Stephon Gilmore’s wife Gabrielle is not pleased with Adam Schefter’s latest report.

Last week, Schefter stated that he wasn’t surprised Gilmore contracted Covid-19 because he had dinner with Cam Newton a day before Newton tested positive for Coronavirus.

“I happen to believe — I was told that, in the New England area over the weekend, that Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore were spotted having dinner together on Friday night,” “So, and I was aware of that over the weekend. So to hear that he tested positive, I got to be honest, is not overly surprising to me. You know, if you’re at a dinner table with somebody who’s got the virus, there’s a chance — I would think — that you’re going to get the virus.”

Gabrielle then took to Twitter to refute Schefter’s claim that Gilmore ever had dinner with Newton.

Schefter would double down on his report about Gilmore having dinner with Newton on Wednesday morning.

Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore had dinner Friday night,” Schefter said on WEEI on Wednesday morning. “I don’t know where they ate, but they had dinner together Friday night.”

I was doing a radio show. I don’t remember the specific language that I said,” Schefter shared with WEEI. “I thought I said that they had dinner together. Maybe I said they were out to dinner. I don’t remember, OK, the semantics, again, because I don’t know exactly where they had dinner, to be perfectly frank. But I don’t believe it was out to dinner, like out in Boston. Right, but they had dinner together on Friday night.”

Which led Gabrielle once again going to Twitter to respond.

As for Newton and Gilmore it seems like both players are set to return this week to play.
