Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Speaks Out
It was a show of support for beleaguered Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, from his wife.
Jerry Jones and his wife of 50 years, Eugenia, appeared together in public over the weekend in Los Angeles for the first time since racy photos of him appeared on the Internet. Some were even too graphic to show on TV.
The 71-year-old millionaire spoke out for the first time about the controversy, answering questions from reporters at the Cowboys training camp in Southern California.
A reporter asked, "Are these part of an extortion plot?"
"Someone has misrepresented photos taken at a restaurant five years ago for their own purposes," said Jerry. "I'm just not going to comment on it."
Jones refused to answer any more questions, except to say the existence of the photos was not a complete surprise.
"How long have you known about them, Jimmy?" asked a reporter.
"Again, I don't want to comment on it anything more but I've known about them for five years," he replied.
The women in the photos are reportedly strippers who claimed they were unaware the photos were taken, and they said they are not involved in any blackmail attempt.
The brunette in the photos, identified as Jordan, reportedly dances at a strip club in Fort Worth, and a blonde also pictured in the photos, Lindzie, dances in Houston.
