Oh My…Chad Johnson spoke out for the first time today, after being released from jail 23 days early. As we previously reported, Chad was sentenced to 1 month in jail after ‘slapping’ his attorney on the butt in the courtroom. (While his sentencing was a bit over the top), Johnson says he’s happy the judge sent him to jail because it gave him time to reflect. While Chad was busy on Good Morning America, apologizing and explaining his actions, TMZ was busy posting the pictures of his infamous headbutting incident with his now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. This whole situation is so sad.
It’s been 10 months since the headbutting incident that set a torch to Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco’s marriage, and the images from that night have now made their way online. In the gruesome photos, that were leaked to TMZ this morning, Evelyn bears a huge bloody gash to her forehead. The entire situation bares uncanny similarities to Rihanna and Chris Brown’s 2009 domestic violence incident and the aftermath.
Just yesterday, Chad Johnson was released from jail after serving 7 days of a 30 day jail sentence, and during the court hearing, the judge described Evelyn’s injuries as “horrific.” Chad, meanwhile, revealed that the brief jail stint was a blessing in disguise:
I had a lot of time to reflect. A lot of time to think about where I’ve been, where I am now, and where I’m going.
A lot of people have tried to get me to slow down in life. Coaches, my agent, my lawyer. And there was one person that was able to do it. And that was my judge Ms. McHugh. Little does she know, I love her to death. Basically what she’s been is a blessing in disguise.
