In regard to the elevator altercation that occurred between Ray and Janay Rice back in February, there’s still more surveillance footage that we’ve all yet to see.
In the latest video to hit the web, a frantic Janay can be seen kissing Ray soon after he knocked her unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator. Obtained by ABC News, the 45 minute footage:
shows a clearly distraught Janay Palmer, Rice’s then-fiancee and now wife, unwilling to talk to him after the NFL star had punched her inside an elevator on Feb. 15 at the now-closed Revel casino.
Palmer is seen physically pushing Rice away from her when he approached her immediately after the incident. Palmer was then protected by hotel security guards as Rice attempted to move closer.
But Janay doesn’t keep her guard up for long. The site continues:
The video then shows Palmer going through something of an emotional evolution in the middle of the night. Almost immediately after the assault, she appears angry. Soon after, Palmer begins to cry. And by the time she and Rice are both escorted into an elevator — handcuffed — she appears to kiss and nuzzle the one-time NFL star.
As we all know, Janay has since spoken out about the disturbing incident, standing by her now-husband even until this day. ABC News goes on to say that Rice went to court to try and stop the site from getting the video, but obviously he lost that battle.
The site also notes:
Rice’s attorney, Peter Ginsberg, was disappointed that the new video was made public.
“This is a time of healing and he, quite naturally, doesn’t want another media showing of what must have been the worst event of his life,” Ginsberg said in an interview today. “What the media ought to be focusing on is the issue of domestic violence.”
During a two-hour hearing in Trenton, N.J., on Wednesday, Ginsberg said that Rice “literally does not talk to me about the events [at the casino] without crying — to this day.”
