ANDY Reid isn’t getting involved in the Patrick Mahomes/Rihanna saga.
Set to perform the highly anticipated halftime show at Super Bowl LVII, Rihanna has been the talk of the town in Arizona.
Asked for his favorite Rihanna song, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told the media that they’ll “have to ask Patrick (Mahomes) that one.”
Because of the events on Wednesday, when the 27-year-old was “pranked” by former NFL wide receiver, Brandon Marshall, 38.
Mahomes was asked for his reaction to Rihanna, 34, having allegedly called him “the greatest quarterback ever.”
He said: “It makes me feel great. She’s gonna crush it at halftime.
“I have family members that I think are more excited about the halftime show than they are the game.
“And so whatever Rihanna says is like the gospel, so I’m glad that she went with me for that honor.”
Unfortunately for Mahomes, Rihanna never made this claim.
A clearly disappointed Mahomes looked gutted as Marshall laughed after breaking the news to him.
Thankfully for Mahomes, when Marshall later told Rihanna that he had “pranked him (Mahomes) yesterday,” she subsequently slammed him as “mean.”
Speaking to the camera, and presumably Mahomes, she said: “That’s so mean. He (Marshall) is mean, O.K. I’m so sorry you went through that.
“I still think you’re great … [Marshall is] a hater though.”
And fans were less than impressed with Marshall’s prank, such as one who wrote: “Hill I’ll Gladly Die On: There’s a difference between a prank and just flat-out lying to someone.”
Another said: “That’s just childish.”
While one reporter tweeted: “Even @PatrickMahomes is gullible!”
Mahomes will have to swiftly move on from this forgettable moment, with the Super Bowl rapidly approaching.
The Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium on Sunday, February 12.
