Woman who outed former Dolphins coach Chris Foerster opens up about their alleged 2-month relationship
The woman who outed former Dolphins coach Chris Foerster prior to his resignation says she exposed him to bring attention to the racial inequality in America.
Kijuana Nige, a model who says Foerster used her as “his cocaine platter” during their “month-and-a-half, almost two months” in a relationship together, says her motive for posting the video of Foerster snorting what appears to be cocaine was to prove a larger point.
“My motive was just to basically expose the inequalities in the system. It’s not just NFL,” Nige said during her interview on ESPN Radio’s The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on Wednesday. “The inequalities that come with being a minority compared with a white privileged person in America just in general.
“How do we have someone who is paid millions to be a leader for a team doing blow, when we can’t have blacks kneeling for the anthem,” Nige asked rhetorically. “After I realized his habits and who he was and everything going on in the system, he was going to get exposed.”
The video Nige posted was sent to her by Foerster himself, professing his love to the model as he snorted lines of a white, powdery substance.
While Nige said she indeed cares for Foerster and called him a “good person,” she said he simply needed be used as an example to prove her point.
“How was he even given the opportunity to resign, seriously? How were you given the opporunity to resign after having such footage surface in the first place?” Nige said. “Let’s be honest here. If this was an African-American man, if he was a minority, they would have fired him. They would not have given him the opportunity to resign. That further just shines a lot on the inequalities of the system. They treat certain people different than others, and that’s not fair.”
After posting the video, however, Nige says she received threats from Foerster, telling her not to even consider sharing the video or any information about it.
“After he sent the video, he came off his high and low-key kind of threatened me if I ended up exposing the information,” she said. “So before he could do anything to me, I also felt that needed to be exposed. Just in case I just somehow pop up dead, this story was still going to get out.”
Faced with criticism from people questioning her motivation, Nige told the radio hosts that it’s unacceptable that she has been receiving backlash, explaining that it’s just proving her point of the inequality that African-Americans face.
“We’re treated different, period. All this is doing is just really shining lights on this even more inequalities we have as a a country,” she said. “And then people wonder why a lot of African-Americans don’t support certain things when it comes to this country? Because we’re not treated equally. We’re not. We’re not treated like everyone else. We don’t get paid the same amount as everyone else. People don’t even discipline us the same.”
Nige also said she isn’t enjoying the “fame” that’s come her way, telling ESPN that she and her friends are receiving death threats in the wake of posting the video.
