But I do know that when he gets out, he will kill me. After the attack, Mack was left with a broken nose, missing teeth, fractured eye socket, leg injuries and a lacerated liver. Koppenhaver was arrested in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley a week after the alleged attack in Las Vegas. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it's all just heart breaking. In court documents outlining 36 different charges against Koppenhaver, including attempted murder, the violent details are hard to read. I have shortened my list to about five trusted people, so that means not leaving the house for days or weeks at a time.
He said he thought he was going to die in the 12 minute battle. While testifying earlier int he day, she broke down in tears at several points while she explained the extensive injuries she suffered during the alleged altercation between her and War Machine, whose birth name is Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver. She heard the clanging of metal and believes he went looking for another knife. Mack, whose full name is Christine Mackinday, fought through tears when she told District Judge Elissa Cadish that she still fears for her life if Koppenhaver were to leave prison. During her recovery, it was the last thing she wanted, self-inflicted pain on top of all the other agony.
Mackinday communicated a few times with Koppenhaver, yelling at him and begging him to turn himself in. All sorts of rumors and false reports began to pop up about what happened that night. It comes after Monday's sentencing determined Koppenhaver, who legally changed his name during his fighting career, will not be able to get out of prison until he is at least 71 years old. I flinch when anyone puts their hand near my face.
After I left the hospital, I spent hours every day reading these messages and taking on all the deep emotion that they had put into their words to me. That's 100 per cent true,' Koppenhaver said in a statement. Before the sentence was handed down, Mack, born Christine Mackinday, read a letter to the court, breaking down several times as she described her relationship with Machine and the attack that left her with broken teeth, a fractured rib and a severely ruptured liver. At one point, he drew the ire of the judge for laughing when Mack described their volatile relationship. Of course she can't say for sure, but Mack thinks she may have been the last person in her high school to lose her virginity.
I feel that I have to stay strong for every woman that draws inspiration to leave their abusive situation and find ways to move on. As hard as the recovery was for her daughter, Mackinday was nearly broken into pieces by what happened last summer. He added that he had traded in his old 'false' life for his 'real' one behind bars. She wants to become active in the domestic violence community, and says she's done with porn films. And there were rewards and a kind of underground fame that she enjoyed.
Imagine that -- the most basic recognition, and it's gone. So when she was approached about posing nude, she traded the Midwest and marriage for What's Behind Door No. In the immediate future, Mack is planning a new tattoo. Which is exactly what Mack wanted.
So that's fun, I guess. Christy Mack looks at her face sometimes -- the new one -- and tries to decide if she likes it better than her old one. He originally pleaded not guilty to the 34 charges. I would really like to be able to say to everyone that they can trust in the justice system, and they should press charges against their abuser.
She answered a few, then packed those letters into a closet. He claims he found God now -- he's looking for any kind of way not to take responsibility for what happened. By the time she met Koppenhaver in the spring of 2013, she was an established porn star. Mackinday was confused, so she called him.
For most of the next week, her daughter was in the hospital as Koppenhaver evaded the authorities. They made no decision on those charges and the defense is filing a motion for a new trial. But the way her muscles healed after the attack, she now needs glasses. But in his statement, he said he regrets everything. I remember taking a breath for a scream, only to be met with a hand over my nose or mouth, not knowing if I will ever be able to breathe again. She has said she drifted in and out of consciousness as she was beaten, kicked and groped sexually.
