Ray and Janay Rice

Ray Rice and his wife Janay Palmer Rice opened up to Gayle King about the much-publicized domestic abuse incident that cost Ray his NFL career.

Ray and Janay discussed the incident with King in an interview on CBS This Morning that aired on Tuesday.

The former Baltimore Ravens running back lost his job after TMZ.com published a video that showed Ray violently assaulting Janay in a casino elevator in 2014.

Ray, 31, married Janay weeks after the incident, but his public image never recovered from the bad publicity.

Ray initially received a two-game suspension but the Ravens cut him loose after the public uproar in response to a second video published by TMZ in September 2014.

Ray appealed his termination and won his case, but no team will touch him. He is considering retiring from professional football.

Ray Rice

"I'll be the first one to say it. I don't have to retire to tell you I'm done with football," Ray told King. "The pressure I was under of being a star -- that was the person I hated the most."

Ray later revealed he doesn't think he ever deserved the opportunity to return to the NFL after what he did to his wife.

He said he believes the NFL "is doing the work" to stop acts of domestic violence by its players.

When King asked Ray about his personal family history of domestic violence, he said he recalled seeing his own mother in dysfunctional relationships and he ended up "normalizing abnormal behavior".

"I was a man at 11, and then at 21, I got drafted and became a boy," he said. "When you get to the physical abuse, if it's one time, that's still one time too many."

He added that he hates the person he was in the video, and Janay said she didn't consider the violence to be abuse.

"It was never a thought whether I was going to leave or not because I knew that wasn't him in that moment," Janay added. "This is someone I've known since I was 15. I knew that we had work to do, and I was willing to move forward and put in the work."

Ray and Janay viewed the now infamous video of former NFL player Kareem Hunt kicking and slapping a woman in a hotel earlier this year.

Although he hasn't reached out to Hunt, Ray said he would talk to the now unemployed player to share his experiences and to help prevent future abuse against women.

 

  • KLove

    while i dont agree with domestic violence...i dont believe folks should lose their livelihoods behind it......

  • Yup, I said it

    Bye. I want them and Cardi's /Offsets to go away with their dysfunctional neurotic relationships. If they like the dysfunction, then I love it.

  • RaginB

    How you don’t consider that abuse? did she see the same video??

  • Myopinion

    Why not? I do...he might still be doing it if he hadn't got caught

  • Yup, I said it

    He probably still is. Look at how crazy she looks still sitting there scared. She doesn't look relaxed or at ease or happy. They have been in this neurotic union since 15 yrs old. They both will need years of therapy.

  • HotInCleveland

    I wish a MOFO would! All I have to say is: it is good to have friends (mainly crazy cousins) in low places.

  • Myopinion

    That was the psyche playing tricks on her at the time. Most women don't think that at first..

  • BingBangBoom

    By her demeanor and those braids I'm sure it's still a scuffle every now and then. I'm not totally convinced. I've seen the video and that's not a one and done technique he did to you girl... but good for them..

  • HotInCleveland

    Right! It appeared that he close lined her a time or two before.

  • Carrington

    I can fix this and they ain't got to pay me NOTHIN...
    Dear Entitled MFs who ain't used to $hit, but finally get something and then start thinking you run the world and that we all want to touch the hem of your garment,
    You ain't nobody damn daddy! Keep your hands to yourself.

  • Coy little wink

    She reminds me of skylar diggs and he reminds me of a bytch azz ninja

    But hold up...I didn't watch the hunt video but I thought he merely pushed someone into her

  • SpillyNillie

    Her body language does seem a bit off...kinda like this ninja lying...he pushed me up against the wall before the camera crew arrived!

  • stav

    His wife has some rough/manly looking features from that angle.

  • Ryan

    He probably blames her for the whole thing. Dumbass.

  • tintin

    This is how people talk and act when they go broke and lose it all.

    I'm sure at home he harasses his wife and blames her for everything. He probably don't hit her but he is yelling like crazy at that woman

    They can fake it in the video but i can guarantee you with all the millions lost, they ain't happy one bit.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I feel a little bad for him because his actions cost him millions of dollars. I wonder what he does for a living now.

    And he hit his true ride or die. She's not some thirsty sack chaser because she has stuck with him for richer or for poorer. Hopefully he doesn't abuse her anymore.

  • BingBangBoom

    Look you said it!

