In case this story is a little off your radar, apparently Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond sort-of dated iCarly star Jennette McCurdy for about a week at one point. Then she broke it off, claimed he wasn’t a good kisser and all of a sudden racy pictures of her wound up plastered all over the Internet.
Now Ms. McCurdy claims Drummond leaked those pictures to retaliate because she said some mildly unflattering things about him. The pictures are hardly scandalous, they show her in her underwear but there’s nothing too out there or career-damaging, but it is kind of funny that Drummond was immature enough to leak them because of what she said.
This all started when the 21-year-old McCurdy went on Pete Holmes’ podcast and opened up about the short fling she had with the 20-year-old Pistons player. It all started when Drummond posted her as his “Woman Crush Wednesday” on Twitter, and eventually the two began talking to each other.
McCurdy says they eventually talked on the phone and despite there not being much chemistry, they agreed to hang out when he visited Los Angeles. She claims that after a laser tag date they had their first kiss and she said, “It just didn’t go great…no sparks. The mouths…the shapes weren’t right.” That’s certainly a nice way of saying “it sucked.”
But they continued to hang out for the rest of the week he was in town and at one point before leaving, Drummond bought her a necklace and got down on his knees during a dinner date and asked her to be his girlfriend. She claims she said yes because she couldn’t turn him down like that, but broke it off with him over the phone a few days later.
In response to that interview, Drummond is firing back, claiming McCurdy isn’t telling the whole truth, but then said he was going to be “the mature person and let it die out.” But now McCurdy is claiming the leaked photos were sent to him and that he is the one who leaked them. Yeah, that doesn’t seem like the mature move to me.
Drummond is currently in the middle of his second NBA season. So far this season the UConn product is averaging 13.2 pounds per game and is third in the league in rebounds per game (13.1).
Stepping back for a second, I think it’s fairly clear that Drummond is a 20-year-old dude who has no idea what he’s doing in the dating world. Basically he went a bit overboard for what he thought was his dream girl. Then McCurdy clearly hurt his feelings by going public and basically laughing about their “relationship,” and he fired back by leaking the photos.
Well Andre, good luck getting any semi-famous women to send you lingerie photos in the future. Bad move, my friend.
For the record, I had never heard of Jennette McCurdy or iCarly before this whole thing, but just find it hilarious that an NBA player would act like this over a girl he dated for about a week. It’s pretty priceless.
