Across the pond newfound doubt emerges regarding the celebrity status of Super Bowl loser Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and his someday bride-to-be Brittany Matthews. Apparently, the king & queen of this cowtown don't command an international audience.
To be fair, despite big game defeat, Patrick Mahomes has garnered respect from his celebrity colleagues.
Still, as always, the Brits are harder to impress.
Here's the word and a gossipy tidbit sent our way off-the-record, on the QT and very hush-hush . . .
BRIT TABLOID DEBUNKS CELEBRITY STATUS OF MAHOMES & MATTHEWS!!! SNARKY LIMEY SEYZ: "THEY'RE LOSERS FROM THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE,WHO CARES ABOUT THEIR LOVE CHILD???" AS SIX FIGURE ASK FOR BABY PIX & INTERVIEW PROVES TOO RICH!!!
Just as we thought Brit tabloids were getting nicer, here's explanation from behind the scenes . . .
"Their acolytes brazenly demand mid-six-figures for a pictorial and that's simply unfeasible for European readership. Honestly, the interest isn't there after the embarrassing Super Bowl flop. It's unfortunate because we have found a growing audience for American sporting life and this would have been a grand opportunity. But not at that cost. A victory would have facilitated further talks or a non-exclusive deal but we'd rather allocate those resources for a footballer who has a greater global reach. Your question about the bidding war deserves some consideration because the process thus far has been simply ridiculous . . . Merely sending this reply because you give us a laugh from time to time and you're assumption has proven correct . . . The entitlement of their "people" was distasteful and it's not something we wish to pursue. They can call us again if Mr. Mahomes wins the Super Bowl next go round."
And so . . .
As bids are drying up behind the scenes we notice baby momma Brit teasing her social media influence with cute fashion shots of baby clothes for People magazine.
Nevertheless, like all of Kansas City post-COVID, the power couple might have to live with lower expectations.
