Ray Rice and his wife Janay Rice were drunk the night he knocked her out in a hotel elevator, it has been reported.
As you all know, Rice was fired from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after video of the February incident surfaced on Monday. Janay furiously defended her husband following the outrage that greeted the video … and Rice released a statement confirming that he and his wife are as tight as ever.
According to TMZ, Rice told friends that he and Janay had been drinking heavily before the fight happened, and ever since then, he has stopped downing strong liquors.
In addition, the incident prompted the two to seek the face of the Lord … and now they are baptized, born-again Christians who are actively engaged in mentoring with other married couples.
In other words, this explains how they managed to get married despite finding themselves in a situation that has proven for generations to be a deal breaker in relationships.
