NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t the first stud his new girlfriend Lauren Wood has dated.
The Shade Room was the first to report that Wood formerly dated actor Shemar Moore.
The then 21-year-old Wood was photographed with Moore back in 2014. She attended two events with the actor during the month of July.
She first hit the red carpet with Moore at the 2014 ESPY Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. The following day she accompanied the actor to the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour at Pacific Design Center. Wood looked gorgeous in the flashback photos.
The two do not appear to have been photographed publicly following the events. Moore and Wood do not follow each other on social media.
27-year-old Beckham and 26-year-old Wood recently became Instagram official on his birthday.
She shared personal photos of the two snuggled up. Wood wrote a message to Beckham, “ “Happy birthday @obj ! Your soul is pure gold . U know I can write lot about you, but I rather keep passing these love letters ? Ceasar home ❤️ PS this blurry will always be my fave pic of us bc wtf is going on lol yumiii af.”
Beckham wrote back, “YUMI…. I’m riding wit u, I got ur back. U kno what it is. LOVE queen!” He added, “?? My slime.”
Wood is a model who has appeared on MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out” for years. The two have been dating for several months but kept it low key until recently.
The couple first caused a stir on social media back in September when Woods posted a sultry photo captioned, “It ain’t a secret, it just ain’t ya bidddnesss ?” Beckham Jr. responded with emojis showing a zipped-up mouth.
The relationship seems to be heating up with Wood recently meeting Beckham’s mom, Heather Van Norman.
Beckham’s mom shared photos hanging with Wood at Beckham’s football game. Wood is smiling pointing to his mom’s jersey. The two took a series of photos and appear to be getting along well.
One fan wrote, “When mama bear approves…. nufff saidddd!!!! Hiii and bye haterssss!!! Two beautiful women” and “That’s really dope. Both the woman of his life supporting that’s how it should be ❤️.”
His mom was spotted haning with Wood’s mom at the game. She shared photos captioned, “Cheers to an amazing Queen! The apple does not fall far from the tree! @detroix_borne #veteransday”
Beckham has remained unbothered despite internet trolls coming for his relationship. He fired back recently, “alllllllottt of the women in these comments whose hating (no disrespect at all) I wouldn’t holla at y’all if a bet was on the line. Stop it I’m very appreciative for women being placed on this Earth… I rallly really mean that, but some of y’all commenting is hitttt.”
Wood recently posted a sultry bikini shot captioned, “I’ll bite when the sunsets.” Beckham quickly jumped in her comments writing, “Bite meee plz!”
