San Francisco 49ers star quarterback and controversy magnet Colin Kaepernick is making headlines again, incurring a nice $10,000 fine from the NFL.

His alleged offense? Wearing non-Bose headphones during a post-game press conference Sunday, violating the league's big licensing deal! OMG!

Colin Kaepernick, Headphones
Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers has caused controversy before, but for wearing the wrong brand of headphones?

Because of the NFL and Bose joining forces, players can't promote competing products, like Beats by Dre, on the field or during official press conferences.

The 26-year-old, who has an endorsement deal with Beats by Dre, says he wore its bright pink headphones in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Sunday.

He also has an endorsement deal with that product, and appears in a prominent TV advertising campaign for it, wearing the Beats to block out the haters.

Kaepernick, shown wearing the offending item above, addressed the fine Thursday, Instagramming a screen grab of ESPN's article about his $10,000 fine.

"I support breast cancer awareness!" he wrote. "My grandma is a survivor! ……. *shrugs* some things are not important! #IDontGetTired #WhoDoYouLove #Se7enPounds"

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has experienced a meteoric rise to fame in the past 12 months, but is there a major scandal brewing?

While there has been plenty of speculation about his love life, there are now rumors that a sex tape floating around - as well as a pregnant baby mama.

Celebrity sports and gossip site Terez Owens is reporting that the football star has a love child on the way, and also a sex tape, with Stephanie Santiago.

She is reportedly seen in the athlete's bed posting a nude selfie, on the same comforter seen in the Colin Kaepernick nude ESPN the Magazine shoot.

The site says Santiago is "a 27-year-old gold digger" who he met just a few weeks ago. Prior to that, Kaepernick was romantically linked to a slew of athletes.

She's also a few weeks pregnant and already living with him. Allegedly.

Is there any truth to the rumor(s)? We'll have to wait and see ... but we can only imagine how this story would blow up if it were even partially accurate.
