The judge cleared the courtroom to allow for Ennis to compose herself and continue with her testimony, during which she admitted that she was trying to ruin Foster's National Football League career after he said he was leaving her.
Prosecutors, however, believe Ennis initially was telling the truth when she said Foster dragged her by her hair down stairs and punched her as many as 10 times before throwing her out of the house.
"I was threatening Reuben, that I was going to f*** up his career", Ennis said.
'I'm sorry, ' Ennis tearfully admitted in court on Thursday, according to ESPN.'I really am.
Ennis had accused Foster of attacking her in their Los Gatos home.
Wiens, who testified after Ennis, said he had doubts about that fight taking place and did not follow up with authorities in San Francisco because he did not have a location or further information to go on. Ennis admitted that in 2011 she went to jail for a false claim of domestic violence against an ex-boyfriend and also charged with two counts of aggravated assault in separate incidents.
Thursday, she testified that it was all a series of lies, according to multiple reports, and that she had become enraged when the couple broke up.
Ennis says that she took money and jewelry from Foster after the incident.
"Cam Inman (@CamInman) May 17, 2018Reuben Foster's ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis started crying on stand while recounting how he told her "I can't do it anymore" in breakup".
Inman reports that Ennis said she called 911 three times during the altercation because she "wanted to be extra". "I took more than money".
The 49ers said they will release Foster if the allegations prove true.
"(Foster) did not strike her, injure her or threaten her", said Rickard. Ennis also said "it was all a money scheme". That determination by Judge Nona Klippen has not been made as of this posting.
