Janay Rice, wife of former NFL player Ray Rice, took to Instagram this morning to scold the NFL.
Janay said that she woke up this morning feeling like she was living inside a nightmare. Janay blamed the league and the media for causing her family embarrassment. One person she didn’t blame: Husband Ray Rice.
Janay writes: “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!”
This statement shouldn’t be too surprising. Shortly after the first video surfaced, showing Ray Rice dragging his unconscious soon-to-be wife out of an elevator, Janay Rice released a statement saying that she was “deeply regrets the role that she played the night of the incident.”
Are you surprised by Janay’s statements? She obviously loves her husband, despite what he’s done to her, and she’s now trying to cope with the fact that Ray Rice will probably never play in the NFL again. It’s a tough position to be in.
The one bright side from Janay’s message is that she seems to be keeping her head up. She’s angry but she promises to “grow” and show the world real love. Hopefully she can get there, with or without Ray Rice.
