Mia Khalifa Says She And Texans Quarterback Deshaun Watson Are ‘Just Friends’

It’s a big day for Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans. Watson will get his first career NFL start on his birthday as the Texans play the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football.

An early-season game on primetime television is pressure enough, I suppose, but noted sports fan Mia Khalifa also appears to be a Deshaun Watson fan. The former adult film actress and current “DC Sports Girl” tweeted a birthday greeting to Watson that included a video of the two playing basketball together in her home.

In the video, Khalifa dribbles a small basketball and attempts to dunk on a very short net attached to a door. Instead, Watson is standing in front of it and blocks the shot.

Happy birthday, @deshaunwatson!” Khalifa wrote. “For the record, I let u block that dunk cause ur a rookie and I didn’t wanna risk hurting you before game 1.”

Khalifa has made a cottage industry out of exposing athletes who have slid into her DMs, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here. According to TMZ, Watson and Khalifa are just friends.

We spoke with Mia who tells us there’s nothing but serious friendship goin’ on … and it all started over a home-cooked meal when Deshaun moved to H-Town.

Mia says she lives close to Watson and, with him being new to the area, she invited him to her place for some hospitality … and they’ve been tight ever since. No sex though.

If that’s the case, consider Watson in a very envious position. There’s been plenty of dunking when it comes to Khalifa over the years, but few actually get to hang out with her.
