Dad says Odell Beckham Jr. ‘auditioning’ to date his teenage Disney daughter
Odell Beckham Jr. may be a big-time NFL star, but he can’t just go romance a teenage Disney starlet — not unless he passes her dad’s "audition" first.
That’s what TMZ learned when OBJ was spotted with 19-year-old Zendaya, making the rounds at the post-Grammy parties in LA on Monday night. The young couple wasn’t alone; Zendaya’s dad, Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, was with them as a chaperone, and he gave TMZ the scoop when asked if he approves of his daughter’s "relationship" with the 23-year-old New York Giants receiver.
"There’s no relationship. We’re just friends," dad said. He added, "When you see my daughter out on a date without me, it’s a relationship."
Asked to clarify what this was, he said "It’s like an audition. It’s an interview."
There you have it. For more on OBJ’s audition, watch the video above.
