Photos from what appears to be between Zion Williamson and a UNC student recently went viral. Barstool has since deleted the tweet but a number of sites including Black Sports Online and the Culture Updates posted screenshots of the DM’s. The messages were reportedly sent during Williamson’s recent trip to Chapel Hill, but Heavy has recently learned that this was not likely the case.
“I have a big room, come sleep with me,” the screenshot of Williamson’s alleged DM’s said.
Sources tell Heavy these messages took place in October of 2018, not in the last month as some have suggested. The source noted the photos were not posted by the UNC student and were initially posted by a friend as a joke. There are also those questioning the legitimacy of the photo.
“Barstool you gotta fact Chek yo sh–. You can literally do those in the snapchat app,” Twitter user @CediCenter suggested.
Barstool has not provided any details on why the alleged DM’s were taken down.
Zion Williamson Has Been Linked to His Rumored High School Girlfriend, But It Is Not Known If They Are Still Dating
According to Sports Gossip, Williamson had been linked to his rumored high school girlfriend Tiana White who he went to prom with. Here is an excerpt from the November 2018 report.
Always tough having a long distance relationship. We’re being told they went into the school year together, but time apart, and college, will often break up high school sweethearts.
The two of them were spotted arguing on IG live earlier this year. Tiana White was his date for prom. She wasn’t the Prom Queen, even though Zion was named the Prom King.
It is not known if the two are still dating. Williamson’s Instagram has been noticeably absent of any photos of the two. He last posted a photo from their prom on April 20, 2018.
Here is a video of the two interacting on Instagram live.
