Reports reveal that Mychelle Johnson required medical attention for her multiple injuries.

Johnson took it to Instagram after the incident to explain the trauma she’s been going through while in a relationship with Bridges. Johnson says:

“I hate that it has come to this but I can’t be silent anymore. I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not. I won’t allow the people around him to continue to silence me and continue to lie to protect this person. It’s unethical, it’s immoral, it’s truly SICK.”

Johnson continues:

“It hurts my heart because I’ve always had hope, and so much love and as scary as this is for me to do it’s time I stand up for myself. I won’t be silent to protect others anymore because I value myself and my kids more than anyones ‘image’… a fracture nose, wrist, torn eardrum, torn muscles in my neck from being choked until i went to sleep and a severe concussion. I don’t need sympathy, I just don’t want this happening to anyone else, I just want this person to get help, my kids deserve better.”

Johnson adds:

“That’s all i want. It hurts, everything hurts, this situation hurts, most importantly I’m scared and hurting for my kids who were witness to everything. Please respect my families privacy and stop with the disqusting rumors and allegations.”

The couple’s son said:

“Daddy choked mommy.”

The third party asked their son what he decided to do during the incident. Their son said:

“I smacked him and told him to be nice.”

Their son also admitted during the call that Bridges threw Johnson’s phone and shoes out of the window.
