Via Larry Brown Sports:

Kerry Rhodes is trying so hard to deny rumors that he is gay that he apparently is claiming he could be the father of Kim Kardashian’s baby.

Rhodes, 30, has been facing weekly rumors of being gay, which have been spread by his alleged ex-boyfriend (the two are pictured above). Rhodes, currently a free agent safety, supposedly ventured into the fantastical in order to deny being gay.

According to Bossip, Rhodes sent a text message to some of his football-playing friends to tell them that he could be the father of Kim Kardashian’s baby.

“Man this could be my baby!! I was f—ing her the same time as K.West was lol!!!”

Kardashian just gave birth, and the child is firmly believed to be Kanye West’s. Rhodes apparently is so desperate to prove his heterosexuality that he was distributing that text message.

For what it’s worth, Bossip says everyone knows at this point that Rhodes is gay, so his efforts are pointless. At least they’re good for entertainment value.

Kardashian has dated many athletes in the past, but known have been Rhodes (that we know of).
