Elissa Ennis, the girlfriend of former 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, claims that the team interfered with a police investigation following the alleged domestic abuse she was a victim of.

Foster’s Girlfiend Says Cops Were Deceived By 49ers

Foster was cut after Ennis accused him of slapping her at the team’s hotel on Nov. 24 in Tampa. After she called the police, Ennis claims that the 49ers arrived to dissuade police from believing her story, informing them that she was the one who had previously lied about a similar situation. The 49ers denied any interference and released a statement on Thursday following Ennis’ testimony during a Good Morning America segment where she detailed the incident.

“The 49ers fully cooperated with authorities, assisted in locating Mr. Foster and in no way impeded their investigation,” a team spokesman said.


The 49ers placed Foster on waivers following the dispersion of the news. Nine’s general manager John Lynch said Foster was “not living up to what we had communicated and to the energy and the time that we’ve invested in him.” Foster was picked up by Washington, the only team to place a claim, just days after. Ennis called the pickup a “slap in the face.”

“I couldn’t believe someone picked him in up in how many hours?” Ennis said. “I was shocked.”

Foster is ineligible to play, as he is currently on the NFL commissioner’s exempt list, and is not expected to appeal his placement on the list as the legal process plays out.
