Oh No! Odell Beckham JR CAUGHT Buying Fake Jordans For His Pops?! [PHOTO]

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham JR is having a really bad week.

After being suspended after a rough game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, now he is being accused of buying fake Jordans from his own father for Christmas.

The alleged report comes from an article from SoleCollector which noticed the gift along with the caption, "Thx Son!!! Early Xmas gift."

The "OVO" Air Jordan 6 isn't any more real today than it was when it was confirmed fake by Jordan Brand reps back in 2014. In fact, the shoe is a replica based on an April Fool's joke photoshop that was posted by sneaker website Sneaker Freaker. Unfortunately, the knockoffs are still being produced and unsuspecting shoppers are paying top dollar for them.

Surely, some will suggest that Beckham has an inside hookup because of his status as a celebrity athlete, but word from the brand itself trumps that optimism. Beckham is used to burning DBs on Sundays, but in this case, he was the one who was burned.

Say it ain't so Odell. Say it ain't so.

Judge for yourself below.
