The mystery woman who appeared alongside Odell Beckham in the viral video that blew up the internet Friday exclusively told the New York Daily News that the star receiver did not take any drugs, but refused to comment if drugs were present in the room.
Laura Cuenca, an aspiring French model, told The News on Saturday despite the suspicious nature of the video, Beckham did not partake in any illegal substances.
“No. He did not take any drugs!” an adamant Cuenca wrote in her native French during a private exchange on Instagram.
When asked if there were any drugs in the room, however, Cuenca chose not to respond.
Beckham allegedly seen with brown cig, white powder in video
In the video, Beckham is seen holding what looks like a thick brown cigarette in his left hand. The camera then quickly pans to a woman sitting next to him holding what appears to be a credit card in front of a powdery white substance.
Cuenca did not confirm or deny when asked directly if the white substance was cocaine.
When asked to clarify what exactly Beckham is holding, Cuenca told The News it was “a piece of pizza.”
A box of pepperoni pizza can be seen in front of Beckham on the bed.
Cuenca said she has been contacted from someone within the Giants organization since the video was published but did not elaborate further on the specifics of the conversation.
The Giants acknowledged to the Daily News that they are aware of the video but did not have any comment beyond that. Beckham’s agent had not responded to a request for comment as of late Friday night.
In the brief clip, the 25-year-old Beckham is heard talking to Cuenca about “trying to get you to sleep with…” before the video cuts out.
Cuenca, who was first identified by her Instagram handle @ellcnc by Black Sports Online, said she met Beckham at Le Queen nightclub in Paris, France. It’s unclear how long Beckham’s trip to Paris lasted.
Beckham has not posted to Twitter or Instagram since the video was released.
