Granted we don't know what REALLY went on.... but if what's in the media is even close to the truth how could she possibly go back to him?

I don't get it!!

Maybe if they had kids and she didn't want to break up the family, or maybe if she thought she couldn't make it on her own financially I could understand, but that's not the case.

IMHO they both need serious help.

It's a shame, she really came across as a strong woman.

I'm with you. I can understand why women with kids, no support system and no money feel they are stuck with abusers. I can't understand why a successful single woman with all the money in the world and supportive family and friends would go back to a guy who beat the crap out of her.

How much evidence do you need that a relationship isn't working?

Someone has failed to teach this girl to have a bit of self respect.

Then again, she's what? 19 or 20. And at that age, you think you know everything anyway.

Amen to that, Sam. But she's a classic example of why it's so hard for women to get out of abusive relationships. They are stuck in a horrible cycle--it's very hard to break. I say she's not pg but who knows. Glad the DA had enough to charge him with the making criminal threats count--that's a really serious one and the one that carries the most time.

That is so easy to say unless you've seen a situation like this up close and personal. Abusers beat down the victims to the point where they loose their self esteem. It doesn't mean that someone didn't do their job raising her.

I don't mean that her parents didn't raise her like that. I am meaning the people around her currently- She suffers from the same thing a lot of famous people suffer from- everyone around her is a YES person. No one ever tells her NO.

This is the article I just read about the incident.

I just find it hard to believe that they have been together long enough for her to be completely broken already. But I also don't know her or him or what has been going on.

Totally off topic- is there a way to include both quotes in a reply? This is annoying to quote someone who quoted me and doesn't make much sense when you look at it. lol.

That's basically what a psychologist on the Today show the other day was saying. Some victims of abuse just have a low level of self-esteem, or they have an unhealthy desire to be in a relationship no matter how bad of a relationship it is. It usually takes a strong support system to break the cycle and to convince them that it is not a good idea to remain in the relationship. If (s)he's physically abusive, (s)he's probably verbally abusive as well. Of course, that's according to this lady, I have no idea the psychology behind all of this.

To quote several replies, click on middle quote icon thingy in each thread you want to quote (originally blue, will turn red when clicked), then click on POST REPLY and go about your business. :p

Holy cow, doesn't this young woman have ANYONE who cares about her? Where is her mother? Why isn't anyone putting a stop to this!?!?

I can't even look at that picture of her. How could he do that, and how could she possibly take him back?!
