“I do deeply regret the role that I played in the incident that night,” she said.

“But I can say that I am happy that we continue to work through it together and we are continuing to strengthen our relationship and our marriage, and do what we have to do for not only ourselves collectively, but us individually and working to be better parents for Rayven, and continue to be good role models for the community like we were doing before this.

“I love Ray and I know he will continue to prove himself to not only you all, but the community. I know he will regain your respect back in due time.”
