After working with the Jets for a year, a controversy arose about Sterger and Brett Favre, the NFL superstar.
Controversial Brett Favre Allegations
When NFL superstar Brett Favre signed with the New York Jets, it created a sensation around the internet.
Favre is the only person to achieve the Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award.
He won many Super Bowls while playing with Green Bay Packers. The jets also expected to grab the titles so, they brought him.
But in 2010, a news report published in Deadspin.com — a famous sports magazine headlined Brett Favre Once Sent Me Cock [Penis] Shots: Not A Love Story.
It uncovered the shady truths about Favre. It exposed the voicemails sent by Favre to Sterger calling his home to have “fun” with her— and also revealed the pictures of a hand wearing an expensive watch and holding a penis — alleged to be Favre’s.
Favre’s Defame Turned Sterger’s Popularity
The controversy started in 2008 when Favre signed with the Jets. Favre had a generous personality. He had contributed to many charities and social works.
Brett fans did not believe in Jenn’s allegations, so she got trolled as a Gold Digger. His fans claimed Sterger as a mischievous unsuccessful woman who wanted to spoil a superstar’s career.
But Sterger’s fan also responded to the troll. They showed commitment towards her and kept her unstressed.
Sterger told the media that she was once depressed because her trolls circulated on Myspace. In a short period, Sterger entered mainstream media headlines.
She took a bold move to expose Favre through a prominent magazine. The leaked photographs and audio clips were strong evidence to verdict Favre.
But a problem arose when she interviewed with ABC. In the interview, she explained that neither she has seen Favre directly nor has he.
However, the committee conducted an investigation — and the result was not in her favor. But Favre had to pay a 50,000 dollars fine for misbehaving.
The commission concluded that there were no strong proofs to decide whether Favre had sent those photos.
And Favre was acquitted of the allegations.
Favre’s fame got degraded because of Jenn. Gradually, his reputation eroded due to the controversy.
