In January, Kyle was arrested and charged with aggravated assault after he punched Marrika, choked her with a scarf, then forced her engagement ring down her throat causing her to choke even more.
The police report states Marrika had welts under both of her eyes, a golf ball-sized knot on her forehead, a cut on her nose, and a blood clot in her right eye that had burst.
Marrika Marie underwent several surgeries to repair the injuries she sustained and now she’s happy to be Mrs. Kyle Norman.
Kyle and Marrika celebrated their impromptu nuptials with family and friends at the Suite Lounge in Atlanta.
The new bride revealed she’s still in a lot of pain, on several medications, and she only gets about three hours of sleep a night, but she’s not listening to the naysayers and haters who encourage her to leave Kyle.
Crediting my deep prayers and talks with God, my deep love for Kyle and conviction that Kyle really does love me and has vowed not to place his hands on me ever again. I am not listening to the naysayers who keep trying to say he doesn’t love me and encourage me to leave. I will admit, I am in a lot of pain every day, physically. I am on several different pain medications which keep me up. I am not able to get more than three hours of sleep. I’m attending counseling three times per week and I know in my heart that God will help me get through this. I’m blessed to be alive and still have the love and support of my familyl I am finding it easier each day to shun the haters that leave me text messages and voicemails.
Kyle Norman, who is now five months sober, chimed in offering an apology and said he’s changed his entire way of thinking and living.
Fellas, we as men have a problem with our apologies. If you make a mistake, own up to it and man up! That’s what I had to do to get my queen back. I apologize to my brothers of Jagged Edge, to my family, my wife and my fans and anyone I let down. I let myself down and my family, and for that I apologize. And I got myself some help. I don’t drink or do drugs anymore and I have changed my entire way of living and thinking. It’s never too late to change. I am just happy she has given me this opportunity to spend the rest of my life with her showing her how much I really do love her. I’m giving her all the hot sauce she wants.
Clearly, there’s a new kind of ride or die chick in town.
I, my friends, am not about that life.
God bless them.
