Golden Tate, who’s a wide receiver for the New York Giants, says he’ll eventually collide with Jalen Ramsey, a cornerback for the Los Angeles Rams. But he wasn’t talking about doing it during the course of an NFL game, he meant doing it elsewhere.
That’s because Ramsey has been in a long-term relationship with Tate’s sister Breanna Tate, and they have two children together. Breelyn was born in July 2018 and Brooklyn in September of this year.
Reportedly, Ramsey left Breanna while she was still pregnant, and he hooked up with another woman named Monica Giavanna — who according to her Instagram page is a dancer, performer, model and Penn State University graduate.
Then earlier this week, the Rams player posted a photo of himself with Giavanna and called her his Woman’s Crush Wednesday. She also shared a photo that showed Ramsey carrying her in his arms.
After Ramsey posted his image, someone tagged Tate and wrote, “If I was @ShowtimeTate I would have words with this young fella.”
Tate eventually caught wind of that comment and responded. “He know he gonna have to see me,” he tweeted on Thursday.
The wide receiver also spoke to the New York Post about his sister’s ex and doubled down on his tweet. He also implied that Ramsey mistreated her in the past.
“I’m not happy at all with the disrespect that he’s shown towards my sister and the things he’s done in the past,” said Tate. “But I don’t really want to go too much into it.”
On Friday, Ramsey seemed to respond to his fellow NFL player, and although he didn’t mention his name or Breanna’s, he didn’t seem to care for Tate’s words.
“We live in a society where ignorant people feel they are owed an explanation of what goes on in our day-to-day lives, and why we make the decisions we make,” wrote Ramsey. “We don’t have to answer to anyone but the man above! S**t is beyond overrated.”
Afterward, people weighed in on the controversy on Tate’s Instagram page.
“@jalenramsey you a coward can’t wait to see you play this man treating this man’s sister like garbage what’s wrong with you,” one person wrote.
“Ohhhh i can not wait to see you play against the rams so you can snuff Jaylen in the face for what he did to your sister 😭😭,” wrote another.
But the Giants don’t face the Rams this season at all, so the two players won’t be able to settle things on the field.
