New Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant denied a Sports Ilustrated story about the line of questioning during the pre-draft interview between the Miami Dolphins and Bryant. SI reported Friday that Jeff Ireland's question about whether Bryant's mother was a prostitute came after Bryant was asked what his father did for a living.
According to SI, this is how the line of questioning went, starting first with Ireland asking Bryant what his father did for a living:
Bryant: "My dad was a pimp."
Ireland: "What did your mom do [for a living]?
Bryant: "She worked for my dad."
Ireland: "Your mom was a prostitute?"
Bryant was told about the report Friday between practices and denied that's how the question was brought up by the Dolphins general manager.
"No, sir," Bryant said. "That was a lie."
Bryant refused to comment further on the controversy, and in fact, would not comment on two other questions about it.
"No disrespect," Bryant said, "but I don't really want to talk about it."
