Ex-wife of Cubs' Russell details abuse claim

MLB "takes allegations of Domestic Violence seriously", the league said in a statement Friday.

Abuse allegations first surfaced in June 2017, when a person who had been identified as a close friend of Reidy-Russell accused Russell, via social media, of "mentally and physically abusing her".

So, for all you who can't wait to come to the defense of Addison Russell, because according to you, of course his ex-wife is lying, just wants attention and wants to ruin his career, I mean this in the most polite and respectful way possible, fuck you.

That was the some response that Russell had to the initial accusations in June 2017, after which he vehemently denied allegations of physical abuse. The league said Reidy had declined to cooperate with investigators past year, but new efforts would be made. "After he would calm down from his angry spells, I'd always get the most honest apologies, making me believe how sorry he was & he's working on bettering himself".

"We take allegations of domestic violence seriously and support the League's decision to place Addison Russell on administrative leave given new details revealed today. I was deeply hurt that he could even be capable of this behavior towards me, I couldn't understand how the man I was so in love with, the FATHER of my child, the man I married just a few months ago could show such aggression towards me".

Last year, Addison Russell and his then-wife Melisa split in a relatively public way, with Melisa discussing infidelity on Instagram.

Theresa May to say she won't change tack on Brexit
We all agreed on this today'. 'Those who explain that everything is going to be alright are liars, ' he said. France's president Emmanuel Macron said the EU's backstop should be "precisely preserved" in any agreement.

This will certainly reopen the Major League Baseball investigation with Russell and I doubt that he will be in the lineup this weekend for the Cubs.

- "I saw a darkness in him I've never seen or experienced in him or anyone else". But that tactic didn't work, she said, and the name-calling, intimidation by force and threats continued. Basically, I felt like I was nothing, a nobody & I was nothing without him, & I couldn't do anything without him.

"The way I was treated and the way he made me feel about myself, tore me down to nothing". I'm giving myself a voice. I was taking back my life.

That was a far cry from when Reidy-Russell first met Russell at 20, when "everything was flawless", she wrote.

The couple's divorce was finalized August 30. In an ensuing comment, one of her friends accused Russell of physical abuse as well. The two share a 3-year-old son together.
