Colin Kaepernick, girlfriend talk Travis Scott's Super Bowl appearance

However, sources told Variety that Travis had "at least one" phone conversation with the sportsman before he confirmed his appearance, and though they did not necessarily agree, they ended the chat with 'mutual respect and understanding'.

Kaepernick's girlfriend, Nessa Dias, also disputed the claim, tweeting, "There is NO mutual respect and there is NO understanding for anyone working against @Kaepernick7 PERIOD".

Super Bowl Llll takes place on February 3, 2019, on CBS - KFSM.

The move is clearly created to counter criticism over his appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show with Maroon 5 - which was finally confirmed, after weeks of speculation, precisely 30 minutes after Scott announced the donation on Sunday.

That's because, according to reports, Scott would only perform if the league would donate $500,000 to the nonprofit organization Dream Corps.

To open the show, Fallon dressed in his Hamilton best and sang "The Story of Tonight" alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rubén J. More than 3,000 deaths and about $90 billion in damages have plagued Puerto Rico since the storm hit in September 2017.

Arsenal make move to sign James Rodriguez from Bayern
The Gunners are willing to let him leave on loan or permanently and have accepted another club will not pay his wages in full. If Arsenal can sell him off in time then they would finally get the money to bring in the much-needed signings.

A delay would likely also be needed in the event of two other possible scenarios: a general election, or a second referendum. Many Conservatives on her side who voted against the Brexit deal on Tuesday quickly said they'd support her leadership.

After months of speculation, Scott was confirmed as a performer at Super Bowl LIII's halftime show earlier this week. Travis felt that the donation to Van Jones' charity Dream Corps, along with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, would do some good. Get the f*** outta here'. "I'm not saying [Mike Brown] deserved to get killed.And I know we're like "fed up" quote/un-quote, with whatever is going on in culture...but at the same time, you gotta just stop putting yourself in positions where you're continuously having this situation go down". Colin was not supportive of Travis performing at the Super Bowl, but their conversation was reportedly "cordial and not hostile".

On Tuesday night he retweeted a tweet from Hot 97's Ebro Darden, who dismissed the notion that the football player had approved the performance.

A petition by Vic Oyedeji has been created (boasting over 85,000 signatures) asking Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi to take a knee during their performance to "show the hundreds of millions of people watching that you stand in solidarity with Kaepernick and all players who protest police brutality".

But now Kaepernick is casting doubt on that reporting.
