The Patriots’ dinner saga could also be reaching its last course.
After ESPN reporter Adam Schefter doubled down on his report that Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore dined collectively Oct. 2 — simply days earlier than each examined optimistic for COVID-19 — Gilmore’s spouse appeared to face by her aspect of the story as properly, whereas reacting to the firestorm that the alleged dinner has caused.
“I’m not going forwards and backwards with anyone. I stated what I stated,” Gabrielle Gilmore tweeted Wednesday.
Gilmore was revealed to have examined optimistic for COVID-19 on Oct. 7 and Schefter stated on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia that he wasn’t essentially stunned by the information as a result of the Patriots star cornerback had been “noticed having dinner” with Newton the night time earlier than the quarterback was discovered to have examined optimistic.
Gabrielle Gilmore later stated “there was no dinner out.”
The conflicting tales could have been about semantics, it seems.
“They may not have been out to dinner. I don’t know whether or not they had dinner at Cam’s home or Stephon Gilmore’s home or on the Patriots, however that they had dinner collectively Friday night time,” Schefter stated Wednesday on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Present” in Boston.
“I’ve actual respect for Stephon Gilmore, Mrs. Gilmore, [and] I’m not seeking to refute anyone,” he added. “They weren’t out to dinner. I don’t know why this is a matter. Cam Newton examined optimistic early Saturday morning. The night time earlier than, Stephon Gilmore and Cam Newton had dinner. That’s all. They didn’t do something unsuitable. There’s nothing to that. That they had dinner. What’s the issue? … It’s no one’s fault, however they did have dinner Friday night time.”
The Patriots are scheduled to return to observe Thursday and Newton is predicted to affix them, in line with ESPN. Gilmore’s availability for Sunday’s sport towards the Broncos is unknown however he was reportedly asymptomatic.
