Christy Mack is still healing after she was brutally attacked, allegedly by ex-boyfriend, War Machine. To update her fans on her progress, she has shared the first photo since her attack.
War Machine, 32, may have plead not guilty to the attempted murder of ex-girlfriend Christy Mack, 23, but he is still safely behind bars as he awaits trial for the 32 charges leveled against him. Christy may be feeling a little more safe these days, considering that she has shared the first photo of herself since the beating which was so severe she believed she might die.
Christy Mack Photo: Star Shares First Pic Of Herself After Brutal Attack
The photo she shared on Instagram (above) doesn’t show her face, but it’s still enough to let her fans know that she’s up and out of bed and slowly, slowly getting better with the help of some ferret friends.
She also posted an Instagram of her dogs with the caption: “Got a couple of root canals in fractured teeth today, but I got to see my babies Pitrick Swayzee and Cleopitra for a bit. I can’t wait until I can be with them every day again. It’s hard to find rental properties that allow bully babies, but I’ll find one soon!”
Christy is referring to the fact that her home is no longer a safe place to be in after the attack made her address public. As she tweeted to a fan, “unfortunately, I will never be able to return to my home,” and “every person on the internet now has access to my address. It is no longer safe.”
It’s so sad that Christy has to worry about finding a new home as she puts herself back together — literally and emotionally — but we’re glad that she seems to be on the mend.
War Machine Could Face Life In Prison
Christy was photographed by a fan (or detractor) in Las Vegas in late August, and fans of War Machine (yup, such a thing exists) accused her of partying and that War Machine didn’t (allegedly) beat her that badly, after all. (Just kind of badly…?)
She defended herself on Twitter, saying that she’s “not sure that picking up food in our sweat pants [sic] is ‘a night on the town,'” and that “you can see the damage to my face even in the dark. […] I get out about once a day for a little bit. It’s depressing staying in 1 room sleeping all day.” We don’t blame her! And, quite frankly, any method whatsoever that she chooses in order to get herself to a place where she feels happy, comfortable, and safe, is really not anybody’s business to judge.
Our thoughts go out to Christy as she recovers from her painful ordeal.
