Coach ‘used me as his cocaine platter’
A Las Vegas woman took to the radio Wednesday to say former Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster used her body as a “cocaine platter” after starting a relationship with him last month. Kijuana Nige Sherrod’s Facebook account showed a video of Foerster snorting lines of white powder, leading Foerster to resign from the team Monday.
Sherrod met Foerster when the Dolphins were practicing in Southern California in September, she said Wednesday on ESPN Radio’s “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz.”
“Yes, he was calling for
entertainment,” Sherrod said.
“He just wanted someone to basically do his stuff off of — if that makes sense.”
She said, “Chris Foerster used me as his cocaine platter.”
As Hurricane Irma was nearing South Florida that first week of September, the Dolphins moved temporarily to the Dallas Cowboys’ Oxnard, Calif.-based training facility.
Around that time Sherrod, 33, got a call from Foerster, she said on the radio show.
By Sunday night, Sherrod had posted on Facebook the clip of Foerster vacuuming up several lines of a white substance with his nose.
She said she wanted to expose what she says is a double standard in the National Football League, one in which minority players who kneel are criticized while she alleged a coach like Foerster is doing drugs.
Foerster said in a statement upon resigning that he was seeking help for his issues. He hasn’t said what the substance depicted in the video was, and hasn’t made any further statements.
The Sun Sentinel couldn’t reach Sherrod for comment Wednesday.
But in a statement, the Foerster family said: “As a family, our first and foremost concern is that Chris gets the help he needs. We ask that family members be afforded privacy as we work to support each other during this difficult period.”
Sherrod told the radio show she took exception with Foerster being allowed to resign from the team instead of him being fired.
“Like, they’re holding his hand through this process,” she said.
Sherrod said Foerster texted her, warning her against making the video public.
“He basically sent me a message saying anything I planned to do or tried to harm him will be turned over to his job’s security team,” Sherrod said.
In a separate interview with a Las Vegas TV station, Sherrod said she wanted Foerster to get help.
“I want him to get back to who he’s supposed to be,” Sherrod told Las Vegas’ ABC affiliate, Action 13 News.
Sherrod, who played volleyball at the University of Missouri and who has described herself as a model, said she was dating Foerster and that the two broke up after he sent her the video.
On the Le Batard show, she didn’t specify exactly what precipitated the breakup, but she accused him of lying to her.
“From the beginning, I asked him what his status was, he told me he had three kids, he told me he was married but he was divorced, he asked me if I would move to Miami,” she said.
