Hope Solo has repeatedly claimed that, when she’s set on meeting a goal (or for that matter, blocking a goal) she achieves it — no matter what stands in her way. Such was the case last night, when, despite having accompanied then-fiance Jerramy Stevens to court the day before, Hope shared her vows with the man said to have assaulted her. How will the Dancing with the Stars alum’s new relationship status impact the ongoing investigation?
Strange details continue to emerge in the aftermath of an assault investigation surrounding the newly married Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevens. The two appeared in court in Kirkland (a suburb of Seattle) but failed to reveal many details about the alleged assault. No doubt hounded by the media from the moment they said “I do,” the couple has since made a point of ignoring interview requests. It could be a while before we know what really happened, and even then, we’re not convinced that any explanations from Hope Solo or Jerramy Stevens will be completely honest.
According to Kirkland Lieutenant Mike Murray, the investigation is going to be a lot harder to carry out now that Hope and Jerramy are hitched. And things will be even worse if their relationship continues to be as fraught with tension as Hope’s brother suggests. Murray explained, “If the parties are not cooperating it’s not ideal.” Still, the Kirkland police department is determined to get to the bottom of the case. “We take domestic violence issues very seriously. We realize it doesn’t get better.”
We hope (pun intended) that things turn out okay for the DWTS alum and Olympic athlete. It really would be a shame to learn that she wasted some of the best years of her life in an abusive relationship.
