San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is in for a huge year--at least according to Kiara Mia.
The adult film star was spotted on a date with the 26-year-old QB last week, and now she's promising big things for his team.
“Jimmy and I had an amazing dinner, and he treated me with so much respect, and class. Honestly, we’re friends,” she told TMZ when asked about the date that set social media ablaze.
"I can promise the 49ers that they will make the Super Bowl and win because everything I touch turns to gold."
Garoppolo's exploits have attracted media attention for a while now. Earlier this year, we marveled at his exs, aspiring model Alexandra King. Now he's apparently moved on to someone a bit more experienced.
A high-profile quarterback palling around with porn star isn't such a good idea, at least according to Britt Henry, the former ESPN-er who ripped Garoppolo's choice of date.
Meanwhile, Garoppolo shed light on his relationship with former teammate Tom Brady in a piece for Bleacher Report. The former Patriots draft pick, who served as Brady's understudy until he was traded to the Niners last October, said he and Brady developed a healthy competition while they were teammates, although it sometimes led to them hating each other.
“The competitiveness between the two of us was very similar. If I’m playing my best friend in one-on-one basketball, if we are both into it, by the end, we are going to hate each other,” Jimmy says.
“That’s how it is. All the good competitors have that. We got along, but there were always times where we wanted to kill each other. It was a healthy, competitive relationship.”
Now, Garoppolo thinks he's better than Brady. He wouldn't say it out loud though.
“But in your head, you believe you’re better than Tom Brady?” I ask.
“It was always a quiet confidence,” Jimmy says. “I would never speak that.”
I ask again: “But you believed that you were the best dude there?”
“Yeah, you believe in yourself,” Jimmy says. “That’s the best way to put it.”
I check his confidence one more time: “So you’re going up to Tom Brady and saying, ‘I’m better than you’?”
“I’m not stupid. You have to pick your battles, but I had belief in myself that I could do certain things, and it’s always worked out pretty well. It will always be in me, that drive that comes from my dad telling me that someone is always working harder, that I’m always in last place and I need to catch up to someone else.”
Garoppolo will have his chance to prove he's better this season. But if he wants to do it in a head-to-head match-up with Brady, that would have to wait until February. The only time the Niners and Patriots could play this year would be in the Super Bowl.
