Before we dive into this, we want to stress that this is nothing more than a rumor floating around on the Internet. There is certainly a chance that this is fake, and that this may just be a silly thing that’s making its way around the web.
Having said all of that, this rumor about Johnny Manziel is the most absurd thing that we have ever heard. The tl;dr is that Manziel went to a Las Vegas strip club on Saturday night, called himself Billy and wore “a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses and a hoodie.” Here is the source of the report, a Facebook post from ESPN Las Vegas.
Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie.
Manziel introduced himself as “Billy.” He was there into the 3am hour and when it came time to pay the bill, he asked to have it comped because he didn’t bring cash and also didn’t want to put it on his card.
However, the sources tell us he ended up paying with his card and signing the check.
By 3am he appeared to be enjoying the party scene that Vegas is known to offer.
Manziel is in that weird spot where any story about him could be true, so a story about him going incognito to a strip club in Vegas wouldn’t shock anyone if it was true, even if this seems a little far-fetched on the surface. However, this rumor isn’t just being thrown around by a local ESPN station in Las Vegas. It does seem like there’s a little more to this based on a tweet by Will Burge of WTAM 1100 in Cleveland.
It looks like this story will end up having some kind of proof (or not) in the coming days.
