The Cincinnati Bengals will win the Super Bowl. At least, that’s what Anitta guarantees. During her appearance on The Tonight Show, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, the singer went all-in on the Ohio team’s title over the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL finals. The reason? “One of her men” plays there.
“The Bengals are going to win for sure. You can bet all your money on it. And you know how I know they’re going to win? Because one of my men plays there. And I know they’re going to win because I’m going to make sure he has one.” great night before”, said Anitta.
It didn’t take long for internet sleuths to go after the singer’s alleged affair. And everything indicates that this is Tyler Boyd, wide receiver for the Bengals. They follow each other on Instagram and have exchanged likes and affectionate comments.

Never heard of the player? Alright, you’re not the only one: Tyler isn’t a big media name in the NFL. He is 27 years old and started in the NFL in 2016, when he was selected in the second round of the draft by the Ohio team. He previously served at the University of Pittsburgh between 2013 and 2015. He has probably become more famous since people discovered that Anitta is dating a bengals player.
The wide receiver was a supporting player for the first two years of his professional career, and AJ Green was considered the protagonist of the wide receiver group. His career only changed after 2017, when he became the team’s top receiver and surpassed 1000 yards for the next two years.
The Bengals, however, were going through a turbulent period, and became the worst team in the league in 2019. But, starting with the 2020 draft, the franchise picked up new players, recovered and, this year, reached the Super Bowl. After two runners-up, both for the San Francisco 49ers, the Cincinnati team tries its first title.
Boyd, by the way, is one of the team captains. In the current season, he has 67 receptions and five touchdowns with 828 receiving yards. In 2019, he signed a new four-year, $43 million deal with the Bengals.
On Instagram, the player has 152,000 followers, but he doesn’t usually post much about his personal life. It gives priority to Bengals play and match posts.
The Super Bowl, between the Bengals and Los Angeles Rams, will be played on February 13.
