Mychelle Johnson, the wife of Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges, decided to break her silence this week and published terrifying photos and of herself.
Johnson said she fractured her nose, wrist, eardrum, neck muscles, had a “severe concussion,” and was choked until she “went to sleep.”
The post included photos of Johnson’s face, hands, neck, back, arms, legs, and a medical report saying she was a “victim of male partner abuse.” Johnson posted a video of his son asking an unnamed woman “did Daddy choke Mommy?”
“I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore,” Johnson wrote in the post. “I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not. I won’t 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. It hurts 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 stand up for myself. I won’t be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones ‘image’.… a fracture nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until I went to sleep and a severe concussion. I don’t need sympathy, I just don’t want this happening 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, most importantly I’m scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything. Please respect my families privacy and stop with the disgusting rumors and allegations.”
Bridges, 24, was arrested in Los Angeles Wednesday night and released on a $130,000 bond.
TMZ reported that Bridges was arrested for domestic violence on Wednesday. LASD’s website says he’s due in court July 20.
The Hornets released a statement Thursday in response to Bridges’ arrest.
“The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges. We are in the process of gathering additional information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
The NBA is “gathering more information” on Bridges’ arrest, according to League spokesperson Mike Bass.
