The details of the footballers controversial relationship, reportedly with a high school student, have come out — and it is being reported the Jets player had no problem with his new gal’s age.
The text message is quickly becoming the achilles heel for football players as yet another questionable relationship, this time reportedly between New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and a 17-year-old high school student (referred to as E.K. in the article), has come to light via old texts and camera phone shots. Deadspin reports, “E.K. told me that Sanchez sidled up to her, and the two talked for a while. She gave him her BlackBerry number and flirted a bit. ‘You know I’m 17, right?’ she remembers saying. Sanchez kept his cool. ‘Well, we can still talk, but I can’t see you until you’re 18,’ he said. ‘Actually,’ E.K. replied, ’17 is legal in New York.'”
Mark soon began to text the girl, leading her to have a major freak out on her Twitter. “MARK F***ING SANCHEZ JUST TEXTED ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
E.K. then told the site that Mark got her and a friend tickets to the Bills-Jets regular-season and the pair made a date for later that week. When asked if she hooked up with Mark she said, “Yeah. We went back to his place in Jersey after dinner. He lives on a golf course. There was a big storm.”
After this E.K. said of their relationship, “He would send me a text at 2 a.m. on a Wednesday asking if I was out that night, but I’d be, like, I have school tomorrow” — where she is most likely a senior.
As proof of the pair’s rendezvous, E.K. sent photos of Mark’s bedroom and the number from which he texted her. Then, however, she got nervous and threatened to sue the site if her story ran. Whoopsies! It seems like E.K. really wanted to stay close with mark and felt that leaking details of her relationship with him would hurt her chances.
The high schooler wrote, “Well I’m still ‘close’ w mark and he knows about you so Jets pr was like here how’s you handle it, I don’t want to betray him but I don’t want to let him play me like this, if this comes out like I technically sold this then I can risk any jobs or college in the future. ”
