Janay Palmer – Ray Rice’s Wife




Baltimore Ravens Ray Rice’s home in Maryland was burglarized over the weekend, and $2,000 and two guns were stolen, according to reports. Rice wasn’t at home at the time but a friend was staying at his home and reported the incident to police. Baltimore County police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathleen Batton said there is a surveillance video that shows the burglar entering through a rear window.

Rice released a statement to USA Today saying:

“My family and I are fine, which is the most important thing. This is an unfortunate incident that I am dealing with through the proper channels.”

Ray Rice is dating 25-year-old Janay Palmer since 2008, they are living together and are reportedly engaged.

The couple met when Janay was sixteen years old. She is from Mount Vernon while her famous boyfriend is from the NY rival town of New Rochelle. They became friends and kept in touch with one another while he was at Rutgers and she was at Westchester Community College. Palmer and Rice finally went on a first date at The Cheesecake Factory when Rice came back home from school.

“I was so nervous,” Palmer said. “I didn’t even eat dinner. I just ate a slice of cheesecake.”

Rice joined the Baltimore Ravens shortly after the two started dating. Janay decided to follow her high school sweetheart and continued to study nearby, at Towson University. She graduated with a major  in Communication Studies. Reportedly Ray gave Janay as graduation gifts a car and an engagement ring!

“I almost passed out when he told me the car was mine,” said Palmer. “I’m just happy I decided to be nice that day instead of letting him get his own wallet.”

    this was the lamest apology i ever heard. he never said he was sorry to his wife!!!! he never showed remorse for hitting her. he looked at hits notes and said “I just want to hit everything”. He also said its not about ” falling down its about getting up” he sounded like a conplete mornon who was desperate to clean up his image and that is all he cares about What a moron. God help her.

  3. Patrick Armstrong says

    Janay, You deserve so much BETTER. Seriously, Girl ! Get out while you can and forget about that loser. You are pretty and smart and DESERVE someone who sees and appreciates you for who you are. You don’t have to SETTLE for this guy who is more concerned with himself and his own image than he is about you or to even worry about you, You are NOT the problem, HE IS !!!!! Send him and his crap packing and get into a good relationship with someone who LOVES and APPRECIATES YOU !!!! You are worth far more than this poor excuse for a man-child. He needs therapy and you need more and better, you are worth it. HE is NOT !!!
    Ask around Girl, IT NEVER GETS BETTER ONLY WORSE , What happens NEXT time ? and the time after that ? and again after that ??? How many times will he do this and you apologize ??? Will you survive ??? Please ? Get out while you can !!! He does NOT deserve you !!!

    She looks bi~racial, and we all know white women try to work things out for their kids( which is ok) I could be wrong, but at the end of the day she loves this type of thing, so America stay out of their business, let his dumb ass kill her, because that’s what could have happened, but she is ok with it, so we should be to, cause had that been Me, My Dad would have knocked his ass out.

    he spits on her twice knocks her out drags her out of an elavater with her ass and underware hanging out and she defends him with ravens people and nfl people then marries him and defends him on twitter and internet and people feel sorry for her womans groups speakup for her she is garbage

  6. Al Bundy says

    Please try and look at that video again, she hits the elevator railing, which sticks way out, with the back of her head and THAT knocks her out. No surprise the media races with the most salacious story, slandering her husband.
    If he had really hit her, she would have been rushed to the hospital, looking as if a car hit her.
    Thankfully she appears just fine, just having to live with the lies on the internet, and shockingly in the media .
    Now her and Ray have loads of time to watch their beautiful daughter grow up!

    Once again, Ray Rice did not punch out his fiance, she hit her head on the dangerous railing while falling.

    First of all, I am going to play devil’s advocate because all too often what seems to be long term DV case may not be when it comes to Ray Rice but I am not convinced. I am a victim of DV having watched my father draw blood when he hit my mother. She stayed for many years before finally opting out of the marriage. It left a lasting impression that you don’t put your hands on a woman..period…having said all of that, both of the Rice’s were arrested, they went to court…along with their legal representatives came to a agreement with the court…which meant Ray Rice had to do counseling for a year…The NFL, however, gave him a slap on the wrist and should have suspended him for 6 games instead of the 2 he got…again having said all of that, who among those who criticize know what the court heard from both parties and was there a history of DV involving the Rices. If the answer was NO and if this was his first time hitting her then this was definitely overkill and a knee jerk reaction on the part of the media and from women’s DV groups. They came out of the woodwork to promote their services and offered unfounded conspiracy theories and that was what had me concerned. The judge and jury already tried and sentenced them according to the evidence that was heard yet in the arena of public opinion the punishment did not fit the crime…NEWSFLASH!…it was none of anybody’s business to second guess the legal process…instead what we got especially when the second video surfaced was the piling on of the Rice’s..Nike taking away their endorsements and the owner of the Ravens suspending him indefinitely..Janay Rice does not appear to be afraid of Rice at all even though she flinched in the elevator video…Just because she flinched is not indicative that there was a long term DV problem in their relationship…..There are those who keep quipping about “why did she stay so long”….well there are educated and supported evidence as to why but we still don’t know if Ray Rice has hit her before this incident…..if the court heard all testimony and if they did their job, the Rices should have been allowed to go forward under the watchful eye of the court but as we have seen this was not enough hence we have this public outcry.. ..btw…She did marry him in spite of what happened but there are still those who say..she married him out of FEAR..not buying that…nope.
