Indiana Pacers Star Paul George spoke about the validity of report that he was a victim of catfish scam that had him sending nude photos to a gayman. The All-Star said there's no truth in the report and it was just made to derail his career.
"The whole story, as far as me being catfished, I know the girl that sent the pictures out," George said after the Pacers' shootaround via Indy Star. "It wasn't a catfish story, it was a girl - I don't want to get into the story but I know who's behind it."
The 23-year-old George previously hit the headlines after reports that he fathered a Miami-based stripper in the previous month. But the latest "catfish" report certainly sent several brows raising, even more after the alleged photos went viral this past week.
George, who is having another MVP-type of a season, said he has remained focused on his career despite dealing with off the court issues such as this.
"I'm good. A lot of it is just stuff trying to bring me down," George said. "I'm good with it. The thing that just came out, it's all a fake. It really don't have any wear on me because I know it's not true."
