Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reacting to suggestive photos taken of him posing with two strippers. In his brief break of silence on the matter, Jones vaguely tells Dallas Morning News that the alleged extortion pictures are “misrepresented.”
According to the report, the Cowboys owner offered very little in regards to the racy photos that were tweeted online by Frank Hoover, calling himself the “son of God.” Hoover wrote a 20-page document claiming that the images were part of a blackmail scheme by others, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
As the news source puts it, Jones repeats himself when asked about the extortion photos. He stuck with the safe “no comment” mantra mostly throughout the interview segment that lasted a total of three minutes.
Jerry Jones says this when asked if the photos were part of an extortion plot:
“Someone has misrepresented photos taken at a restaurant five years ago for their own purposes. I’m just not going to comment on it.”
Jones admits that the images were snapped at a restaurant in Dallas, but evaded the question when asked what exactly is he “misrepresented” in the photos.
“Again, that’s all I’ll like to get into.”
The suggestive photos show Jones and the strippers fully clothed, but strike sexual poses. In one, Jones is cupping the breast of the blonde woman, and in the other, a brunette is knelt to Jones’ “waist” area.
Ironically, the billionaire was well aware that these photos existed. When asked why the photos have emerged, he didn’t have a real answer.
“I really don’t have any more comment than what I’ve made,” Jones repeated. “I said that.” He also didn’t “have any more comment” on whether legal action is being taken.
Perhaps in an attempt to get out of the situation, Jones began coughing. He would stop and continue to cough.
“Excuse me. Real bad cold,” Jones told reporters.
He then remarked, “That’s why I haven’t been talking to you guys.”
It was after that he let reporters know he was actually joking.
As for the two women in the photos, both claim not remembering much about that night because “there was a lot of alcohol involved.” TMZ reports that Lindzie (blonde) and Jordan (brunette) have hired an attorney “in case” Jerry Jones takes legal action of some sort. They want the photos “scrubbed” off the internet.
