Vanesa Ruíz, cousin of Luis Rubiales, addresses Jennifer Hermoso: “We want you to tell the truth”
The family of Luis Rubiales has asked this Monday that the soccer player Jennifer Hermoso “tell the truth” and explain “why she has changed her statement three times” about the facts. The entourage of the disabled president of the RFEF has attended the media in front of the church in Motril (Granada), where his mother has locked herself up to start an indefinite hunger strike in view of the latest events.
Vanesa Ruíz Béjar, Rubiales’ cousin, has indicated that they have been suffering for days from a situation of “harassment and demolition that is not fair” in her hometown. The ex-soccer player’s mother has locked herself up with other relatives in the Divina Pastora parish, as a show of support for her son, suspended as president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) this weekend by FIFA after ensuring that he would not resign and justify his kiss with Jennifer Hermoso by assuring that he was consented.
“Jenni, we want you to tell the truth,” Vanesa told reporters. The family spokesperson explained that Rubiales’ mother, as a “very believing person, has taken refuge in God” and “she does not want to leave the church” because her family is “suffering a lot.” The closest circle does not consider “just what is happening” and believes that she has been “judged before her time.”

This family member maintains that “the statements” about the facts “speak for themselves” and “there are videos and audios.” “The mother is very ill, she is an older woman and she is in delicate health,” she added. Vanesa Ruíz explained that the woman spends “all day crying, without eating and without sleeping.”
Demelza Béjar Sánchez, another of the cousins of the suspended president of the RFEF, has described the lynching that is being carried out on an honest and legal person at the doors of the same church as “shameful.” The young woman has maintained that “when a woman feels attacked, she acts in other ways.”
“He made a mistake in an atmosphere of euphoria”, Demelza acknowledged, to later wonder aloud “who is not wrong”. The former soccer player’s cousin has added that Rubiales “never in his life would do any aggression before a woman” because everyone in his family is “educated from childhood with values and principles.”
The young woman has added that in the image of the kiss “you can see how a little peck tells him” and “he waits for an answer” that cannot be seen when Jennifer Hermoso is on her back, although she has opined that, “when there is an aggression , from the first moment, it shows in the faces ”. The relatives have not given information about her whereabouts, but they have explained that Rubiales is “suffering because he does not want his mother to do that”, in reference to the hunger strike that he has launched this Monday. The cousins of the disabled president have also criticized the attitude of “feminists, television, the press and politicians” considering that it is “shameful” that they are “taking advantage to beat him up.”
