But a source told us that Beckham — in town for the big game as an ESPN pregame commentator — was robbed of “jewelry and cash.” Rumors even swirled that he was mugged. “It was basically catching him outside at the right time,” said a source of the alleged heist.
A source close to the Giants confirmed that the star wide receiver was indeed robbed, but he said it was not a mugging at all and nothing “pricey” was taken. The team source explained that Beckham was staying at a hotel in Houston, but that he also left a bag of his belongings at a friend’s house. (As one does?)
“He just had some stuff there,” the source said. “Shoes and that sort of thing. It wasn’t anything expensive — just some of his belongings.” The source said that the home was broken into and that Beckham’s stuff was gone.
In 2014, Beckham revealed that he owns more than 100 pairs of sneakers, including a $5,000 pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red Octobers.” He’s also known for customizing his cleats.
Local police told us they had no reports filed by Beckham, who frequently posts off-the-field pics of himself on Instagram wearing gold chains and bracelets.
In November, he lost a $25,000 diamond pinky ring, which flew off while he was dancing at a strip club.
OBJ does not end well.
