Zach Wilson's ex accuses him of hooking up with his mom's best friend in dramatic spill
New York, New York - Over the weekend, New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson's relationship drama caught the eye of the NFL world as the rookie's messy love life became a trending topic on social media.
The drama unfolded on Instagram when someone accused Wilson’s ex-girlfriend, Abby Giles, of being a "homie hopper," when it was announced she is dating Washington Commanders wide receiver, Dax Milne, a former teammate of Wilson’s at BYU.
In her defense, Giles replied to the comment revealing in an Instagram comment that while dating Wilson, the Jets' star was sleeping with his own mother's best friend – yikes!
Gile since deleted her Instagram account, and her current love-fling, Milne, blocked any comments to his initial post.
By that time, it was far too late and it wasn't long until the NFL world got a hold of the relationship scandal, blowing up an already messy situation.
Zach Jets' teammates pile in on messy situation
Like moths to a flame, the Jets team came flying in on Twitter sharing their own thoughts on Wilson's situation.
Jets' offensive tackle Mekhi Becton posted a Terrell Owens "that’s my quarterback" meme, adding exclamation point and crying-laughing emojis.
Cornerback Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner, who was selected No. 4 overall by the Jets in the 2022 NFL Draft, quote-tweeted Becton's post with a meme that showed a smiling photo of Juwan Howard, the head coach for the Michigan men’s basketball team.
Keeping the momentum, Jets receiver Elijah Moore wrote, "No cap!" in a quote-tweet by former wide-receiver Chad Johnson, who chimed in with: "Zach Wilson is the [goat]."
Wilson's mother, Lisa Neeleman, had posted an emotional, nearly 30-minute-long Instagram video Sunday decrying the evils of social media and online predators, although it's unclear whether this was in any way related to the scandal.
Zach Wilson, who ironically played for the BYU Cougars in college, has most recently been romantically linked to influencer Nicolette Dellanno. The rumored couple attended a Yankees game in the Bronx last month, when New York defeated the Rays 4-3.
