Colin Kaepernick Girlfriend Nessa Denies Reports Jay-Z Spoke To Kaepernick Before Signing The NFL Partnership Deal

Jay-Z says he talked to Colin Kaepernick before he signed his new partnership with the NFL — but that’s something Colin’s camp strongly denies.

TMZ PUBLISHED:

Some thought Jay — by signing on to help the NFL with entertainment and social justice issues — was undercutting Kap’s cause … but both Jay and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed that Wednesday at Roc Nation’s NYC offices.

The two men sat next to each other and discussed the partnership with about 30 invited media members. Referring to Kaepernick and other NFL players kneeling during the anthem, Jay said … “I think that we forget that Colin’s whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice so in that case this is a success — this is the next thing. There’s two parts of protest: the protest, and then there’s a company or individual saying ‘I hear you, what do we do next?’ For me it’s about actionable items, what are we gonna do about it?”

As you know, Kaepernick still doesn’t have a job in the NFL, and Goodell was asked if he’s been blackballed. He said “any team” can sign him. Both Jay-Z and Goodell said they had spoken to Kaepernick ahead of Tuesday’s announcement they’d be teaming up. However, neither would reveal what Kaepernick said.

As far as whether Kapernick would be involved in the partnership — where the NFL will support Jay-Z’s social justice cause and Jay will produce the Super Bowl Halftime Show — Jay said, “You’ll have to ask him, I’m not his boss. That’s for him to say.”

Goodell and Jay seemed like an old friends … shaking hands and laughing through the event.

Following the conference, Colin Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, went on record saying that despite what Jay said in the meeting, Colin did NOT talk to Jay-Z prior to his partnering with the NFL.

Colin’s girlfriend, Nessa, also came out and called Jay-Z liar for stating he talked to Colin before making that deal.

Nessa has been retweeting negative tweets on the partnership — as well as Eric Reed, Colin’s BFF, who claims that Colin isn’t part of the deal whatsoever.
