A few hours ago former running back NFL star Ray Rice made his first official statement after being cut from the Ravens and suspended from the NFL indefinitely. Within the last 24 hours his two game suspension turned into him losing his job after video of him hitting his then fiancee Janay Palmer and knocking her out cold inside an elevator leaked online.
In a recent interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson he stated:
“I have to be strong with my wife. She is so strong. We are in good spirits. We have a lot of people praying for us and we’ll continue to support each other. I have to be there for (Janay) and my family right now and work through this.”
Although his wife released a statement earlier today via Instagram she also spoke out during his interview stating that she will continue to support her husband.
“I love my husband. I support him. I want people to respect our privacy in this family matter.”
It’s safe to say that Janya is going to defend her husbands actions regardless of what the public says or thinks about her. I can’t wait to see where this couple end up within the next five years….
