FSU Quarterback Deondre Francois’ Ex-Girlfriend Apologizes and Recants Domestic Abuse Allegations, Says She Only Wanted ‘to Scare Him’

A day after quarterback Deondre Francois was dismissed from the Florida State football team after allegations of domestic abuse, the woman who made the claims against him posted a lengthy apology on social media Monday.

The woman said the video was “to scare him not to ruin anything he had going for hisself (sic).”

FSU coach Willie Taggart’s decision to dismiss the redshirt senior was announced Sunday after the quarterback’s former girlfriend posted an expletive-filled, 24-second video on Instagram Saturday night alleging abuse by Francois.

The video did not show the altercation or either individual, but it picked up the audio. It was deleted soon after it was posted.

The woman’s apology was posted on the same Instagram account. It was also deleted, according to reports.
