“You know I’m 17, right.”
“Well, we can still talk. But I can’t see you until you’re 18.”
“Actually, 17 is legal in New York.”
This is allegedly what is going on between New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez and Eliza Kruger, a 17 year old high school student from Connecticut.
According to today’s Deadspin.com and New York Post, Sanchez, 24, and Kruger are in a relationship – they’ve had dates at the famous Nobu restaurant in New York City and even overnight stays in Sanchez’s New Jersey home.
They met at a nightclub on New Year’s Eve, and Kruger actually posted on her Facebook page, that “MARK F—ING SANCHEZ” texted her.
Eliza told Deadspin.com: “We went back to his place in Jersey after dinner. He lives on a golf course. There was a big storm.” She also took photos of a bed in his bedroom that you could tell had been (at least) slept in as “proof” of their huddle just days later.
Asked if she “hooked up” with Sanchez that night at Nobu during the first week of January, Eliza said, “Yeah,” albeit somewhat reluctantly, according to Deadspin.
When a Deadspin editor told her he was going to research the legality of the relationship, Eliza reportedly replied that the age of sexual consent in New Jersey is “16. I checked.”
“He’s a really nice guy, you know,” Eliza told the site. “He’s one of the kindest people, and he’s a genuine person.”
