Rice’s wife slams ban for violence against her

BALTIMORE –– Janay Rice, wife of suspended NFL player Ray Rice, apparently posted a statement today on Instagram calling the situation a “nightmare”.

“To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific,” she wrote.

The Baltimore Ravens released Ray Rice yesterday after a video surfaced showing him knocking her out with a punch in February, and dragging her limp body out of a casino elevator. In response to texts sent to him today, Rice texted CNN sports journalist Rachel Nichols: “I’m just holding strong for my wife and kid; that’s all I can do right now.”

His wife’s Instagram post, reported by various media, appeared to be authentic.

“No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family,” she wrote. “To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing.”

She added in the Instagram post: “THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get.”

Ray Rice was originally suspended for two games, a punishment that many considered too lenient. Rice was just weeks away from returning to the gridiron when the new video surfaced, and the Ravens and the NFL acted more severely.

Rice was released by the Ravens, and the NFL suspended him indefinitely from football.

The new video shows the football player punching Janay Rice, who was his fiancée at the time, inside an elevator at a hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, seven months ago. She appears to lunge at him, and he strikes her so hard she drops to the ground face first, then he appears to drag her limp body out of the elevator. There is no audio on the TMZ tape.

However, The Associated Press reported today that the news organization had viewed a longer, “higher-quality” video with audio given to it by an anonymous source that showed the couple yelling obscenities at each other in the elevator.

In the video AP viewed, she spits on him, and he punches her, the story said.

After Janay Rice collapses, Rice appears to pull her out of the elevator and is met by hotel staff, according to the AP.

One of the staffers can be heard saying: “She’s drunk, right?” and then: “No cops.” Rice did not respond, the AP said.

At a Press conference in July after the first video emerged, Rice said his actions were “inexcusable” and that the two were in counselling.

“We’re taking the necessary steps to move forward,” Rice said then. “My job is to lead my family. My job is to lead my wife. My job is to lead in whatever I do. And If I’m not being the example, then my family crumbles.”

    What do abused people do?

    Go along with the program so it doesn’t escalate.

    What else did people expect her to say?

    Now that public opinion is going against him, she’s really going to catch it now.

    I hope she had an exit strategy.
