Here’s a first – a professional athlete going straight to TMZ instead of them uncovering some embarrassing and damaging video or story.
That’s just what Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel did Thursday, adamantly telling the site that details of his fight with his ex-girlfriend at the Hotel ZaZa in downtown Dallas early last Saturday morning are completely false.
Manziel says he did not strike Colleen Crowley during the incident, as was reported earlier. “It didn’t happen,” he told TMZ.
The much-maligned QB, who reportedly be released by the Browns next month, added “I have great things coming ahead” … though he didn’t expand on what those things are.
“I know I’ve been having fun but I just need to get my body right.”
“I’m 100% committed to playing football.”
