Polyxeni and Odell Beckham Jr were first spotted together at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park in California, USA. They were later spotted at Cancun Beach, Mexico and tongues got wagging when photos of them surfaced online. At that time, fans were curious to know about Odell’s current girlfriend, but most people knew her because she was previously linked to popular British pop star, Harry Styles. Odell Beckham Jr is known to keep his private life away from the media, but being a football star almost made that impossible because each time they stepped out in public, photos of them were always taken and posted online. After a while, the pair parted ways without revealing the true cause of their breakup.
About Odell Beckham Jr’s and Laura Cuenca Serrano’s relationship
Laura Cuenca Serrano is a French model and social media star. She was born on September 12, 1987, in Rheda-Wiedenbruck, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. She is 34 years old as of July 2022.
According to reports, Laura Cuenca and Odell Beckham Jr probably hooked up during the Paris Fashion Week in 2018. Weeks later, Laura Cuenca leaked a video of Odell that got many people angry, including the New York Giants management. The 7-second video showed Beckham in bed and holding something which appeared to be weed and talking dirty with a girl in the room who was later identified as Laura. Laura was seen holding a credit card and chopping a suspicious white powder which everyone believed was cocaine.
As a result of this, some football fans insisted the Giants Organization should consider trading Odell to another team.
However, Odell later took to his Twitter page to post a tweet that reads:
Old news still makes a good story I guess. #Catchupwerein18
The tweet implied that the video was old but then fans were quick to compare both tattoos on his arms, indicating that the video was recorded recently. It was later confirmed by Laura that the video was a recent one, and she even went as far as inserting a timestamp to prove it. According to sports analysts and commentators, it wasn’t a big deal to date beautiful women, but it was indeed a shame and a disappointment to be caught in a hotel room with cocaine.
Unfortunately, Odell Beckham Jr was dragged by many fans who called him names for not being cautious especially when he was asking for an extended contract that would make him the highest-paid NFL wide receiver. Though the request for the extended contract happened before the whole cocaine incident, Odell was eventually traded to Cleveland Browns.

However, during an interview, Nevaeh denied the dating rumours stating that she was quite surprised by the rumours when she saw them online.
