The woman who released the video of former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman coach Chris Foerster snorting a white substance off a desk said she did so to expose racial inequality, she said on ESPN Radio on Wednesday.
She also said she has other footage, and that the published video was just "the tip of the iceberg."
Kijuana Nige said she met the coach in Oxnard, Calif., while the Dolphins were using the Dallas Cowboys' training facility during the week of Sept. 10 because of Hurricane Irma. She said she was dating Foerster and that they had gotten together multiple times, with Foerster even inviting her to the Dolphins' Oct. 1 game in London.
Nige said Foester, 55, used her body "as his cocaine platter," and that she always planned to somehow expose Foerster.
“My motive was to basically expose the inequalities in the system,” she said. “It’s not just the NFL. The inequalities that come with being a minority compared with a white privileged person in America in general. This is shining light on the inequalities we have as a country. We don’t get paid the same amount as everyone else."
Nige also said that Foerster threatened her if she planned to do anything to harm him, noting that Foerster shot the video himself before sending it to her.
After he sent the video, he came off his high and low-key kind of threatened me if I ended up exposing the information. Before he could do anything to me, I felt that needed to be exposed. Just in case I somehow pop up dead, that story was still going to get out.”
Foerster resigned Monday, a day after the video was released.
“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior," the Dolphins said in a statement. "After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”
Foerster had been an assistant coach in the NFL since 1992, working for seven different teams. His second stint with the Dolphins started in 2016.
