The woman who was the girlfriend of the now infamous "Miami Zombie," Rudy Eugene, is speaking out.

Along with her attorney, Gloria Allred, Yovonka Bryant, told reporters there were warning signs that Eugene would eat off the face of a homeless man.

In a prepared statement, Bryant, 27, said she wanted to describe the Eugene she knew, not justify his actions.

“I love Rudy Eugene,” Bryant said. “I felt safe with Rudy.” She described Eugene, 31, as a family man and a religious person. Bryant said they never discussed voodoo or cannibalism and that her boyfriend was likely drugged without his knowledge.

“The time Rudy and I spent together, we took my kids out to the park, we dined in restaurants, we had family game and movie night at one of my relatives’ house, we often engaged in debates over what God really meant to people, and who was the biggest Miami Heat fan,” Bryant said.

High-profile attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Bryant, said she was hired in order expose the truth about who Rudy Eugene was.

“This is a high-profile case, she wanted to have the truth come out about her relationship with Rudy Eugene, and to have people understand who he was from her point of view, from her knowledge, from her experience. And that is why I’m here, to help her to have a voice and to help her tell what her relationship was and was not since Rudy Eugene can’t speak for himself,” Allred said at a news conference.

    this article if i had not already read cnn report based on this article as it is written indicated that the girl friend of Rudy “saw signs that he would commit such a crime”-but the girl clearly hired the attorney to represent her personal good opinion of Rudy. I also saw a interview she gave to a tv channel and she said she did not see any signs that he would do something like he did. I would seriouly like to know what caused this man to commit such a crime! Please revise, thank you.