  • Yup, I said it

    She look like she scared he is him a smack her right their in front of the camera. They both need to quit playing and get serious help because they have brought children into their mess.

  • Yup, I said it

    Oh she is thristy just to keep sitting there. She values Ray more than she values herself or her kids.

  • Guest

    Her braids look nice. That is all I got for this. New Post!

  • BingBangBoom

    She act like she was smacked and went about the day..

  • SpillyNillie

    Judging by the video that couldn't have been his FIRST time putting his hands on her. He felt too comfortable for it to be the "first" time. That's a lie!

  • KLove

    maybe.....i just dont understand why he needs to lose his livelihood behind it...its too much.....i will paraphrase the Bible: "take away a mans millstone (his livelihood), you might as well kill him"....they took his millstone fam

  • Yup, I said it

    His career should be the least of his concerns. Ray is lucky he didn't go to jail. If Janae was a Sarah or a Sally he would still be doing time. Also the damage that he has done to his kids and family should have made him seek help not being blackballed by the NFL.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    "Janay said she didn't consider the violence to be abuse."
    ______________________________

    she seems to be struggling with the denial and/or the acceptance of what happened To HER. that's all i'll say about this young lady.

  • BingBangBoom

    Chile it's going to be tough for them to shake this one. Especially since the incident happened, everyone now references to domestic abuse as "Ray Riceing" someone.. Lmao

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She look like a person whose dirty laundry has been viewed over a million times on social media and wants to revamp her and her man's image...nope not gonna happen Ray Rice better invest in a Wing Stop or somethin...

  • JazzyBossyJen
  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I've said the same thing before considered myself a "strong" woman with brothers and cousins but it has happened to me before...had a nicca throw a hot beverage on me that gave me 1st degree burns...when I tell you he moved out of his shared apartment in under an hour after it happened cause he knew the wrath of men was gonna be on him...nicca called me from a blocked number 10 weeks later saying he was sorry, broke and scared. I told him to start sucking dyck for dollars...FOH....

  • Anonymouse

    It must really be hard on them to have their entire relationship judged by one incident.

    I’m rooting for them and hope that they make it. That’s a lot of pressure for any relationship.

  • Mia Said so

    Say it louder for the people in the back.. please I will never understand staying with a person that hit ME I will be to scared for them..

  • Myopinion

    Since we are quoting scripture: Ephesians 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
    29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church

  • HotInCleveland

    Wow! I’m glad you had a support system and the strength not to take him back.

  • Myopinion

    He should have thought about that first. I want to know is he remorseful or just sorry

  • Chicagowise

    I don't care what she says. He's been poundcaking her since she was 15. It's been going on so long, she doesn't consider it abuse and never considered leaving him.

    She has what I call, Acute Tina Turner Syndrome. She's taking his shyt because she wants to prove she's different from the other people who walked away from him. The truth is, she has no self-esteem and a dangerously warped sense of reality.

  • Chicagowise

    I'm rooting for her remaining brain cells to get a clue.

  • dru and neil

    Screw the relationship, I just don’t like men who punch women in the face.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, Sandra mention that her folks been married for decades. when you have that example/model you can learn to believe in 'committing' to your relationship, no matter what.
    i used to think that way because my parents been married FOREVER. I had to learn that no man automatically deserved the treatment my dad got from my mom, if he couldn't treat me the way my dad treated my mom. it's a fine distinction, but a Very important one. one thing i will give my folks credit for... they never encouraged any of us to stay in a dysfunctional relationship, married or otherwise. they Always told a nig, send her back home if you don't want her, but don't put your hands on her!

  • dru and neil

    It’s nice to hear a story of a woman not having it!

  • Lady” Youngblood

    You took the words right out my mouth.He probably resents her for losing his career and thinks/acts like it’s her fault. My kids father resents me for taking out child support on his a$$ can you imagine millions lost. He still hits her

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this part. i'm all for romance and, trust, i'm that ride or die chick you want on your team. HOWEVER, what i will NEVER tolerate again in this life, is a fool tryna dominate me by talking crazy to me, trying to manipulate or control me, and most certainly have your dnr/burial/cremation plans in order if you think you gonna physically harm me even once! nicca, which suit you think your mama want you 'laid out' in?????

  • Rainbowbelow

    If that's how she wants to see him, so be it. I just hope she realize that the next "incident" might be the final "incident".

