NEW YORK (AP) – The former New York Jets game hostess who allegedly received inappropriate photos and phone messages from Brett Favre says in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that she isn’t a “gold-digger” and hasn’t “made a dime” off the scandal.
In the interview that will air on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday and Wednesday and “Nightline” on Tuesday night, Jenn Sterger says: “I haven’t made a dime off anything in this whole situation. Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. I never wanted to sue anyone. That was never an intention of mine. I’m not a gold-digger. The only way I wanted to make my money this whole time was to just have a job.”
In December, the NFL concluded its investigation of Favre by fining him $50,000 fine for failing to cooperate with the process.
The NFL said Commissioner Roger Goodell couldn’t conclude Favre violated the league’s personal conduct policy based on the evidence available.
Investigators were trying to determine if Favre sent inappropriate messages and below-the-belt photos to Sterger in 2008, when both worked for the Jets.
