NFL Superstar Gets Into Relationship With Singing Sensation. Is This A Smart Idea?

David Hookstead | Reporter

Houston Texans star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is dating Iggy Azalea.

Azalea confirmed the news during an appearance on Y100 in Miami, according to a report from TMZ Sports Wednesday night(SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

I’m not so sure the Texans top brass is super pumped about this. I’m not saying that as a negative towards Azalea. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s probably a lovely woman.

But she also shows up in headlines extremely often. A perfect example is when she had a very public falling out with NBA player Nick Young after cheating allegations. We’re on the verge of the football season, and one of the Texans’ best players is now mixing it up with a woman who just can’t stay out of the news. (RELATED: BAKER MAYFIELD GETS ENGAGED.

Is that really what he should be focusing on? I don’t think so. I think Hopkins should focus on balling out and winning some football games. Again, I’m not saying this because I have anything against Azalea, but the season is here.

Hopkins should have at it in the offseason with whoever he wants, but let’s stick to football during this time of year. Go ahead and claim I’m wrong or that I hate love. I don’t hate relationships between celebrities. I just hate that an NFL star might be a bit distracted.