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    that last part got me LMAO!

  • dru and neil

    Good for you, because we got to think about the kind of man who hits women. It’s a very cowardly thing to do, he doesn’t deserve a ride or die woman. But I remember her own mama backing them up back when this incident took place. Being an NFL family was more important than her daughter’s own safety. Way too many women let this stuff slide.

    2 things.
    1. Gayle is a better interviewer than Oprah.
    2. Ray abused his domestic partner. A Black queen. His day one since 15. Kareem was with his pale princess who was trying to protect him from the underage drunk thots his friends brought to the room. but noooo he went out his way to kick the N word hurling Becky on camera.
    3. It's not the same. But both are idiots tho.

    Ray cost himself millions of dollars that could have gone toward his family, and even his kid's kids one day. And that's money he'll never see even if he does the everything right from now on. Such a waste of a great opportunity. Sad.

    im'a just say what my gut reaction is to this interview w/Gail.

    *clears thoak* ........it looks like a hostage video, and Janay comes across as defensive 'cause she got Stockholm syndrome.

    *runs out, ducking rotten tomatoes* https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5a16feb7886870b58e876a7ffc6b264e7419e743bb55ec579123b82d4a427799.gif

    i get it. it's all about one's priorities. .. i've always been an go-getter and blessed to have my own. that being said, i've STILL found myself in an abusive relationship because i truly thought that person was my "soul mate" *insert eye roll* ...even when i knew i had to get away from him, it took me a long time because i was still 'tied' to him. but when i finally got free, i never looked back!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    right. "cost himself"

  • Shamwow

    After looking at the video their lips look split and healed. Idk I hope all is well with them. They always seemed to me like a couple that fight. I have a cousin like that, they are not together and hardly apart but they fight and sometimes you have to stop her from jumping on him. I’m like ugh foolishness.

  • ohdearme

    On point, don't duck!

  • ohdearme

    Yeah I'm sure the powers that be are just waiting to hear from him! LOL thanks for the laugh Ray and rag doll.

  • Shamwow

    NFL probably paying him for these gigs. Written off in taxes as activism.

  • Applebum

    I went to school with Ray. New Rochelle High School. And his wife is from Mount Vernon, next city over. I believe that they’ve always been fighting way before it was caught on that casino camera.

  • Chicagowise

    I believe you're right.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I remember him knocking her tf out. I thought the NFL would give him a pass and was surprised that he actually got canned because of it....It's crazy how one choice. One action. Can change the entire course of your life. I'm going to watch this interview. Mainly because I'm curious..

  • Renee26

    Ion wanna watch the interview... I can tell from the write up that the woman still silly odk if he's changed or not but if he reaches out to another hot head to prevent future abuse then that's a good move

  • Renee26

    They didn't let him go til the video was released... The NFL swept it under the rug prior to that

  • Renee26

    That's why she normalizes and accepts it

  • KcoolMuziq

    She's just dickmatized....

  • Dee

    IKR ?

  • KcoolMuziq

    Gayle has some beautiful hair. I wonder why she NEVER changes her hairstyle? I've seen her share Oprah's stylist.

  • Parent

    That woman is too beautiful to settle.

  • Yup, I said it

    Sometimes one incident is all it takes to prove somebody's character. If you coldcock your wife 1 time that's 1 times too many.

  • Renee26

    It's deeper than that... She's brainwashed

  • Chicagowise

    If someone curses you or puts their hands on you, they don't respect you. Where there is disrespect, there can be no love.

    She’s a dummy for staying with this fool. He’s only sorry because he lost his million dollar job. They been together since 15 years old, had a baby, then he married her after he knocked her butt out cold. This definitely wasn’t his first knockout because she was too calm after the incident in interviews. He didn’t have to put in work to get her back because she was right by his side. I guess she learned from her foolish parents who support this abusive relationship. She’s a sad case, I’ll pray for her.

    I am glad you valued yourself enough to not be someone's physical and emotional punching bag.

    I think the biggest reason why women won't leave abusive relationships in America so much of a woman's identity is tied to being married and having a man as if a woman isn't enough on her own and this idea is reinforced by the black church where having a man makes your SPECIAL.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • elroy

    This is ridiculous, he should've never been thrown out of the league. She clearly assaulted him first, I thought men and women were equal.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    I can't be the only here that finds you to be extremely annoying. All you do is name drop or make long winded uncalled for post about who you know. STFU! What was the point of you mention she goes to the same styles as Oprah? Honestly what was the point?

