Paige Spiranac on Mickelson: "I'm now anti-Phil because that's pig s***!"

Paige Spiranac has revealed Phil Mickelson told her when he blocked her it was “by mistake” or “a glitch” – only for Lefty to go ahead and block her again.

Speaking on the most recent edition of the bunkered podcast, the social media superstar revealed that she met the six-time major champion and at first believed he was “really nice”.

So much so, that even when his legendary caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay bought her a bottle of water at the Phoenix Open the influencer believed there was “a fine relationship between us”.

However, when she later attempted to tag Lefty in a social media post she found out she was blocked. After “kicking up a stink”, Lefty reportedly told her it was “down to a glitch”.

Only for Lefty to just block her again the very next day.

Now she’s anti-Phil. And even claims that he is “fake”.

She told the podcast: “I met Phil years prior. He was really nice, he came up to me, I was working with Mizzen+Main at the time and so he was like, ‘That’s really cool that we have that connection. I love what you do on social media.’ And so I was like, ‘Thanks Phil, you’re awesome’.

“A year later, I saw him at the Phoenix Open and same thing. He walked by, Bones brought me a water and it was really cool. So, I always thought there was like a fine relationship between us.”

“I was like, ‘Let’s go Phil’, gassing him up, saying the nicest things about him but then I was looking [on social media] and I was like, ‘I can’t freaking tag him. Why can’t I tag him?’ So, I was looking and looking and I clicked on somebody else’s tag and it said ‘blocked’.”

“I kind of made a little bit of a stink about it because it was so weird. If I should be blocked by someone, it should be somebody like Bryson. I have publicly criticised Bryson and that’s kind of it.

"I’m actually fairly pro players. I try to see both sides of it, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I’ve never said anything bad about Phil and so I was like ‘I just don’t get this’. It was kind of upsetting.

“He DM’d me the next day and he was like, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know what happened. It must have been a glitch in the system’ and I was like, ‘Okay, fine, congrats on your PGA win’. Next day, blocked again. Not only that but he blocked me on Instagram, too.”

She continued: “I am anti-Phil now because that’s just pig-s—t. “Now I just say whatever about Phil because I think he’s a little – I can already see the headlines now, “Paige says Phil’s fake” - but I think he is.

"He just projects a certain way in his interviews and then he’s like thumbs-upping the fans. I don’t know, if he cared so much about the fans and what he’s doing, why jump ship?

“I’ve been gaslit and I’ve been ghosted but I have no idea what that was. It was the weirdest thing. I mean, just keep me blocked then. I don’t care.

“But like I say, I have never said anything bad about Phil... until now. Because if you block me, I’m coming for you.”
