NFL star Eric Decker is responding to allegations suggesting he’d supposedly cheated on his wife of five years, singer Jessie James Decker. Entertainment Tonight reports that Decker hit back at the speculation on Twitter on September 26, shutting down a social media user who claimed he’d allegedly been spotted out and about with women that weren’t his wife.
According to the site, Eric hit back after the Twitter user claimed to have friends who had seen the football player out with other women.
The tweet, which has since been deleted by the social media user, read, “I know people who are friends of the girls he’s hooked up with/have seen him in the clubs with girls who are not Jessie.”
Eric, who Inquisitr reported announced his retirement from the NFL in an Instagram post last month, then hit back with a message of his own, firmly denying the seemingly unfounded claims that he’s been anything but faithful to Jessie.
“Sorry lady the only club I’ve been jammin is The Mickey Mouse Club House! (That’s a kids TV show for the non-parents),” Decker responded in a tweet posted on September 26.
He then told the Twitter user to “make sure your ‘friends’ check their facts” alongside a thumbs up emoji.
Eric and Jessie married back in 2013 and have three children together.
The couple are parents to 4-year-old Vivianne, 3-year-old Eric, and their new son, 5-month-old Forrest, who was born in April. The duo have also shared much of their life together with fans on their E! reality show Eric & Jessie: Game On, which has aired three seasons on the network.
The infidelity allegations came mere days after Decker posted an adorable photo of herself and her immediate family on her Instagram page, uploading a very sweet photo of herself and Eric with their children during a fun trip to the beach.
The cute family snap showed the couple looking pretty loved up as they posed with their three children, while the “Almost Over You” singer revealed in the caption that she considers being a wife and a mom as being her “purpose.”
“My whole purpose in life #mifamilia,” Jessie captioned the sweet family photo.
Jessie also gushed over her husband of five years following his announcement in August that he would be leaving the NFL.

Yesterday was an emotional day. My amazing hubby decided to retire from playing football and I couldn’t be more proud of him and his decision. I cried, smiled and ultimately respected his choice to finish this chapter to start another. This pic was from the first football season I ever shared with him his second year for the broncos. I loved every minute cheering him on in the stands, meeting amazing friends along the way, bringing our new babies and toddlers to the games as they chanted “daddy football daddy football” in the car on the way the stadium each Sunday. From training camps lugging the babies in the wagons and seeing them run to you on the practice field to get that 30 minutes a day to see daddy. I have loved every moment of the last seven years watching my husband kick some serious ass! It’s a career he should be proud of. Can’t wait to share the next adventure with you babe and the amazing things you will do in the future! I love you so much my lover!!! Ps you said you were going to drive that beat up old Chevy Tahoe u got in college and ride it through the ground until you finished playing football, can we please get a new one now? Lol #footballisfamily

“I love you so much my lover!!!” the country star added.
