And you can see from the end of the video… she fell clean off the stage. It was probably a good 5-6 feet… maybe more?
However, after Matt’s pretty embarrassing display of what some might call intoxicated cowardice, the Los Angeles Rams, Stafford and his wife Kelly are pitching in to pay all of Smiley’s hospital bills, and for her broken cameras as well.
The team released a statement that read:
“We have been in communication with Kelly Smiley since yesterday’s incident and we are sorry for what happened.
As we told Kelly, we will be covering all her hospital bills and replacing her cameras. We wish her a speedy recovery.”
On top of that, her friends started a GoFundMe to help support hospital costs and new cameras, which has already reached over $43,000, beating their goal of $30,000.
Not sure who is getting that but sounds like some folks might be due a refund.
