Miles Bridges has a lot of nerve.
Mychelle Johnson, wife of NBA player Miles Bridges, shared photos of injuries she says she sustained at the hands of “a male partner” Thursday. Bridges turned himself in on a felony domestic violence charge just the day before.
“I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore,” Johnson, 24, wrote on Instagram, captioning a gallery of photos that showed her with bruises on her face, hands, arms, back and legs. “I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life.”
“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,” she added. “I won’t be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones ‘image.’ “
Johnson said she suffered “a fracture nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until i went to sleep and a severe concussion.”
Bridges is already being called on to get kicked out of the leage, but he is also being called out for sending out a hyprocritical tweet back in 2020 over the mistreatemnt of Black women.
He responded on Twitter to a video of a Black women being thrown in the dumpster.
“I ain’t gone lie this ain’t it bro. We as Black Men have to treat our Black Queens (and Women in general) better!! Y’all can call me a simp or whatever but y’all know the difference between right and wrong!!”
This is just another instance that shows that nothing people put online likely mirrors anything they actually do or practice in real life.
According to records from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department website, Bridges was released on $130,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on July 20th.
The mother of two also refuted the people who criticized her claims.
“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,” Johnson wrote. “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, everything hurts, this situation hurts, most importantly I’m scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything,” she continued. “Please respect my families privacy and stop with the disgusting rumors and allegations.”
He and Johnson started dating in 2016, and share two children.
