‘You’re going to get me in trouble in Miami:’ Pitbull becomes a Gator!


Don’t freak.

Everything is going to be OK.

But Pitbull did something very Benedict Arnold-esque. But somehow we don’t think this move will affect his album sales.

On Gator Nation’s Twitter account Thursday, many sports fans were aghast to see the man also known as Armando Christian Perez receiving not one but two jerseys, one for football (blue), the other for basketball (orange).

“You’re going to get me in trouble in Miami!” laughed Pit, looking over both shirts emblazoned with “305.”

“305 ’til I die in Gainesville!” the “Give Me Everything” singer shouted, with a big smile. “Woo-hoo!”

So what the heck was Mr. Worldwide doing there? The SLAM charter school founder made an appearance at the University of Florida on Tuesday for a speaking engagement on campus for Hispanic Heritage Month, then ended up touring the UF athletics department.

“I want to say thank you very much. I appreciate it,” he said graciously into the camera. “As a Miami boy I have a whole lot of respect for which is UD [former Gator Udonis Haslem]. He was a Gator, so UD look at me, I’m playing for the Gators!”
