Ray Rice has broken his silence after a video of him brutally knocking out his now-wife Janay Palmer surfaced on Monday, costing him his NFL job in the process.On Tuesday, Rice sent out a statement that read, ‘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.’
His statement came shortly after his wife sent out an angry statement on Instagram blasting the media for ruining their lives by reopening old wounds.
‘If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels,’ she wrote. ‘Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is!’
Rice’s contract with the Baltimore Ravens was terminated and he was indefinitely suspended by the NFL because of the incident, which happened back in February.
