Evelyn Lozada is speaking out for the first time since her husband Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night for domestic battery. He allegedly head butted her, which resulted in a large 3 inch facial cut across her forehead. She spoke exclusively to “Entertainment Tonight.”
It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.
Reports are saying Chad “did not have any visible marks or bruises” and he is saying Evelyn head butted him.
Things have been spiraling downward for the two since the incident- Chad was cut from the Miami Dolphins, their spin-off reality show, “Ev & Ocho” was cancelled, and I am sad to report that Evelyn’s brother-in-law, Anthony Ochoa, who battled cancer for a long time, passed away last night. Anthony was able to walk her down the aisle at her wedding last month, which was something Ev had always hoped he would be able to do. In a statement to TMZ, she said,
Anthony was an amazing husband, father, and brother-in-law. He will be dearly missed.”
