These messages surfaced on the account of Paige Jordae, who is known online as "Dream Paige". They included communications from Edwards and a snapshot of a positive pregnancy test. The nature of the player's messages has been particularly shocking.

Edwards allegedly wrote, "I can't do this", "I don't want a baby", and "get an abortion lol". Jordae informed him that she had previously had an abortion two years ago, a decision she deeply regrets. Edwards suggested that she should take abortion pills and even record the process. Jordae also posted a screenshot of a bank transfer from the NBA star, amounting to $100,000.

In response to the controversial leak, the Minnesota Timberwolves player released an official statement, in which he did not deny the conversation:

In a rush of emotions, I made comments that are not reflective of what I believe and the person I aspire to be. Every woman should be supported and empowered to make decisions about their bodies and what's best for them. I am currently addressing my personal issues and won't comment any further on this matter - he wrote on Platform X.

The scandal coincidentally broke out just a week after Edwards' girlfriend, Jeanine Robel, announced on social media that she is expecting a child with him.
