Janay Rice, the wife of cut NFL running back Ray Rice, commented Tuesday on the recently released video footage from February in which her then-fiancée knocked her unconscious in a hotel elevator in Atlantic City.

"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice posted to her Instagram account, CNN reported.

"No one knows the pain that the media and unwanted options [sic] from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing."

"To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific . . . If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow and show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!"

The 27-year-old's contract with the Baltimore Ravens was terminated on Monday after TMZ released the elevator footage, and the NFL suspended him indefinitely.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday morning that a higher-resolution video complete with audio shows the altercation in fuller detail. In the video, shown to AP reporters Monday night by law enforcement, Ray and his wife both hurl obscenities at each other, and Janay Rice appears to spit in his face.

Ray Rice stood to make $4 million this year.

The NFL's policy was changed as a result of the incident. First-time offenders involved in an instance of domestic violence now face a six-game suspension.
