Jelani Scott of Sports Illustrated supplied the transcript: "I regret that it has come to this but I can't remain silent anymore. I've let someone to demolish my house,

mistreat me in every way conceivable and traumatise our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won't let anybody who could do something so horrific to have no remorse and portray a picture of something I'm not.

I won't allow the people around him to continue to quiet me and continue to lie to protect this person. It's unethical, it's immoral, it's simply SICK.

It crushes my heart because I've always had hope, and so much love and as scary as this is for me to do it's time I speak up for myself.

I won't keep quiet to protect others because I love myself and my kids more than anyone's 'image.'

"Fractured nose, wrist, damaged eardrum, torn neck muscles from being suffocated, and concussion. I don't want compassion; I just want this person to seek therapy because my kids deserve better.

Just that. Everything hurts, this scenario aches, and I'm afraid and crying for my kids who saw everything. Stop spreading horrible rumours about my family."
