Ray Rice’s wife blames media in Instagram post

Janay Palmer is finally breaking her silence about the video showing Ray Rice beating her in a hotel elevator - and is defending Ray and blaming the media.

In a post from her Instagram page on Tuesday morning, and verified by the Baltimore Sun, Janay Rice writes, “I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. To take something away from the man I love, that he has worked his ass of for all his life, just to gain ratings, is horrific.”
