Chad Johnson has commented publicly for the first time since he allegedly bashed his head into Evelyn Lozada’s and was arrested for domestic violence.

Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce Tuesday after just 41 days of marriage.

The NFL star, who has been released by the Miami Dolphins (and VH1), issued a brief statement on his official website late yesterday afternoon:

Chad Johnson Is Shirtless

“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred.”

“I wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL.”

“To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”

Note the lack of apology to Lozada directly there, only to “everyone” for “recent events.” Nice work by his lawyer, vaguely covering all the bases legally.

The 34-year-old wide receiver clearly doesn’t believe his career is over, despite being out of a job following the surprising domestic violence arrest.

Whether it is or not, it looks like his marriage is kaput. Head-butting aside, their condom fight was clearly foreshadowed by Chad’s cheating ways.
