Reuben Foster’s ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, has appeared on “Good Morning America” and made a number of noteworthy comments regarding the legal situation surrounding her and the former 49er.

Ennis, who originally told police that Foster attacked her in February, only to recant that accusation, has now said that she was lying when she renounced that charge.

Ennis said she did not want to ruin Foster’s career.

“I did what I had to do for the person I loved,” Ennis said. “I thought he would change. Anybody in my position would do the same,” Ennis said.

The 49ers parted ways with Foster at the end of November after he was involved in another domestic dispute with Ennis. She said the team attempted to interject itself into that episode, which occured at the team’s hotel in Tampa/

“The 49ers came up there,” Ennis said. “I have pictures of the 49ers coming up there talking to police, saying I’m the same ex-girlfriend who sat up there and lied.”

The Niners have since released a statement:

Foster was arrested the night of Saturday Nov. 24, the 49ers announced plans to cut him the next morning and then the Redskins claimed him on Tuesday.

“When he got signed, I was like, ‘I can’t believe somebody picked him up,’” Ennis said. “I just couldn’t believe somebody picked him up in less than — how many hours? Like, I was shocked.”
