Evelyn Lozada on Chad Johnson Arrest: Domestic Violence is NOT Okay!

by at . Comments

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is speaking out for the first time since Chad Johnson's arrest for head-butting her, and she's not exactly downplaying events, standing by her husband or calling it a misunderstanding. She's pissed.

Evelyn told ET in a statement Tuesday:

Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson

"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 failed to take responsibility for his actions and has made false accusations; it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs."

"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."

Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco), has been charged with domestic battery and cut by the Miami Dolphins. VH1 canceled their reality show as well.

Johnson reportedly told police that it was Evelyn Lozada who head butted him, not the reverse, but the 911 call placed by their next door neighbor after the Saturday scuffle certainly does not leave that impression. Listen below:


Its kind of sad to hear some of the comments. No matter what its never ok for a man to hit a woman period! Women fight all the time either by words or physically hitting each other, but what people need to remember is that he is a football player and he is stronger than her. Its sad that some people think its ok and make it seem as if they are so perfect. Im glad that she is standing up for herself. My prayers to Evelyn. LLIKE I SAID ITS NEVER OK FOR A MAN TO ABUSE A WOMAN PHYSICALY & EMOTIONALY . NO MATTER WHAT.!!!!!!!!


Domestic violence is not OK Evelyn on both sides, Evelyn; you can't punk a man like you punk those women on 'Basketball Wives', Evelyn. You can't get up in a man whores face to confront him about having condems in his car, Evelyn. Just because you marry a man it does not mean that he has to change what he does and how he does it, Evelyn. You knew that he was a whore when you met him, people don't change,Evelyn. You must learn that you can't just rant and rave at you significant other to get your point across, Evelyn. Grow up Evelyn that is the exact reason why you have not prospered; stop being a Groupie you are too old you have a daughter in college; get a job make your own money stop depending on the paychecks of the athletes you sleep with.


Smh all you hating on Evelyn , whether she hit other people or not no man should put they hands on a female .


Evilyn do you remember how Tami reacted after you had been laughing in her face and backstabbing her knowing you fucked her husband? Do you remember how you tried to capitalize off it with your venomous mouth by selling tshirts???? Now you have nerve going off for finding condom receipt after you publicly announced it's ok for your man to fuck around? You HO, tramp, trick,slut CHECK YO SELF!


i don't feel sorry for Evelyn she is a goldigging bitch and when you think you got it made sometimes it back fires Jen wasn't wrong they are media whores the both of them you an't about this life either are you EVELYN


I agree with everything said here. Evelyn is a gold digging slut. She knew what she was getting into. On the other hand, Chad is a piece of shit and I hope he gets a lot of jail time for what he did to the stupid bitch. Now that she is on the receiving end of a beat down, she's not so tough, is she? Her hypocrisy and double standards are laughable, at best. They are both a joke and the sooner people stop giving them the attention they crave, the better.


well of course domestic violence is not okay, neither is putting your hands on anyone for that matter. she thinks it's okay for her to go after someone violently but it's different when she is the alleged victim.


Head butting is not something women do. He did it and now he will pay. I agree that we've all seen her act violently many times. She's not much better than him but in this instance let's be clear. He was wrong, period. Had she been injured by any of the women that she's terrorized I might feel differently. That, she might deserve. She's now pretending to act as though she's above this abhorrent behavior but we all know better.

Wv peach

I'm of the opinion that if Ocho hadn't physically harmed Evelyn, this would never have been an issue. I too saw the episode where she told him to tell her if and when he's cheating! Regardless, he shouldn't be a woman beater.


Actually, Lolo, Chad Johnson has an arrest record from a previous allegation of domestic violence, some 10+ years ago, so yes he does have a history of violence.
