Prosecutors released a bunch of photos showing bruises on the woman, which she claimed Elliott inflicted. The City Attorney Office says it tried to determine the source of the injuries.
They’re not saying it, but it appears prosecutors couldn’t find enough evidence to pin it on Elliott. According to docs, Elliott told police the bruises were from a fight she’d had with someone else at a nightclub.
Elliott has always maintained the woman was NOT a girlfriend … just someone with whom he had a “sexual relationship.”
