Hot 97 personality Nessa Diab isn’t feeding into the drama Ray Lewis is fueling regarding her boyfriend Colin Kaepernick.

Just glimpse these tweets and see if she cares.

Yeah, Diab isn’t here for Lewis blaming her for her boyfriend’s continued free agency.

Lewis claimed on his Showtime series that the Baltimore Ravens were this close to signing Kaepernick. But thanks to Diab’s recent tweet, things came to a screeching halt.

“We were going to close the deal to sign him,” Lewis said on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” on Tuesday, Sept. 5, according to ESPN. “[Majority owner] Steve Bisciotti said, ‘I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.’”

However, the two-time Super Bowl champ said the deal never happened and apparently Diab’s tweet comparing Lewis and Bisciotti to Samuel L. Jackson’s house slave character and Leonardo DiCaprio’s vicious slave master character in “Django Unchained” is to blame.

“His girl [Diab] goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed,” Lewis said. “Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?’”

Since Nessa’s response, however, Lewis has remained silent rather than striking back on social media.
