Janay Rice is finally speaking out about the brutal attack that left her unconscious in a casino elevator. In a first person story for ESPN, Janay opened up about being knocked unconscious by her then fiancé, NFL player, Ray Rice.
In September, surveillance video surfaced showing the former Baltimore Ravens player hitting Janay while at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey seven months prior. In the shocking clip, you see Ray and Janay arguing before going into an elevator where the football player hit his soon-to-be wife twice before she fell to the ground unconscious.
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
She continued, “The next thing I do recall is being in the casino lobby, surrounded by cops. I said to one officer, ‘That’s not us. What do you mean?’ There were no marks on my face or body, and I felt perfectly fine. I was in complete shock.”
Janay, who later forgave and married Rice, added about publicly apologizing for HER actions: “I’m not saying that what Ray did wasn’t wrong. He and I both know it was wrong. It’s been made clear to him that it was wrong. But at the same time, who am I to put my hands on somebody? I had already apologized to Ray, and I felt that I should take responsibility for what I did. Even though this followed the Ravens’ suggested script, I owned my words.”
After the surveillance video was released, Ray was dropped from the Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL. However, on Friday November 28, 2014, Rice won his appeal of an indefinite suspension, allowing him to become eligible to sign with any NFL team.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First
If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.
Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.
And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.
What I also loved were the new editions. Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman – and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.
Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.
Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne). But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
