Why do people lie?
I mean, don't they understand eventually the truth comes out, especially if the lie is national news?
In the previous post I shared with you that rapper and music executive Bryan Williams, who goes by the handle Birdman, said on a national radio show that he was awaiting NFL approval to become a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins.
Not to take Birdman's word, with all due respect, I called the NFL to ask what is the deal with Birdman. A spokesman told me the league has no knowledge of any approval process for Birdman.
And there's a good reason for that. Birdman apparently isn't at all involved in the approval process he said he was, according to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.
"I have NEVER spoken to him or any representative," Ross said in a statement released by the team. "Not considering or looking for any celebrity limited partners."
That is interesting on multiple levels. First, it shoots Birdman out of the sky.
Secondly, it means Ross is taking a break from the search for more celebs to fill his suites and walk the orange carpet at Sun Life Stadium.
Finally, a note to Birdman: Thanks for the wild goose chase.
