Rising NBA point guard Kyrie Irving has been a standout player for the Cleveland Cavaliers since becoming the rookie of the year of the 2011-12 season. But it appears last night Santa Claus should have had the 20-year-old on the naughty list after he allegedly posted a picture of himself with two curvy beauties on his lap via Instagram reports Deadspin.
“Turn the f—k up,” read Irving's caption of the photo featuring himselfand two young ladies, one who claims to be a retired WNBA point guard and the other an aspiring model. Irving, who is not single, quickly denied any involvement in the photo and tweeted in response to the deluge of comments.
“Would never post something like that, especially when I have my wife @NataaGataa, crazy!!!! tweeted Irving. He followed the tweets with, “Once again I'm sorry for that everybody, I would never post something like that, hope y'all have a very special Christmas, happy holidays!!”
Model Khrystyna Garcia and Su Wu Leone (an assumed name) cozied up on Irving as he had a hand planted firmly on the bottom of one of the ladies as they draped themselves across the former Duke University star. Deleted tweets from everyone involved did their best to keep the heat off the ball player.
Irving's girlfriend, Natalia Garibotto, took umbrage at the photo at first before finally tweeting, “For everyone tweeting at me, nothing is up. Just a couple hoes who need attention and clearly in desire for more Ig and tweeter followers.”
Kyrie Irving is no doubt dealing with this struggle on all kinds of levels.
