According to ESPN’s Outside the Line, the altercation that lead to Ray Rice losing his mega million dollar deal with the Baltimore Ravens all started because of another woman.
The evening began innocently enough. Rice, 27, and 26-year-old Janay celebrated Valentine’s Day at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City with two other couples, close friends who were a regular part of their social circle. They had dinner and wine, then went to the casino’s main bar, The Social, where they split at least one bottle of Patron Tequila, Rice’s favorite liquor. By 2 a.m., Ray and Janay were intoxicated and heatedly arguing as he followed her into a hotel elevator. According to two sources, the couple fought about the guest list for their upcoming wedding as well as text messages Rice had received that night from a young woman, a Ravens employee.
I completely understand Janay being upset. But I’m also sure that wasn’t the first time Janay suspected Rice of cheating. What’s the point of starting a big argument if you’re not going to leave the man? Heck she didn’t even leave him for beating her butt. But I guess she’d rather get her butt beat than to be cheated on.
Sometimes a woman has to realize her options aren’t that good and just move on.
