On Thursday, Reuben Foster's ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis stated that she lied to police about the incident.
"I was threatening Reuben, that I was going to f*** up his career," Ennis said.
Ennis also added that she called the police three times because "I wanted to be extra, I wanted him to go down. I was pissed." When Ennis was asked by the prosecution if Foster laid a hand on her she said"No, no sir. Not once."Ennis even admitted it to being a money scheme.
"It was all a money scheme. I didn't want to get this far in the news. It was about money."
San Francisco took Foster with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but there were plenty of red flags surrounding him. He failed a drug test at the NFL Combine following a diluted sample and was kicked out of the combine following an altercation with a hospital employee.
As a rookie last season, Foster racked up 72 tackles in just 11 games, ranking second on the team in tackles.
