Everything is presumed until a sentence is handed down, but Miles Bridges’ personal or professional future does not look good if he ends up proving in court what his, still, wife has decided to publish on social networks once the Hornets player was arrested and later released after posting bail at a Los Angeles police station.
This is the publication that Mychelle Johnson, the wife and mother of his two children (and with whom he has been in a relationship since 2016), published yesterday on his Instagram account. A sadly revealing testimony.
“I hate it’s come to this but I can’t keep quiet. I have allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every possible way, and traumatize our children for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I’m not going to let someone who could do something so horrible have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not. I will not allow the people around him to continue to silence me and continue to lie to protect this person. It’s unethical, it’s immoral, it’s truly SICK.
My heart aches because I have always had hope, and a lot of love and as much fear as this gives me, it is time to defend myself. I will not be silent to protect others because I value myself and my children more than any ‘image’»
In addition, he has given details of his injuries: “a broken nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being suffocated to sleep and a severe concussion. I don’t need pity, I just don’t want this to happen to anyone else, I just want this person to get help, my kids deserve better. That’s all I want. It hurts, everything hurts, this situation hurts, the most important thing is that I am afraid and it hurts for my children who witnessed everything. Please respect the privacy of my families and stop making nasty rumors and accusations.” was read in the long caption that accompanied the images showing a wounded and bruised body after the alleged attacks by Bridges, and attaching the medical part, as well as a video where one of his children is seen explaining some of the unfortunate scenes that he would have had to witness between his two parents.
The forward He had already left us in the past some sample of his temperament, which is activated like a spring, and which seems to extend beyond the competitive field with dire consequences.
Obviously this, apart from what it means at a civil and criminal level, will have direct effects on all kinds of renewal (which was estimated at around 150-170 million for 5 years) or transfer of the 24-year-old player whose career It has just hatched, placing it near the shuttle to the All-Star, all negotiations being paralyzed and we will see if it is definitively suspended while the procedure is resolved in court.
