Rob Gronkowski’s film habits are getting him in trouble on the football field and at home.
On Tuesday, the Buccaneers star tight end told reporters that his girlfriend, Camille Kostek, scolds him when he watches too much film. But, she quickly called him out on Twitter, when a fan asked if she could “confirm” the story is true.
“I can confirm that Rob is in a silly mood at practice today where he just says things to say them,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model tweeted Wednesday. “This has never happened once. @RobGronkowski smh.”
Gronkowski told reporters, “Trust me, I watch so much film that my girlfriend gets mad at me. She friggin throws s–t at me sometimes because I’m watching so much film.”
The four-time Super Bowl champion was obviously joking about Kostek, but what he said about head coach Bruce Arians sounded more serious.
“Coach threatened me now that I don’t get my vet day anymore because I don’t watch film,” said Gronkowski, who, told Peyton and Eli Manning Monday night that he doesn’t watch film and just relies on quarterback Tom Brady.
With his vet day apparently on the line, Gronkowski quickly changed his tune.
“I watch tons of film. I watch an overload of film,” he told reporters.
Prior to him appearing on the Manning brothers’ alternate “Monday Night Football” broadcast, Gronkowski said he didn’t think it was a “good idea.”
“They always get me joking around, and in that type of silly atmosphere and that’s what happened,” he explained.
Gronkowski has 12 catches for 129 yards and four touchdowns in his first two games this season.
The Bucs (2-0) visit the Rams (2-0) this Sunday.
