San Fransisco 49ers' Christian McCaffrey is currently the highest-paid running back in the league, earning a whopping $16 million per season but even with his impressive salary, he still couldn't afford to buy a Super Bowl Suite for his fiancée, Olivia Culpo.
McCaffrey, 27, and Culpo, 31, are set to tie the knot this offseason, so they may be saving up for their honeymoon.
According to Marca, it was McCaffrey's mother, Lisa, who revealed that the couple couldn't afford a suite.
"We looked into a suite and none of us can afford it," Lisa said.
"Not even Christian, money bags over there - nor money bags Olivia," she said on the latest episode of her podcast with Ashley Adamson called Your Mom. "So, we're not in a suite, I'll tell you that right now."
Despite this, Culpo was not willing to watch the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs from the stands and bought a $2 million suite as a birthday gift for McCaffrey’s mom.
Culpo took to Instagram Stories on Friday to set the record straight and said that she did indeed pay for the suite and that her not being able to afford it was "fake news".
Culpo, who has a net worth of $10 million, tagged her soon-to-be mother-in-law in her stories to inform her of the birthday gift.
The suites at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where the 58th Super Bowl is set to be held, are said to range in price from $800,000 to $2,000,000.
The McCaffreys typically watch games from suites, but this time they opted not to.
McCaffrey's father, Ed, previously won three Super Bowl rings while playing for the 49ers in the nineties, and the father-son duo could make history by winning a championship with the same team.
