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:
"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."
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:
