LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Cam Newton is disputing recent girlfriend reports. A video surfaced online recently claiming that Cam Newton has a new girlfriend. And a 2011 report claimed that Cam was dating Ciara. But now the Carolina Panthers quarterback says he doesn’t have a girlfriend, but he’s looking.
Cam Newton tells news that he has been wrongly portrayed before. But this time, he wishes it was correct. When asked if he did in fact have a girlfriend like recent reports, he told USA Today “I wish I did.”
Newton tells news that his focus is on his career. But he hopes that women will be focused on him for something other than his money, and a possible chance to get their own reality VH-1 reality tv show.
“Genuine people, at this stage of my life, are very scarce” Newton tells news. Cam says he tries to give possible girlfriends a chance. But he admits “I have a wall up. I’m always protecting who I am. Thinking about my brand.”
Newton has been protective of his brand since 2011. That year, Newton turned heads for his “entertainer and icon” remarks during a news interview with Sports Illustrated’s Peter King.
Newton later clarified the situation. He told news “First and foremost, I understand that my obligation is to be the best possible football player I can be. “I know and believe that.” He added “The recent comments that were made during the announcement of my recent endorsement partnership”.
