New England Patriots player Martellus Bennett might’ve happily obliged to join his team in celebrating their huge Super Bowl victory on Sunday night, but the athlete is emphatic about his decision to forego the traditional White House visit in honor of the big win.

Following the game, the tight end, who has been very open about his disdain towards Trump, told reporters that “I’m not gonna go. It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.”

The athlete went on to suggest he isn’t concerned about disappointing the team or the organization’s owners. “I’m not worried about it at all,” he said. “It’s still like my beliefs, I think they (the Patriots) believe whatever I want to do the believe in that.”

According to Bennett, the team agreed early on to keep political talk out of the locker room. “We all have our beliefs,” he said. “The thing is, we accept people for who they are. And that’s the biggest thing about what this country is really about. I don’t really care what you believe. It’s not going to separate me from accepting you for who you are.”

Over the past several months, the eight-year NFL veteran has used Twitter as a platform to speak his mind. “America was built on inclusiveness not exclusiveness,” one tweet read.

Another read: “Be the change you wish to see in the world. If you want a world full of hate be hateful. If you want a world full of love be loving.”

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
