Wes Welker, NFL Star, Admits To Dressing Up As Britney Spears For High School Pep Rally (VIDEO)

An abashed Wes Welker said this week that he dressed up as Britney Spears -- complete with blond wig and tiny sports bra -- to entertain his peers when he was a teen.

In an interview with Dan Hellie, host of "NFL Total Access," the 32-year-old NFL star admitted that he masqueraded as the pop star during a pep rally at his Oklahoma high school while he was a student there.

“Gosh, I’d love to say false there, but I did… they have me on video,” the Denver Broncos wide receiver told Hellie in response to questions about the high school dance routine, adding: "But I've already bought them off, so you won't be seeing that anything soon."

It looks like Welker may have been cheated out of his money, however, as a video of him dressed up and shaking his booty like Spears was actually leaked online by News9.com last year:

According to the news outlet, Welker danced to the pop princess' hit song "(You drive me) crazy" in 1999 during his senior year at Heritage Hall High School in Oklahoma City. Welker was reportedly a football star at his school -- and quite the prankster.

"He was a superstar in the homecoming pep assembly lip sync contest in his senior year," the footballer's former teacher Betsy Horn told News9.com. "He was a backup dancer. Probably the one that brought the house down with his portrayal of Britney Spears."
