went viral regardless and folks online have made their thoughts on it known.
“So Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t allowed to have sex with people who do drugs?” someone tweeted. “What is even the point of being rich and famous then?”
