Former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice breaks his silence for the first time since his indefinite suspension from the NFL.
During a phone interview with ESPN, the disgraced athlete said…
“‘I have to be strong for my wife,’ said Rice. ‘[Janay] 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.’
His wife added…
‘I love my husband. I support him. I want people to respect our privacy in this family matter.'”
Later on CNN, Rice noted that he is just trying to stay strong for his loved ones.
Over the weekend, new footage of Rice surfaced on TMZ aka Big Brother, showcasing the disturbing event of him knocking out his then girlfriend Janay Palmer. The aftermath resulted not only in his indefinite suspension from the Ravens but loss of his childhood dream to compete in the NFL. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
