In her first public appearance and interview since her recent wedding and husband’s arrest, U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo responded to inaccurate news stories about her relationship and recent marriage to former NFL player Jerramy Stevens.
To bring you up to speed…Hope recently married Stevens within 24 hours of him being arrested and released from jail on suspicion of fourth-degree domestic violence against her.
Solo told reporters Tuesday that she hadn’t been hit and the media renders judgments “before all the facts are out there.” Solo says Stevens was not charged with any crime.
“That’s a hard truth, and it’s part of life,” Solo said after the practice. “I’m happy. I’m happily married. I would never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life. It’s unfortunate, but that’s what the media can do.
“I’m happy in my life. I know the people closest to me are the only ones who really know what happened. The facts are out there if people really want to find them out — they can go and find them out in the police report. But I would never stand for domestic violence. I won’t read any of the negative things about me or my husband. Like I said, we’re happy, and ultimately that’s all that really matters.”
