Brett Favre scandal with Jets reporter and former Playboy model Jenn Sterger
Brett Favre, the all-star quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, has recently been alleged of acts of sexual harassment towards Jenn Sterger, sideline reporter and former Playboy model.
Back in 2008 when Favre was a quarterback for the New York Jets, the website Deadspin.com recently made public allegations that he was guilty of sending inappropriate messages, voice mails and photos via cell phone to a former Jets sideline reporter, Jenn Sterger. Deadspin.com is stating that they have audio and photographic proof of the pictures Favre sent to Sterger and even a third party source who is willing to “reveal all.”
Sterger, the former Jets sideline reporter is a former Playboy Bunny, known for her acting and modeling, and rise to fame as a sports reporter. With looks to kill it’s a no brainer why men would be after this up and coming it girl.
But is she lying about her relationship with Favre just to make herself more famous (as do many groupies) or is she really a victim of another sports celebrity’s sexual scandal?
As of now, the NFL is taking the right legal action in investigating the alleged acts to see if Favre violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy. So far Favre has agreed to cooperate with the league, while Sterger on the other hand has been reluctant to speak about the matter. Because she does not want to acknowledge the charges, it is possible that nothing will happen to Favre. There are rumors however, of a possible suspension, fines, or a law suit from the New York Jets and Sterger.
In the matter of Deadspin.com, if these allegations are false they may be liable to punitive damages since Favre is a well known figure.
For now, Favre has to deal with the negative publicity, which apparently may be causing him to loose focus. As if things couldn’t get any worse, the Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to play against the New York Jets today, which is sure to stir up a great match and an uproar from the crowd.
When asked by a reporter of the alleged scandal on October 7, 2010, posted by the Huffington Post, Favre said: “I’m not getting into that. I’ve got my hands full with the Jets and am trying to get some timing down with our guys, so that’s all I’m going to discuss.”
