Watson and Anais made headlines after they were spotted together in September 2019 at the NFL star’s birthday party. While their relationship was new at the time the quarterback is not the first athlete Anais has dated and she is not the first IG model he’s been linked to.

Anais was previously with San Antonio Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray before they had a messy breakup in which he publicly called her a “gold digger.” She later responded via a video in which she defended her character and wanted clarification on the definition of a gold digger because she said that is not her as she came from money.
