Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges is under fire right now after he was arrested on felony domestic violence charges. Bridges, who aspires to sign a big deal this summer, was involved in a huge controversy after the news saw the light.
The Hornets released a statement explaining that they're collecting info about this situation, and until things are solved, they won't make more announcements or decide what to do with the dunk specialist.
Meanwhile, Bridges' wife, Mychelle Johnson, shared a series of pictures on Instagram, breaking her silence on this situation and sending a message to people who keep talking about this issue.
I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore. 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.
The last few months haven't been easy for Bridges. Starting from his controversial lyrics as a rapper, his posts on social media somehow challenged the league to fine him, and now this. The forward needs to get things together if he wants to have a long and successful tenure in the association. The situation doesn't look promising right now, but we'll have to wait to see what's next for him.
