According to the website Deadspin.com, the identity of the 17-year-old that allegedly had a relationship with has removed the lid on the identity of the 17-year-old girl that claimed that she hooked up with Mark Sanchez, a current star of the NFL’s New York Jets.
The girl is the daughter of hedge fund tycoon, Konrad “Chip” Kruger. Her name is Eliza Kruger and brags that when it comes to the issue of minors, she knows her books pretty well. She told the website that when Sanchez said that he wouldn’t want to see her until she is 18, she reminded him that 17 was the legal age limit in New York. With that hurdle cleared, she said that she went on a date with Sanchez and later they hooked up.
Eliza thinks Sanchez is all that she can find in a man. During her interview with Deadspin, she revealed that, “He’s (Sanchez) a really nice guy, you know. He’s one of the kindest people, and he’s a genuine person”. Eliza’s father, Konrad, is a partner of the financial firm Five Mile Capital Partners. He was given a hefty sum of $48 million last year as a bonus. That means Eliza shouldn’t be having any problems with money.
Sanchez has not made any formal comment on the issue since it broke this week. His NFL team believe that the issue is their quarterback’s private matter which should be handled as such.
