The porn star Christy Mack who was viciously beaten half to death by her MMA fighter boyfriend War Machine has revealed what he said to her when they came face to face in court.
In 2008 Mack, 25, suffered from a ruptured liver and broke over a dozen bones in her face when War Machine, 33, attacked her after he claims he found her in bed with another man.
During his trial earlier this year War Machine was convicted of 29 charges of 34 including kidnapping, assault and sexual assault. He’s now facing a life in prison when he’s sentenced in June.
In an interview on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Mack revealed what her former boyfriend said to her when she first saw him in the court room and how traumatic she found it coming face to face with him once again.
I never looked at him except when I was asked to identify him. He had mouthed that he loved me and that was extremely difficult. And I began bawling immediately. Because, for a long time, I did feel, you know, still emotionally connected to him.
And while I don’t feel the love that I used to feel for him now, going through this process with somebody that you did love, or that I felt like I loved, is extremely hard.
2 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and last night. I've had several dentist visits to make eating more comfortable and make my smile look more normal. I still have a few more dental visits to go. I've had my eyes checked out and made aware that I'm very lucky to have my vision where it is, since the muscle is tethered by the fragments from the blowout fracture in my left eye. My multiple nose fractures will be fixed in the next couple of months. While they're fairly symmetrical, my nose is shifted on the inside and out causing breathing issues. (I also make everyone feel how my bone sticks out on the left side because it feels so weird.) My top lip will regain movement in less than 6 months… looking forward to using straws again. My liver seems to be alright. I was admitted back to the hospital shortly after I was released the first time for some minor treatment, but I did not have to have surgery. While my face is starting to look decent again from the swelling going down, it is still not my own. Cutting what was left of my hair off, and losing 15 lbs(it's a lot when you're 5'1") made me feel even further away from myself. It's hard to look in the mirror every day and see someone you do not know. After having makeup done and dressing up for yesterday's charity event, I felt much better about how I look now. It made me feel more normal, and beautiful for the first time in a very long time. The event that I went to was for Face Forward. A non profit charity that funds surgeries for women and children that have been in horrible situations that require them to have reconstructive surgery. They are not funding me, my surgeries are being donated by other doctors. I met many wonderful people and look forward to working more with them in the future.

War Machine has allegedly pleaded for his former girlfriend’s forgiveness on his blog also sharing the Johnny Cash lyrics ‘I knew I had it coming, I knew I wouldn’t be free’ on Twitter.
In his blog he claimed that he was happy to change his ways but hoped that Mack would believe he had ‘nothing but joy inside’ even if her got a life sentence and that all he wanted was her forgiveness.
War Machine will be sentenced next month.
