Justin Verlander Nude Photo Leak: Baseball Player Nervous Fans Will Harass Him
“The Tigers are in a huge playoff push and every win is extremely important and Justin is very nervous that the Cleveland fans are really going to get in his head and heckle him like crazy and taunt him over the pictures of his girlfriend and him being released. For a pitcher who needs mental toughness, he is scared that he will be rattled if the fans say anything to him over the scandal,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We definitely feel for Justin and Kate at this time. Not only is this a breach of the couple’s privacy, but Justin’s career is now on the line. And that’s not cool.
Kate’s lawyer, Lawrence Shire, confirmed the authenticity of the photos and told HollywoodLife.com: “This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”
Hopefully, Cleveland fans will sympathize with Justin and not heckle him over the nude photos.
