Daviyon Nixon Girlfriend, Dating
On May 3, 2021, Lyric Ver, a Kenosha resident, wrote on Facebook, “I actually woke up next to a Carolina Panther this morning Daviyon Nixon.” Because of the squared heart emoji, Nixon’s followers assumed the defensive tackle was in a relationship.
This is far from the first time their friendship has been recognized. Ver has been by the NFL rookie’s side since his pre-draft days. She also shared it on Facebook to express her congratulations on her boyfriend’s NFL debut. Nixon did not appear on Ver’s page until November 22, 2020, so the couple’s dating status is unknown.
On this day, she publicly declared her love for the football player by posting an Instagram video with the caption, “In case you missed it, Daviyon Nixon, for the touchdown, proud girlfriend moment.”
On National Girlfriend Day in 2020, Nixon’s supporters first heard him use the term “girlfriend.” “I’ve been to hell and back with this one, happy national girlfriend day baby girl,” the DT wrote on Vera’s behalf.
