Chad Johnson Threatened to KILL Evelyn Lozada, Alleged Friend Claims

by at . Comments

Chad Johnson’s arrest for domestic battery is making headlines, but an alleged friend of his says it's not the first violent episode between them.

"Chad didn't like [Evelyn Lozada]'s party lifestyle and it made his anger worsen,” the source added. “He hated the way she acted on [Basketball Wives]."

"He would often lash out at her for any little thing."

The turmoil may have been a long time coming for Chad, whose subsequent release by the Miami Dolphins was even filmed for HBO's Hard Knocks.

Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Evelyn Lozada

Johnson’s pal says that Evelyn Lozada filing for divorce from Johnson just 41 days after they tied the knot does not come as a surprise.

"Chad and Evelyn's marriage was volatile in nature and a mistake from the start,” the friend said, adding that epic fights were almost the norm.

"He [Chad] went off the scale at her once because he was tired of having Evelyn's friends, like her assistant and stuff, living in his house."

The Johnsons' friend also says a group of pals close to the couple were beginning to get very concerned for Lozada’s safety and well-being.

"She told me Chad threatened to kill her one time and that was really a red flag," Radar Online (we know) quotes the insider as alleging.

"But only a small circle of her friends knew what was going on and it was very hard to convince her to get out of the situation."

On Thursday, details of Johnson’s alleged mistress surfaced after a Boston woman named Beverly Shiner claimed she slept with him. A lot.

Shiner says that Johnson had no trace of remorse for his cheating ways and made no effort to hide his affair, even after getting married.

Johnson was arrested last weekend after he and Lozada got into a nuclear spat over a receipt for condoms she discovered in their car.

The NFL star allegedly head-butted Lozada, leaving a gash on her forehead and leading to his release from the Miami Dolphins and VH1.

Domestic Violence: Abominable,regardless if the perpetrator is male or female). Buttt (no pun intended), did he really head-but her??? That is something our 3 yr old grandson does. Something doesn't add up. Besides, she has shown much violence on her show--throwing full, unopened wine bottle at co-star's head (if it had landed, the results would've been worse than a head butt), jumping up on and running across table to hit her former best friend, etc. When her assistant slapped her former best friend (after instigation from Evelyn), and charges were filed, she felt the charges should be dropped, that in the hood you don't call the police. Well, since she's all "hood", SHE SHOULD DROP THE CHARGES!!!

Domestic violence is 100% not tolerated in my space at all....I'm so glad Evelyn decided to file for divorce from his ass as quick as she did....she realized she deserved better....better late than never....it's crazy because I never knew that chad was this person....I guess everybody to a certain point wears "masks" but they can be worn only for so long and then the true person begins to emerge....I was really rooting for them and to be honest it feels like I am in the twilight zone....best of luck to her and even chad....I never wish the worst for someone....no matter what they did....

Think about it . She had to head butt him . She was the one upset , and mad . Think about how she acted on the show when she got up set with the women always throwing glasses and wine bottles . Jumping off of tables . She mad because he was doing what he said he was going to do and what she agree to If it didn't come out and he still was going to play football . She would not be trying to divorce him . I am truly praying for him to get pick up by another team . She not abuse woman . She more of a abuser . To women and men . Always keeping up mess .

what does interracial marriage have to do with this situation. It is a domestic violence case, between to very very headstrong people. Lozada is not white she is hispanic not white a Puerto Rican. This is a tough woman with a very nasty reputation, and a mouth on her, she is also violent with a nasty temper. Watch her on her TY show. Im certain that she threw the first punch or a bottle at him first, her cut showed, she is fair skinned, he is dark so maybe his bruises from her didnt show cause of his skin color. Anyway this story has gotten too much attention, let them go their seperate way, she will find another athlete and get into more trouble with that temper, and he will make the same mistake with a new woman good luck to the both of them

Evelyn I wonder if this man is just obsessed with you and we couldn't see it. Either way God is still awesome because he still has you here with us and we are truly grateful. Woooooow, just before you got married I prayed even had some friends prayed and sowed a seed for you not realizing that those seeds would've helped to save your life. GOD works in mysterious ways and he is so, so awesome I can't stop thanking him.

there are two sides to a story, and the truth. It will all come out.
He does not look like the person he is being potrayed and I feel very sorry for him. His life is coming apart because of ONE woman. GEEZ!!!!

I am white and I can tell you right now that I do not believe in racial mixing (marriage and kids), HOWEVER, this is not about race and you can NOT generalize and say ALL black men are this or that. It's bullshit to say something so ridiculous. Ochocinco, on the other hand, probably fits the steroetype you describe. He is one creepy dude, but the thing he married is even worse than he is. All she wanted was the fame and attention that came from being with this guy. The best thing any of us can do is not pay attention to the slimy whore and let her fade away to the nothing that she is. I beleive she IS using this opportunity to garner press for herself and make Chad look as bad as she can possibly make him look. He doesn't need any help, his actions speak so much louder than any words that can be said. As far as Lozada goes, Chad is still better than what she deserves. She's a tired old gold-digging, bullying whore.
