Reuben Foster’s accuser testifies that he didn’t strike her
Elissa Ennis, the ex-girlfriend of 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, currently is testifying at Foster’s preliminary hearing on charges that, among other things, Foster struck her. Ennis has testified under oath that she lied to police when she said that Foster hit her.
“It was all a money scheme,” Ennis said. “I didn’t want to get this far in the news. It was about money.”
It was so much about money that, after Foster was arrested in February, Ennis said she returned to Louisiana with money and jewelry belonging to Foster.