  • Malcom Flex

    Happy Holidays, Garden.
    Sad to say, they're still fighting you can tell. maybe it's just verbal abuse. He's bitter AF he lost his dream job for knocking a sis out and still blames her for 'making him do it', she's bitter AF their fight which was normal to her was caught on camera.

  • Malcom Flex

    Exactly he's on the NFL payroll, that's pretty obvious, as a domestic abuse advocate if they admit it or not.

  • Malcom Flex

    You got that right if she was a white girl he'd still be in jail.

  • Malcom Flex

    He's unofficially on the NFL payroll as a domestic abuse advocate.

  • Malcom Flex

    Stop that bull he did the crime he's paying the time.

  • speakinmymind

    Well damn...tell us how u really feel.???

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I hear no remorse....he just trying to monitize the negative....(see.: Kim Kardashian) how do you experience being knocked clean out and then dragged out of an elevator and not know you were in an "abusive relationship" girl stop....look at the tension moving through your body you can't sit still ...Every time his hand goes up...your flinching
    don't sell this story sis don't do this to the younger queens... staying in for the perks

  • Shamwow

    The pay is probably his salary until his contract is up because if it wasn’t he would be another level of upset. He would probably sue for discrimination if he was forced to sit with nothing. Article would’ve been Ray Rice blackballed from NFL due to winning a wrongful termination suit. Plaintiff cites claims of retaliation. Retaliation that all of us could visibly see. That’s like someone snorting a line and not caring if we’re looking. Straight evidence in plain site.

  • Malcom Flex

    Right. He was too calm. Poor males aren't calm like that, he's got cash in pocket can relax and be the face of NFL's domestic abuse. But what about Ben what's his name, big old white male who raped some white female??

  • Malcom Flex

    I think he's on the NFL payroll as a domestic abuse advocate he was too calm he's not broke if he was broke he'd be more upset he was too calm, like he's on xan's with money in his pocket.

  • Malcom Flex

    Is that the Princess and the Frog? My niece wore that movie out.

  • Shamwow

    Smh. The only way to explain this is to understand that he’s violent because he I s a black man. He was expected to mess up since he has a predisposition to be violent. You know with his long hitting arms. The whites they know definitely made a mistake. They know his light pink heart is pure. They know it’s light pink because it doesn’t pump rage. ?( I hope the sarcasm was evident to whomever is reading this mess.)

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL. I get your point.

  • Shamwow

    The actual video of him hitting her, it seems like she was going towards him. At that moment he seemed like he thought you or me. Smh not good but I’m convinced both of them had damaged lips in the posted video. I bet the gloss was to reflect the imperfections. So they could blame it on the sheen. Smh

  • Soon2BWife

    I will never forget how he handled her after he knocked her out. She could have been dead as a result of hitting her head on the safety rail and he just dragged her limp body out of the elevator and dropped her, her shoe was off, dress coming up, half her legs still in the door. no panic no fear no omg my baby look what I did, he just stood there until the doors opened. And that MF basically kicked her while she was out. She should still be very cautious of him. When he says I hate the person I see on that video, who else is on that video......her!

    I love how Gayle was basically I don’t believe if was the first time or last.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I’m not going anywhere so move on or U STFU!!!

  • Nonya Bizness

    Fk the courts. Fk the NFL. Did you see the video? I saw it and remember it like I watched it yesterday. He is responsible for his actions, and she's responsible for her stupidity in marrying him so she either wouldn't have to testify, or so it would look better for him to get his job back. What if he would have k illed her in that elevator? You'd still blame TMZ? SMH.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Battered Woman Syndrome. Plus her mom over there cosigning(for the $$$$) telling her to stay with him. If you can't go to your mom in such a serious situation, who do you go to? I wonder if she has friends? I'm sure he doesn't hesitate to tell her she's responsible for the predicament they're in now(no NFL), as if she made him do what he did.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I don't think she'll recognize it as abuse if it's generational. If she doesn't see being punched in the face, left in an elevator, then drug like a rag doll down the hall, why would she think it's anything other than normal, ESP if her daughter gets with an athlete? I'd like to know what she witnessed growing up.

