Eddie George

I Was NOT Cheating On My Wife

3/8/2012 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eddie George is adamant... he is JUST FRIENDS with pro golfer Rachel Connor
Retired NFL superstar Eddie George is adamant ... he's JUST FRIENDS with pro golfer Rachel Connor ... despite the fact he was a passenger in her car when she was busted for DUI at 2 AM this week.

George -- who's been married to singer Tamara Johnson since 2004 -- tells TMZ ... Connor was "simply trying to be nice by offering me a ride" Wednesday morning after a golf event in Florida.

George says he "realized that Rachel lived the closest to where I was staying. So she offered to drop me off.  I believed her to be competent to drive and not impaired at all."

He was wrong ... allegedly. As TMZ first reported, cops believe Connor was HAMMERED ... because she could barely walk, couldn't count and reeked of booze. George was never accused of any wrongdoing.


Still, George reiterates, "Rachel Connor was simply trying to be nice by offering me a ride."

Here's Eddie's entire statement:

"As part of a two-day charity golf event, a group of us who had played together on Tuesday celebrated at dinner.  The group included Rachel Connor."

"After dinner, as everyone left the restaurant together, we realized that Rachel lived the closest to where I was staying. So she offered to drop me off.  I believed her to be competent to drive and not impaired at all.  We were stopped shortly after we left."

"At first, I hesitated to respond to this story. But I now see that people are willing to think the worst. So my wife, Tamara , and I believe we have to address this."

"Rachel Connor was simply trying to be nice by offering me a ride. No one in our group felt she was impaired or we all would have stopped her from driving."

Here's the brother translation: I'm not cheating. I tripped and fell in the passenger seat on my way to her place to dig out this hot becky. If you were slim, hot, white and I didn't destroy your body by having a kid, maybe I would be into you. Love you.

BUSTED BIG TIME! The Wife will not let him go though. Black women freak out when their Men go with Blonde White Women. They will do anything to hold on to them. Rachel will not be able to live this down though. She should do porn now.

Dude was on his way to WRECK that ass!!! You know those two had been flirting the whole event and all it took was a lil alcohol to make her forget all about golf and want to check out a different set of balls. Convo went like this...Eddie: 'Yeah, my wi...hommie dropped me off. Not sure how I'm gonna get home.' Rachel: 'yooUUUU Knnowww, I,I,I,I, leeeeeve iin uuurr, srryyry, Imma lil drruuu...what wasssss I sane???' Eddie: 'You were saying you would drive me home, but you had to make a stop at your place first.' Rachel: 'Riiiiigghhtt. Leesss GoooooO.' Eddie steps away and makes call to wife. Eddie:' Hey babe, Mike's dumb ass took full advantage of the open bar. He can't drive. Had to call the car service. It's late though so might be while... No, you go ahead and go to sleep. I'll try not to wake you when I come in...alright babe. Word. You can check TMZ for the rest of the story...

@truth, what a load of lies. Black Women dont freak out, they behave the same way other women do when their men cheat. Now go run and tell that!!!
