Ray Rice’s wife Janay Rice has responded to the fallout of a new video emerging that showed the former NFL star physically assaulting and knocking her out in an elevator. Rice was subsequently cut by his Baltimore Ravens team and suspended indefinitely by the NFL, on top of enduring a public raking in the media and social media.
On her private Instagram account, which the Baltimore Sun is reporting that it was intended to be public, Janay posted the following:
“I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!”