  • MsChocolate

    I saw the video...the man is a savage. He hit her like she was a man and then tried to drag her off the elevator. All I could think was what if this was my daughter, sister, mom? My temper is short and nerves are bad. I would light his azz up like a Christmas tree. Courtesy of Mr Smith and Mr Wesson.

  • sunni_daze

    I wonder if these athletes are taking steroids and it's causing them to rage out in anger

  • sherri2016

    Anyone hear about the Nfl player proposing to the white girl who had all those racist tweets. I would never date a man whose not black because of things lime that but my sister only dates white men

    this is true. we need to drive it home with our young girls that they are "enough" 'as is' and that they are worthy of respect (which begins with self respect). no boy or man defines you as a person. yes, we are human and desire companionship, but never sacrifice your safety and well being for just any- ol' body who sets his sites on you. find out what they want and what they're offering. always want better for yourself and don't let anyone impede your progress. and learn that you can't 'fix' these boys and men who are broke and/or broken. it's not your job. if they truly want to change, they will get themselves together BEFORE they approach you about y'all being a couple together. remember, you're only as strong as your weakest link; drop the dead weight, Lol!

    sad part, i knew my deddy was cray and i didn't want him to go to jail, so it actually made me reluctant to tell him what was going on, smh
    when you're in that situation, you make a lot of wrong decisions. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f9871d87b84a5f89c924c4ad190a6c73ef9f008a41e04e72db1eff535c7d2024.gif

  • Black4life

    Her jaw still looks swollen. Something is not right about this...he knock her ass out. Once a man hits you that's a betrayal of everything that the relationship was supposedly built on. Sitting next to him like nothing ever happen...every time he moved his hand I'd be jumping.

  • Black4life

    There you go....

  • Black4life

    He's still slappin the mess out of her. Something ain't right...in my Keith Sweat voice.

  • Black4life

    That's what I'm saying...every time he move, I move. He's still beatin that ass.

  • MsChocolate

    Lol ! Hey Sis !

  • EMILY POST

    Anothe black persons career ruined by TMZ. Like I said.
    He lost millions on some dumb ish.

  • Parent

    Well he is a football player so he could have a case of CTE, like Aaron Hernandez, which causes to act erratically, violently...

  • Parent

    CTE

  • Miss Thang

    Blah blah blah you’re a wife beater and she only tolerates it because she’s addicted to the lifestyle you can afford.

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    You better preach!!!! He was thinking about his next move as he was kicking her and when that elevator door opened he did not care if she was dead or alive just if he was in trouble. Luck for her she survived, and it was all caught on tape because if that camera was not recording and she was die no telling what he would have done with the body and made up a story and presented himself as the grieving boyfriend. Also, now all eyes on him so she better not show up anywhere with an unexplained bruise or mark on her. But the sickest part of it all is they have a daughter. SMH Eat the cake ANNA MAE!!!!!

  • sunni_daze

    Is that a roid?

  • Applebootay

    Did you see the movie Concussion with Will SMith? ITs a real thing...these players are going bat shat crazy from all the head trauma

  • sunni_daze

    I didn't watch the movie, but I saw something with a doctor discussing it.

  • Applebootay

    Oh for sure! as far as that video is concerned, that defintely was not the first or the last time...Now to date, hopefully he's learned his lesson...having those pockets hit can change a person

  • L. Thompson

    Or he could just be an abuser

  • L. Thompson

    There are alot of women being abused by men with no money.

  • Applebootay

    And that's why they say KARMA is a BYTCH.

  • Applebootay

    Dickmatized, Brainwashed kept dummy

  • Applebootay

    Not Ray and Rag Doll....like Raggedy Ann and Andy...LOL!

  • hottlanta

    I got mad bcas the mom was on television buying into that bs as well. I dont honor a man that doesnt honor my daughter.

  • Applebootay

    I was thinking that because he won his case, which means, or could mean, he's still on payroll?

  • Applebootay

    Hey Dr. Chicago!

  • EMILY POST

    I didn’t say I was okay with him hitting her or them fighting in the elevator. Didn’t say that once

  • Melanated Goddess??

    You STFU! I told no lies! All you do is blow hot air and name drop all the " celebrities "you claim to know! Newsflash! No one gives a damn!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    To your point that TMZ ruined him: he ruined himself by beating that girl like he did. Had he not done that TMZ and the media wouldn’t have had any ammo.

