When you’re a NFL quarterback you’re bound to have some interesting and famous love interests.  Tony Romo dated Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood.  Tom Brady managed to snare Gisele Bundchen.  Don’t even get me started on the various women who were linked to Joe Namath.  The most recent golden boy to join the ranks is Russell Wilson, who has been dating pop-sensation Ciara.  But apparently this union has caused some problems… for the team DJ.  In an interview with Billbaord magazine DJ DV One was asked to talk about the music players prefer to hear during practice.  Ciara happens to have a child with rapper Future, her ex.  Making things a little awkward.

This year, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for Future. But that dynamic is weird, too, because I can barely play Future with Ciara running around and that’s her baby’s dad. It’s just that he has a dope-ass album out right now, players like to hear it, it definitely gets you pumped up — even though it’s low-tempo, it’s still stuff that you want to hear — and then you’ve got Ciara running up with little baby Future and she’s dating Russell so it’s like, ‘Oh f—…”I also feel weird playing Ciara, because I was playing Ciara before she started dating Russell. I’d play ‘Goodies’ and stuff like that for the crowd because it’s mainstream — it’s dance-y music, it’s popular, it’s stuff that you can get away with playing. Now that she’s dating Russell, I don’t want people to be like, ‘He’s just playing that because she’s dating Russell.’ ”

Why do I feel like they should work all this into an episode of “Empire”?
