fb jagged kyle and wifeIn case you missed it, last year Kyle Norman, who is a member of the 90’s R&B group, Jagged Edge, viciously beat his wife, Marrikka. During the attack, he also admitted that in addition to beating her, he choked her and he tried to make her swallow her engagement ring, by attempting to shove it down her throat.

It’s been about a year since that brutal incident and Kyle and his wife are back together. In fact, they were just dating when the attack happened, but immediately after the attack, Kyle asked Marrika to do what Jagged Edge’s song says and that was to “meet him at the altar in no time flat”…and Marrikka agreed.

They recently appeared on the Steve Harvey Show to address the situation publicly and Marikka revealed that after she decided to get back with Kyle, it cost her a lot- it ruined her career, some of her family members, including her father, have stopped speaking to her because they hate that she has placed herself back into possibly a dangerous situation with Kyle. Those weren’t the only things Marika and Kyle lost though, they also lost their foster child immediately after their altercation went down at their home, which apparently hurt the child tremendously because she didn’t want to leave. Here is the first part of what Marrikka explained about why she took Kyle back and what her father did after their fight:

See how Steve Harvey kept it 100% real with Kyle about his abusive ways…

Marrikka responds to people who may think that she is naive for taking Kyle back after the abuse:


Kyle and Marrika’s interview left people with mixed reactions- some say that Kyle is taking steps in the right direction by owning up to his actions and some say once an abuser, always an abuser and that Marrikka is out of her mind for getting back with him.

We applaud the Kyle for willingly speaking out about what he did, BUT we do not applaud him for beating his wife- his Queen, whom he is supposed to protect and love unconditionally. So I think the only upside in this, is that it does take a real man to own up to his wrongs and at least Kyle did do that on national television for all of the world to witness and ridicule. Maybe one day, Marrikka’s loved ones will be able to forgive him-but never forget. We wish Kyle the best with his road to redemption and his recovery from alcoholism and domestic abuse.
