Back in September, we posted a story about the budding Twitter romance between iCarly actress Jennette McCurdy and Detroit Pistons hooper Andre Drummond. We caught wind of an interview on JocksAndStilettoJill where shady Jennette aired out all her dirty laundry regarding the relationship. Although the two were seen out and about, hand-in-hand, at the Grove in L.A., apparently Jennette wasn’t really feelin’ Andre like that. The blonde Becky played him ALLLL the way to the left and pretty much called him a social experiment during her interview on the “You Made It Weird” podcast.
It’s a long interview, so we marked some of the important parts for you.
-20:00: Jennette begins to describe how she met Andre.
-1:09:00: Talks about bad/awkward kiss on their first date because his mouth is too big.
-1:20:30: Bad chemistry
-1:22:29: Trying to figure out how to “break-up” with him.
-1:26:32: That awkward moment when Andre bought some bling, got on one knee, and asked Jennette to be his girlfriend.
It’s a dirty game, she didn’t have to put homie on blast like this. A 2-hour podcast?? SMH
As always, there are 2 side to every story, when Andre was asked about his relationship with Jennette, he gave a slightly different account. Flip it to read more…

The Mag: You gave us a romance for these modern times, using social media to garner the affection of iCarly actress Jennette McCurdy. What spurred you to pursue her?
Drummond: It started as a joke with a childhood friend — iCarly was our show, and my friend and I had a thing for Jennette and Miranda Cosgrove. We’d joke about it on Twitter, and Jennette caught wind of it. Turned out she was interested enough to talk to me.
The Mag: It began with you expressing your #WomanCrushWednesday feelings for her. She later wrote in The Wall Street Journal that she found it “gutsy and flattering.” Very gutsy, dude. You weren’t worried about the ribbing?
Drummond: Nah, man. I still have time to be a kid. But I didn’t actually think anything would come of it, to be honest.
The Mag: What effect did the relationship have on your social media following? I’d imagine you now hold the NBA record for most preteen female followers.
Drummond: Yeah, a lot of kids follow me now. Not just kids my age, but younger kids, so I watch my movements [on social media].
The Mag: What’s your relationship status now?
Drummond: Everything is cool. We’re focusing on work and still talking to each other.
Andre might wanna take a listen to that podcast and then answer that status question again.