  • lovelygamour

    they say the team tried to keep him but he/his team went their own way. I guess he married her to help his chance at a comeback but he shouldve let her go. she got drunk at his work function. this type of fight happens more then you think. so, he just made a bunch of wrong choices. I dont believe he hits her all the time. I think he hit her to get her to stop and kmz just pushed the police/nfl to respond. his choices afterwards is why he isnt on a team now.

  • lovelygamour

    apparently its the usa president, press, and just a few owners that is holding him up. remember one owner said he wanted to hold a tryout but he got overruled. someone is going to have to pay colin. the nfl allowed the press to force them in a corner. now the dallas owner looks awful.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That girl was LAID tf out, on the ground. Thighs out and all. Ain’t no way my mama would support that. That’s so embarrassing.

  • lovelygamour

    this really was a private fight. it wasnt a normal fight. she got drunk at his work function. he had to remove her from the dining area. so i see why she stayed with him. that may have been the first time. I know now he probably hates her.

    the nfl actually tried to keep him but his team/him tried to handle it and they did a bad job. tmz basically made them fire him.

  • lovelygamour

    i discussed this with someone a few days ago. i keep missing him/her. i need to ask a few questions. i need some certification on this person. at first I believed them but the claims have gotten too wild. lol. plus they dont seem to answer naysayers.

  • lovelygamour

    even when i was a kid i did not like oprahs interviews or barbara walters.

  • Renee26

    Sad

  • lovelygamour

    one incident thats in a grey area. that was his work function and she was apparently really drunk. she was causing a scene and didnt want to leave the gala. so if he walked away would she have went back to the function and continued to interrupt it. he shouldnt have hit her but I believe her it couldve been the first time. it was simply their worse day and it got broadcasted to the world and cost him his dream job. I know they feel awful.

  • lovelygamour

    I get the feeling he doesnt talk to her anymore. like ships in the night.

  • Chicagowise

    Hey, there! ?

  • Erin

    Girl am I lying they look like they was fighting when Gayle pulled up ?????

  • EMILY POST

    He paid for it alright. That was probably the most expensive fight he has ever had.

  • Rhondalousey

    What? Idgaf what the situation was, he knocked her out and ahe says they had work to do and you're defending it? All of you all are SAD and LOST!!!!!

  • Malcom Flex

    That's right. He could have killed her outright both are lucky she didn't die.

  • Malcom Flex

    I don't believe you and you're a domestic violence apologist don't you realize you're chatting with intelligent logical people we aren't dumb hood boogers who blindly agree with everything a black male does wrong or right so try again. IF what you say is true which I doubt he'd know not to poundcake her azz, IF she was DRUNK, as you're trying to slander the sis with that outrageous lie. He is lucky he didn't kill her with that punch.

  • Malcom Flex

    That troll is a dollar and a year late with that comment. Disgusting lie and even IF the sis was drunk he'd know she wasn't in her right mind and would not have poundcaked her. I hate to read BS like that dogging BW.

  • Malcom Flex

    Excuses, excuses.

  • Malcom Flex

    Sorry to hear that I have a niece was with a male who laid hands on her plus dissing the family, and she ended up defending the dude, after I heard him dissing our family, she turned around wanting to fight ME defending her trash man. She finally left him but it took too long and I don't have nothing to do with her anymore due to that mess.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yeh I heard about that and black males date out more than anybody next to asian females, did you know this? BW the most loyal/date out the least. I got nothing against 'swirling' except when they diss their race to do so, which is most swirling black males

  • Malcom Flex

    Yeh you can tell that wasn't the first time he poundcaked her to sleep he was too calm used to it, he hates her for some reason and wanted to kill her but failed. Yeh Gayle was on dat azz with common sense she knows a liar when she sees one.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Yes they are. Unfortunately she’s been with him since she was 16. This is the only life she knows, but to have your parents approve of you remaining in this relationship is sad

  • Coffy

    Isn’t that like asking the wolf to watch the hen house?
    Boy bye.

  • Marie

    I hate that she didn’t watch the video! That’s not looking at the issue in it’s entirety. Feel the humiliation, the embarrassment and deal with it. Btw- never heard of domestic violence to this extent as the first time. Hopefully it is the last, but it is not th first.
