Yesterday we covered the various reports on the accusation from Supriya Harris against Saint Louis Rams star running back Steven Jackson.
Miss Harris claims that Jackson abused her while she was nine months pregnant. Miss Harris says this is a pattern of abuse and believes it is important that she speaks out now.
She filed a police complaint ten months after the alleged incident yesterday in Las Vegas.
TMZ.com posted a picture of the alleged wound that Jackson caused to Miss Harris during the attack.
Jackson released a statement denying the claims and it should be noted he has not been charged or arrested.
We received an email from Miss Harris yesterday with a brief statement on why she is coming out now with these accusations against Jackson.
Here is what she had to say:
“‘Domestic violence is never acceptable and I stood up, against all odds and spoke up. I would not wish this on my worst enemy, so you can say ‘I’m a woman scorned’ but I left Steven because if his abusive nature and the truth cannot be denied.”
I asked a follow up question on if she wanted to address the people who say this is just about money and her quote was this:
“It’s a shame that people automatically think there is money involved, I simply gave my statement to police. There is no monetary gain in that action. I have a son with Steven and I hope that Steven addresses this issue and gets the necessary help so that our son doesn’t adopt this behavioral problem. Violence against women is never ok and to have it happen, at that time, right before I was due to give birth was very disturbing for me.
I spoke up because, sadly I’m sure there is someone else going through that, as we speak.”
We are currently reaching out to Steven Jackson to see if he has any comment.
