This is devastating. Jonnu Smith, a star tight end for Florida International University, will reportedly be forced to end his season due to a terrible accident. Mary Gaspar, his pregnant girlfriend, allegedly left him with severe burns, Oct. 31, after pouring scalding hot water on his head, neck, back, shoulder and arm.
Jonnu Smith, 21, a senior and star tight end for FIU reportedly suffered severe burns to his head, neck, back, shoulder and arm after his pregnant girlfriend, Mary Gaspar, threw boiling water on him. The two were allegedly arguing on Halloween when the incident occured. So sad.
Mary was reportedly charged with aggravated battery according to the arrest affidavit obtained by the Miami Herald. The Miami Gardens resident apparently entered a not guilty plea, and she’s been released on a pretrial release order. In her arrest statement from police, Mary, who is reportedly five months pregnant, described the incident to police as such:
“The two argued through the day over the attention Smith was paying to her and their relationship. While in Smith’s dorm room and ‘feeling extremely emotional and stressed,’ she told police, she boiled a pot of water. Then, she walked over to Smith and poured it on him.
When Smith didn’t react strongly enough for her, she started hitting him with her open hands, she told police.” — per The Herald.
A Twitter user tweeted what appears to be Mary’s mugshot. The photo of the alleged mugshot is identified as such in multiple media reports on the incident. However, it is unclear if this photo is an official shot obtained by authorities.

There is no sign of Mary on Jonnu’s Instagram, as he hasn’t posted a single photo in three weeks. Her Twitter account has been deleted or removed, and the last time Jonnu communicated with her on the site was when he tweeted at her to “say less” on Oct. 28.

We’re not sure what could have gone wrong, since Jonnu did tweet “Got a real queen that hold me down no matter what,” to Mary just days before their reported argument on Oct. 16.
It is reported that the remainder of the senior football star’s season with FIU is unexpectedly over. As for his post-college fate, that is unknown at this time. He was been rumored to be an NFL draft prospect for this upcoming spring, however, the severity of his injuries is also unknown. It is said he may be considered a possible late-round pick, according to Fox Sports. Jonnu has been a crucial part of the FIU team. He has been known to be unstoppable when carrying the ball.
We truly wish Jonnu a speedy recover and hope he is well enough to get back on the football field in time for his hopeful NFL start. We will keep you filled in on any updates in this developing story.
