Following the news of Ray Rice’s possible return to the NFL, his wife Janay Rice has revealed her side of the story concerning the life-altering events that occurred in Atlantic City, NJ earlier this year.
In an interview with ESPN, Janay went into full detail on the stages leading up to the former Baltimore Raven’s physical assault in the elevator on February 19.
After the club, our friends from Baltimore, Ray and I decided to go to the late-night restaurant in the casino. Ray and I were bickering. We were drunk and tired and while I know that some people may find it hard to believe, none of the six of us can remember exactly what Ray and I were arguing about. It was that insignificant. As we were arguing, he was on his phone and not looking at me. I went to reach for his phone, and when he grabbed it back, he spit at me and I slapped him. We got into the elevator and what happened inside is still foggy to me. The only thing I know — and I can’t even say I “remember” because I only know from what Ray has told me — is that I slapped him again and then he hit me. I remember nothing else from inside the elevator. The next thing I do recall is being in the casino lobby, surrounded by cops.
The mother came under scrutiny for remaining by Ray’s side to which she took to her Instagram account to break her silence at the time the video footage was unveiled.
