NFL star Antonio Brown has been accused of obtaining a fake COVID-19 vaccination card so he could avoid NFL protocols.
According to Los Angeles chef Steven Ruiz, he was sent a text message by Brown's girlfriend Cydney Moreau on July 2nd that said Brown was willing to pay $500 if he could get a Johnson & Johnson vaccination card.
"Can you get the COVID cards?" Moreau texted Ruiz. "I can try," Ruiz responded. "JNJ shot. Ab said he would give you $500," she then texted back.
Antonio Brown is reportedly called "Ab" by his family and friends.

Ruiz is speaking out against Brown because they are no longer on good terms. According to him, Brown owes him $10,000 and he refuses to pay his debt.
Following the allegations, the Buccaneers released a statement saying they had "received completed vaccination cards from all Tampa Bay Buccaneers players."
"All vaccination cards were reviewed by Buccaneers personnel and no irregularities were observed," the team said, per ESPN.
The player's attorney also told them "If Antonio's doctors and the guidelines require a booster shot, then at that time, he'll be happy to do it live on TV and everyone can come watch."
