Odell Beckham, Jr. is busy, not with football but his endeavors off the field. The New York Giants wide receiver is making headlines and one of them links him to Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. Rumors said they are dating, although both of them denied this. 

New York Daily News was one of the media outlets that first reported the rumored romance between Beckham and Azalea. In a story published a couple of days ago, it was mentioned that a source saw the two with some friends in Los Angeles Monday. They were at Bowlero Woodland Hills "being romantic" while eating. 

Beckham immediately tried to shut down the rumors via social media. On Wednesday he tweeted, "If they don't have a story these days they'll make one..." I might get that tatted #StayTheCourse." 

Azalea followed suit and was in denial mode when the issue was brought up. In a report by TMZ yesterday, there was a footage of her being bombarded with questions regarding Beckham. She falsified the reports that they are dating and added that she does not even know the Giants wide receiver. The 26-year-old said they just took photos together with peers and that was it. 

The Iggy Azalea story did not help Beckham who is already catching heat for missing New York's organized team activities this week. These are voluntary workouts so there is no problem if he decided to skip them. However, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo prefers to have all his players around. 

"You want all your players here, especially your great players. It's a time to build fundamentals, communication, chemistry and trust, so you want all your players here, especially the great ones. They facilitate a lot of those things for you," McAdoo explained according to ESPN. 

The good news for the Giants is Beckham started working with NFL legend Cris Carter. He also assured that he will be in New York for minicamp.
