Irwin Rivera’s sisters have spoken out in support of their sibling despite having been the victims of his attempted murder charges earlier this week.
As the story has developed it’s become increasingly clear that mental health issues appear to have been at the root of the violent attack that left both sisters with multiple stab wounds, and as such, they just want to see him get the help he needs to get better.
“Me and kelz are fine n well so we just wanna clear the air n let it be known that this is not about us!” the UFC bantamweight fighter’s sister Lezlye Rivera wrote on Facebook. “We love our brother to the fullest and anyone that knows us n our family knows exactly how much we all LOVE and mean to eachother and knows jst how close we as a family are , all we wish is for him to get the professional mental help he so desperately needs.
“Something must of went terribly wrong or Irwin’s brain or mind needs to be checked because I know this man along with many teammates and coaches,”Alvarez wrote on Twitter. “He is all love. I’m truly sad to see this and praying for his sisters and family. This is not Irwin.”
