Detroit Tigers star Justin Verlander briefly addressed the controversy surrounding the leaked, naked photos of himself and girlfriend Kate Upton on Wednesday.
Just don't expect the athlete to comment on it any further. Ever.
Verlander, 31, and Upton, 22, were among the many stars victimized by a rogue hacker still on the lam. Naked photos of them surfaced online Sunday.
Will it shake the confidence of the Detroit Tigers pitching ace?
“Instead of everybody kind of sneaking around and getting questions at specific times, it’s just easier to say I’m not commenting on that," Verlander said.
"I’m trying to win a pennant," he added, not worrying about the possible phishing scam. “I’m not going to comment on my personal life. I never have and I never plan on it."
"I keep my personal life personal. The focus for me is on the Detroit Tigers. I don’t want to take focus away from this team and what we’re trying to accomplish.”
