    Ray Rice and Janay Palmer can be heard shouting obscenities at each other, and she appears to spit in the face of the three-time Pro Bowl running back right before he throws a brutal punch in a video shown to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official. 

Ray Rice's wife says taking away football from her husband is horrific and making the couple relive a moment they regret is a "horrible thing."

Janay Palmer posted a statement Tuesday on her Instagram account, a day after TMZ Sports released video showing the couple Feb. 15 in an Atlantic City casino elevator. Each hits the other before Rice knocks Palmer off her feet and into a railing, knocking her out.

The Ravens released Rice hours after the video was released Monday, and the NFL followed by suspending him indefinitely.

Palmer wrote she awoke feeling as if she had a nightmare and accepting reality is "a nightmare in itself." She also wrote that this is their life and they will continue to show "what real love is!"
