“What I meant to say yesterday was that the media and general public have no idea what goes on behind closed doors,” Amendola, 33, penned on Instagram, alongside a photo of a lion.
“I don’t participate in fake intangibles that consume the public eye. I’m a private, single guy and if everyone’s happy — I’m happy,” he continued.
Amendola, who split from Culpo, 26, last fall, appeared to blast the model online Friday, writing, “Olivia chooses and wants to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money.” He also seemed to take a shot at Zedd, whom Culpo was previously spotted with at Coachella earlier this month, TMZ reported.
The Detroit Lions receiver later noted, “It’s not fun seeing your name attached to a click-bait headline story that is completely fabricated bulls–t.. so when I saw this love triangle gossip I tried to clear the air.”
Amendola then stated he would “take blame for the miscommunication! Good vibes only from me! ALL LOVE always.”
After wrapping up his initial post, Amendola dropped another message, captioning a selfie, “Fake people have an image to maintain. The real ones jus don’t care.”
Amendola’s former teammate, Patriots receiver Julian Edelman, replied with some advice (via Barstool Sports), “Get off Instagram please … thanks.”
