The Las Vegas model who apparently released the now-infamous video that led to the resignation of Miami Dolphins offensive-line coach Chris Foerster spoke to ESPN on Wednesday about her reasoning, among other topics.
Kijuana Nige joined Dan Le Batard and Stugotz on ESPN Radio and said that Foerster threatened to turn her in to the Dolphins’ security team if she released the video. Nige also implied that she feared for her safety after Foerster threatened her after coming down off an alleged high.
“Before he could do anything to me, I felt that needed to be exposed. Just in case I somehow pop up dead, that story was still going to get out,” Nige told ESPN.
Nige said that she met Foerster in California the week before the Dolphins played the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 17, sparking a relationship built around drugs.
“He did mention he wanted to party. We met multiple times. Chris Foerster used me as his cocaine platter…. I was dating him,” she told ESPN.
The video that she released, which features Foerster appearing to snort a white substance, was recorded by Foerster from his desk at the Dolphins headquarters within the last week, according to Nige. She also claimed that he kept drugs in a desk drawer at the facility.
“Doesn’t matter if they’re in Miami or London or New York. I was invited everywhere they went. Everywhere they went, he sent me other footage. That is not the only piece of footage. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. He was doing it at his desk. He was at his Miami office,” Nige told ESPN.
Nige cited lies as the main factor that deteriorated her relationship with Foerster after he allegedly told her that he wanted to marry her and have children with her. She also doubled down on her message that releasing the incriminating video helps highlight inequalities in the NFL, claiming that she intends to release at least one other photo or video in the future.
“My motive was to basically expose the inequalities in the system,” she told ESPN. “It’s not just the NFL. The inequalities that come with being a minority compared with a white privileged person in America in general. This is shining a light on the inequalities we have as a country. We don’t get paid the same amount as everyone else.”
