NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. vehemently denies assaulting a woman by grabbing her throat at LA’s premier nightspot
Odell Beckham Jr. has strongly denied the sexual assault allegations after it was alleged that he grabbed a woman by the neck at an LA nightclub.
Representatives for the 30-year-old NFL superstar, who recently signed a new $18 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens, said they had not been contacted by police and were not aware of any investigation into the claims — denying any alleged misconduct.

You know, we can redo your operation right now.” And this was week 9 of the season.’
