The ex-girlfriend of NFL linebacker Reuben Foster spoke publicly for the first time Thursday about the incident that led to Foster's arrest in Florida last month — and the Washington Redskins' decision to sign him after he was released by the San Francisco 49ers.
In an interview with ABC News that aired Thursday morning, Elissa Ennis said the Redskins' decision to sign Foster shortly after he was cut by the 49ers felt like a "slap in the face."
"When he got signed, I was like, I can't believe somebody picked him up," Ennis told ABC News. "I was shocked."
Ennis told the television network she has been in an on-and-off relationship with Foster for several years, and Foster invited her to Florida a few weeks ago so "we could work on our relationship." Ennis said the Nov. 24 assault occurred after she told Foster that she was going to tell his new girlfriend that he had paid for Ennis' flight to visit him.
