I’m November the former NFL Rams running back is seen beating the mother of his infant son mercilessly. The footage shows him swinging on her multiple times and throwing her into a TV before it landed on her.
Although he says he wasn’t on the run, he was picked up at an airport on his way out.
“It’s unfortunate because I just got out of rehab for anxiety and depression like eight months ago,” Stacy told cops. “I dropped everything to come down here and support the mother of my child in her last trimester, and the baby. I let her know I wasn’t trying to be with her or nothing like that. This is a case of just bitterness. That’s why she did this. The whole assault thing. She staged it. She set me up.”
Stacy Takes No Accountability For The Abuse
Stacy accused his child’s mother; Evans of having an affair with his lawyer; who is a former college teammate of his; as well which he said he found out about a week before his arrest. The football player said that the timeline was that he left his job in Nashville earlier this year; went to rehab in March; and moved to Florida in April; to support Evans through the end of her pregnancy.
“Unfortunately I came down here and played house with her,” Stacy said. “She thought something else was going to be on and she tried to make it about everything else except for me supporting her and the baby. I filed a petition on her to just get my rights on paper, and she’s just been — I don’t know if it’s postpartum — she’s just been unstable ever since.”
Nevertheless, Zac Stacy was arrested on Nov. 18, 2021; and he continues to allege that his ex-girlfriend “staged” the incident.
“I wasn’t allowed to see my child because when I’d come over to the house I’m disrespectful if I don’t acknowledge her; whatever that means,” he said. “The whole thing was staged. All she’s trying to do is get money out of it. She got a reaction out of me. She knew I was down. And that I was going through anxiety and depression. She knew I was trying to close the gap between me and my son. Regardless, she’s just upset because she got caught; and she’s upset I’m not taking care of her like she thought; and now she took it this far.”
The Closest Thing To Remorse Came At The End Of Stacy’s Post
Stacy said it was “f–ked up” that he reacted the way he did; but he didn’t seem to deny the beating; or feel that he would’ve handled it differently if presented with the same situation again.
“This is just a case of a girl who is bitter; I don’t want to be with her. She’s trying to destroy my reputation over this s–t,” Stacy said. “It’s f–ked up that I reacted the way I did. I don’t know how any man could’ve handled that situation.”
