If you haven’t heard of Patriots S Bret Lockett, you might want to start boning up on him now, because apparently, he had a five-month affair with Kim Kardashian.
That’s what he told In Touch (via TMZ.com) magazine anyway, and today, when contacted by NESN.com, he confirmed the report.
“The story in the tabloid is true,” Lockett told the website.
This is a problem for Kardashian – whose attorney is threatening to sue In Touch – because she’s currently engaged to NBA player Kris Humphries.
Lockett, in case you need a refresher (or a “fresher,” I suppose) is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound safety out of UCLA.
He wasn’t drafted in 2009, and he signed with the Browns as a free agent.
Cleveland waived him before the start of the season, and the Patriots picked him up and played him in 10 games (he had two defensive tackles and five tackles on special teams).
He missed all of last season with a chest injury.
But that’s OK. It sounds like he knows just where to go to make himself feel better.
