Christy Mack is getting that regrettable tattoo blocked out. You know, the one that says: “Property of War Machine.”
Christy Mack and MMA fighter “War Machine”, AKA Jon Koppenhaver, used to be an item. Then he — allegedly — beat the hell out of her. Since then, they sorta cooled off. Koppenhaver was arrested, Christy Mack has undergone surgeries, and then he tried to kill himself while in jail.
Koppenhaver’s fan base has been pretty vicious to Christy Mack, as though her being a porn star entitled their intrepid hero to knocking her teeth out. Since then, she has had some veneers put in just so she can eat.
“I didn’t look in the mirror for weeks,” Mack told ESPN recently. “Just feeling my face, I knew it wasn’t right. So when I’d look in the mirror, it’s not me — that person wasn’t me. It’s so hard to go every day without being you anymore.”
Although she is thankful for her veneers, which allow her to function somewhat normally, they are uneven. She won’t smile for cameras right now, not until she gets some better dental work done.
I seen this kid make a comment about how Christy Mack deserved what she got because she didn't fuck black guys. You get no play obviously

As Mack retells the tale that we have heard so many times, she reveals some new details that most may not have been aware of. For example, her address was released as part of the public police record of the beating incident. So she could not go back home. She had to move.
Christy Mack has been through so much pain in the past several months, but she plans on enduring some more — this time voluntarily. She is going to get a new tattoo. This one will be designed to block out the red stencil print that says “Property of War Machine.”

For his part, War Machine has written about who is to blame for what happened. He lays blame on society as a while, Christy Mack herself, and wishes that other guy he — allegedly — beat on that night had not been there when he showed up. If only, that would’ve changed it all.
Christy Mack assesses War Machine’s mindset. “He blames his childhood, he blames me, he blames fighting. He claims he found God now — he’s looking for any kind of way not to take responsibility for what happened.”
