Freddy Adu really wants you to know he is not a nightclub owner

Monday February 16th, 2015

Freddy Adu has been a man on a mission over the last week, and that mission has been to spread the word that he is not a nightclub owner or promoter.

The trouble all started with an article from Complex UK that claimed the 25-year-old Adu had given up on a soccer career to become a nightclub promoter:

The former USMNT striker found out about the tweets and tried to clarify that he had simply hosted a party:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic got some new tattoos for a good cause

Later that day he reiterated that the report was incorrect:

Two tweets in a matter of hours seems like enough to clear up any misunderstandings, yes? Not for Adu:

The next day the question of whether or not Adu is a nightclub promoter still lingered for some, so Freddy got back to work:

Skip Bayless is not a fan of Ariana Grande

After a weekend full of tweeting denials, Adu still did not seem satisfied so he issued another on Monday morning:

OK then, case closed. Freddy Adu is not a nightclub owner or promoter.

Or is he?
