Andy Ruiz Jr claims his Twitter account was HACKED after post is shared claiming he ‘loves smoking weed all day long’ and ‘purchasing prostitutes’ – and includes a photo of the former world champion on a drip
- Ruiz took to Instagram to deny it was he who published the post on his Twitter
- His out-of-the-ring issues have been well-documented for several years
- He hasn’t fought since September 2022 but has called out many heavyweights
The post in question shared two videos and two photos – including one of the former world champion hooked up to a drip – and claimed to disclose what Ruiz gets up to in camp.
The post has since been deleted, and the Mexican-American took to Instagram to insist his account had been hacked.
The 33-year-old has been a focus of attention after splitting from his wife with it emerging, according to The Sun, that he had been dating social media star Mayeli Alonso.
It is believed that Ruiz and his wife has been separated for a while, though his relationship with Alonso is said to have angered his former partner.

The post claimed Ruiz ‘loved to smoke weed all day long’ and ‘purchase prostitutes’
‘I wanted to share with you what my life behind camp is really like,’ the Twitter post began. ‘I love to drink codeine and smoke weed all day long.
‘I also love purchasing prostitutes. After this is going on, [I have] meetings to clean my blood to make sure to come out clean when VADA comes to my training camps.’
Ruiz also spoke of his own personal disappointment after losing to Anthony Joshua in 2019, admitting he failed to prepare properly for the fight after winning the original bout.
It’s unclear who allegedly hacked the account and why the shared the words and images that were posted.
Ruiz had registered back-to-back victories since losing to Anthony Joshua (right) in 2019
In the ring, Ruiz hasn’t fought since September 2022 when he beat Luis Ortiz via unanimous decision.
He’s been targeting a return and even made a mock poster of a fake fight agreement to take on Tyson Fury, forcing Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, to deny a fight had been agreed.
He asked for a rematch when losing to Joshua, but that never materislaised, thought he has logged back-to-back victories since.
Ruiz beat Chris Arreola on points before his victory over Ortiz, though it remains unclear who his next bout will be against.
