Latest On Reuben Foster

Reuben Foster‘s ex-girlfriend admitted that she falsely recanted her allegations of abuse earlier this year in an effort to protect the linebacker. In an interview with ABC, Elissa Ennis explained that she helped get the charges dropped against Foster in order to keep him out of prison and continue their relationship. 

Love will have you doing things that’s not in your best interests,” she said (via “I did what I had to do for the person I love. I thought that he would change.”

Ennis also claims the 49ers tried to intervene during Foster’s arrest last month. When police arrived to the team hotel, she alleges that people from the 49ers told cops she was the same woman who previously recanted allegations against Foster. It’s not immediately clear whether Ennis is alleging interference from players or other team staffers.

During the interview, Foster’s ex-girlfriend described a pattern of abuse between her and Foster. On at least three different occasions, she says, she was punched and kicked by the former first round pick.

The 49ers released Foster soon after the November arrest and the Redskins claimed him off waivers. Foster was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list (paid suspension) while the legal process plays out, so he is unlikely to suit up for Washington this year.

    If you don’t lie, your credibility is shot.

    Admitting why you lied on national tv while we all know you mean to sue BUT need to tell the world about your previous ‘recanted story’

    It’s hard to believe liars. Start telling the truth and damage control won’t be necessary

      This is why by 2020, people will be exhausted by the Trump lies and Joe Biden will be there to keep us all calm cool and collected. Liar N Chief sets all the wrong examples for people to follow. Lie Lie Lie until they prove you wrong!

    This woman has zero credibility. Many people sad that this woman said if he dumps me I’m taking him down with me. Not to mention this woman was arrested for falsifying a police report about domestic violence regarding a previous boyfriend.

    Both parties are in the wrong. He needs a 4 game suspension and anger management. She needs jesus.

    He gets 6 games minimum, and anger management. Plus my guess is he gets released by Washington rather than count against the cap. All his guaranteed money is gone due to the suspension this season.

    Plus even if her credibility is shot she still claims he abused her, and that can’t be taken lightly.

    If you watched the interview, she said (at the time of the new incident) he had began seeing other people…. but that she went there to see him to “work on their relationship”, and triggered him by saying “im gonna tell your girlfriend you flew me out here”…. if she knew he was seeing other people, there is no “working on the relationship”…. you have no relationship. Also a big fan of the timeline of these events: original accusation of battery….. ok, I was making that up to extract money from him….. new accusations……. I was lying about lying about the original accusations….

    This is hilarious. Nobody condones abuse. Nor should they condone false accusations which ruin people’s lives. Unfortunately, with multiple recanted stories…. we won’t ever know the truth now.

    Why didn’t she leave him IF he keeps acting this way? Why do women do this?

    This has out of court undisclosed settlement written all over it. No way a criminal jury is going to convict based on her testimony/credibility, but civil court has a lesser threshold for damages so Foster will pay to make it go away. She’ll get paid and sign an NDA, Foster will get suspended by the league and may not play again. And to be clear, not condoning abuse, not condoning making false accusations.

    • Unless Reuben Foster is convicted in criminal court, the NFL has no business in this he-said, she-said drama. Elissa Ennis needs to take responsibility for her own decisions. If Foster has been rough with her, then she should just stay away from him. It’s not like he’s flying out to her home town and harassing her and her current partner.

      Apparently Ennis has a history of these kinds of accusations with multiple men, so perhaps none of it is true.

    There is such a national uproar over Mr. Foster’s activities that there is talk of renaming the Reuben Sandwich.

    He gets what he deserves if its time fine for being a Dam fool still messing with her

    • Polish Hammer

      Exactly, either he did it or didn’t do it, but if she originally lied and this idiot still associates with her says it all. For a guy with a checkered past and everything to lose, he should’ve cut ties with her as soon as the original allegations were made.
