In a sit-down interview that aired on TODAY on Friday, Feb. 8, Lorena claimed she did not remember details of cutting of her husband John Wayne Bobbitt’s member with a kitchen knife in their Virginia home. She later fled the scene and flung it out of her car window.
Fortunately for Bobbitt, police tracked down his severed penis and it was successfully reattached.
After 25 years, Lorena claimed to NBC’s Kristen Dahlgren that “repeated verbal, physical and sexual abuse” motivated her to commit the act. She also admitted she has no regrets.
“Oh my god how could you regret something that was not planned?” Lorena told Dahlgren in the video shown above. “How could you? You have to understand, I wasn’t in my right mindset.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Lorena was found not guilty of malicious wounding by reason of insanity. John Wayne also was found not guilty of marital sexual assault.
The ex-wife defined herself as a victim. In the midst of the Me Too movement, Lorena said she believes her story is a “gift.”
“If I can help change a life then my mission is worth it,” she said.
Lorena’s story will be told on a four-part documentary with Amazon. She said she hopes the series helps to “break that taboo” of domestic abuse.
“I think my story, the documentary, will actually push that conversation again on the table and say, ‘Look, yes, it happened 25 years ago but things are not changing much.’”
Lorena also claimed that John Wayne has since reached out to her over the years via “Valentine’s cards” and “love notes.”
The ex-wife’s shocking interview comes days after Bobbitt sat down with ABC’s 20/20 claiming that his once-detached member is “normal now.”
