Former WNBA player Kysre Gondrezick has broken her silence following reports of an alleged altercation with her boyfriend, Houston Rockets player Kevin Porter Jr., at a hotel in New York City earlier this week. Gondrezick’s representatives issued an exclusive statement to Baller Alert, shedding light on the incident and requesting privacy and respect during this challenging time.
“Ms. Gondrezick wants to express her deep appreciation for the public’s support and prayers. In regards to our client, much that has been written in the press attributing statements to her are misleading and inaccurate,” says Robert Hantman of Robert Hantman and Associates. “She has not granted nor released any statements on her own volition. She asks everyone to respect her privacy and avoid speculation as to what occurred and refrain from disclosing any misleading statements as to Mr. Porter.”
“She asks that the Press and all officials refrain from any judgement and speculation on this matter which will be rectified properly and with integrity. Thank you!”
Porter Jr. was arrested Monday morning and charged with assault and strangulation after cops received a 911 call about the alleged attack. He’s since been released on $75,000 bail.
Multiple news outlets reported Monday that Gondrezick had informed law enforcement that Porter had struck her repeatedly with a closed fist and forcibly choked her during the altercation. However, Gondrezick has contradicted these reports, asserting that she has not provided any verbal or written statement for prosecutorial purposes.
Additionally, some reports had suggested that Gondrezick sustained a fractured vertebra in her neck as a result of the alleged assault. In response, representatives for the former WNBA player clarified that Gondrezick had not given her consent for the release of her medical records. Instead, they claimed that information regarding her injuries may have been relayed by an officer who overheard discussions among medical personnel, rather than through direct statements from the doctors treating her.
Furthermore, Gondrezick’s representatives strongly refuted claims that her relationship with Porter was tumultuous and abusive. They insisted that such narratives were untrue.
“In no way does that represent what their relationship has been.”
