Abigail Ratchford says she’s just friends with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Ratchford says: “He’s a nice guy, really funny we’re just friends, though.”
TMZ Sports spoke to the Instagram model and got this from the conversation:
The “banging or not” rumors started earlier this week when Johnny was seen leaving an L.A. club at 2:00 AM with Ratchford in tow … making some think there was a new celebrity couple in Hollywood.
Well, we spoke to Abi … and she tells TMZ Sports her and Johnny’s relationship is just like his current NFL career … no one is scoring.
The pair was caught leaving a West Hollywood nightclub together before Manziel flew to Miami with his friends. Ratchford was not on the private flight with Johnny and his crew. According to her Twitter, she stayed home and watched movies.
Ratchford became Instagram famous for posting various videos and photos of herself that show off her cleavage.

Manziel has been waived by the Browns but he’s still one of the most famous faces in the country. Surely being pictured with him will help Ratchford transition from Instagram model to real model. And, while Ratchford’s career is on the up, Manziel’s currently “untouchable,” but not in the good way.
The teams that used to have interest in signing him now won’t look at him until he cleans up his personal act:
“As recently as early January, league sources say at least two teams — one being the Cowboys — had legitimate interest in Manziel,” Emily Kaplan wrote on The MMQB with Peter King. “That was before the alleged assault on (ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley). Now, those same sources say that unless Manziel seeks treatment, he’s ‘untouchable.’ His actions since Crowley’s accusations surfaced — chugging bottles at nightclubs from Miami to West Hollywood, dancing at a strip club — demonstrate such apparent disregard, it raises the question: If he never plays football again, does he even care?”
