Odell Beckham Jr. will have no trouble finding work if he ever stops being great at catching footballs. Everyone from Netflix to ESPN to the local comedy club should be lining up for his comedic services, because OBJ knows how to make his fans laugh.

Aside from doing amazing things during his college football career at LSU and for the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns, the 27-year-old superstar has beat up and proposed to a kicking net, handed out cash to LSU players and even smacked a police officer’s butt in New Orleans. It seems like when he’s not scoring touchdowns, he’s just trying to have a good time.

OBJ and his funky hairstyle may be one of the most recognizable characters on the gridiron these days. His mother, a former LSU track star who may be even faster than her son, is always in the stands supporting her baller son. Right next to her is the woman that he calls his girlfriend.

Odell Beckham Jr. appears to be dating a woman named Lauren Wood. Wood is an Instagram model and influencer who loves to show off workout videos, bikini pictures and her NFL star boyfriend. She has a whopping 1.4 million followers.

They didn’t go public with their relationship until November 2019, when Wood posted photos of them for his 27th birthday.

“Happy birthday @obj ! Your soul is pure gold . U know I can write lot about you, but I rather keep passing these love letters 😜 Ceasar home ❤️ PS this blurry will always be my fave pic of us bc wtf is going on lol yumiii af,” she wrote on Instagram.

In March 2020, Beckham Jr. posted about her to wish her a happy “born day.”

“It’s all about the person u can be ya self wit, I find that this world takes itself a little to serious. Life is full or moments, happy or sad but…what u choose to fill them wit… is on u, I thank u for bein u…YUMI…happy born day,” he wrote.


According to, the pair was quarantining together during the coronavirus pandemic and offseason in Los Angeles. Among the ways they kept their mind off COVID-19 and kept busy were relaxing by the pool, working out a home gym and throwing footballs into basketball hoops.

Wood first gained notoriety for working on the MTV show “Wild N’ Out” produced by Nick Cannon. How they met remains a mystery, but I’m sure it was love at first sight. Clearly she was a great selection.

Lauren Wood has already attended OBJ’s games wearing Browns gear.


In 2019, OBJ’s mother posted a photo to Instagram of them two on-field prior to a Browns football game. Neither of them had posted about each other yet, but it looked like they were pretty serious by then.

If anything, it seems like his mom likes his new girlfriend.

OBJ’s Wild Bedroom Rumors

Beckham Jr. has done and said a ton of crazy things, but an allegation that took social media by storm the day after Labor Day 2020 has to be the craziest.

A woman by the name of Slim Danger, who is reportedly the mother of rapper Chief Keef’s baby and an adult film star, went on the No Jumper Podcast hosted by Aliza and Celina Powell. She revealed a very interesting tidbit about her alleged time with Odell Beckham Jr., whenever that was.

Slim Danger told the women that OBJ requested she send him a video of her on the toilet doing her business as well as not showering or wearing underwear. Then Slim Danger told the two women that the Cleveland Browns wide receiver enjoys a little thing called the “Cleveland Steamer.” Please, look that up on Google BUT NOT ON YOUR WORK PHONE.


“He loves to be sh***ed on,” Danger told the No Jumper Podcast.

Well then. Of course, this story blew up and was immediately trending everywhere.

Take this allegation with the biggest grain of salt ever. No one has any idea if it’s true, but it would be something to make up this story completely out of thin air. Plus, no one should be shamed for their bedroom preferences, am I right? Right? Bueller?

Anyway, that probably isn’t the craziest fetish story regarding a professional athlete. OBJ should probably ignore all of this and focus on catching passes from Baker Mayfield during the 2020 football season.
