NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III married longtime girlfriend Rebecca Liddicoat on July 6, and he's already being accused of cheating. Meredith Barber, a student at Virginia Commonwealth University, sent website Busted Coverage texts and a photo she allegedly received from Griffin showing his torso the day of his wedding.
“Come on bae,” the Washington Redskins quarterback allegedly wrote to Barber at 1 a.m. the morning of his wedding, including a blushing smiley icon. He then allegedly sent her a photo that revealed his abdominal muscles; however, the man's face is obscured. When Barber didn't respond, he wrote, “Well ok I give up I guess. See you in a few weeks kid.”
The young blonde is a former Hooters waitress, and on her Twitter account she posted “#TeamRedskins.” The images on her account include the Redskins' football field and an autographed photo of RGIII, Griffin's nickname.
Barber reportedly contacted Busted Coverage and told the site that she had texts and “inappropriate” photos of the football player, which she then tried to sell to the publication. When the site reportedly offered her $500 for the photos, she refused and stopped trying to sell it the information. Later, an anonymous person emailed the site photos purportedly of the two taken using Apple's FaceTime app. It's unclear why the person would use FaceTime and it isn't known if Griffin and Barber have ever met in person.
Griffin hasn't commented on the allegations.
