Evelyn Lozada sat for a revealing interview with Nightline last night where she opened up about the public ending of her marriage to Chad Johnson and why she’s walking away from their life together after only 41 days. The romance that started publicly and had most people doubting if it was real or a publicity stunt, eventually grew on fans and had them rooting for the happy couple. The pair seemed perfect for each other, but you never know what goes on behind closed doors. It has now been speculated that Chad had been cheating on Evelyn with several different woman during their entire relationship. These woman have come forward with evidence of their encounters. It’ s sad. No matter what anyone thinks of Evelyn as a person, she really did seem to be in-love and Chad Johnson has a very eccentric but charming and like-able persona. So when the alleged incident happened several weeks ago, people were honestly shocked. This is the first interview Evelyn has given since the incident and filing for divorce.
She said it all began when she found a receipt in Chad’s car.
“…And the very first thing that was on there was that he purchased a box of condoms. So I looked at the date and it was, like, July 20 something, it was literally, like, three weeks after my wedding.“
Evelyn confronted Chad about the receipt and he denied sleeping around…but she didn’t buy it.
“I knew that he was lying. And I told him, I never forget telling him, I said, “I’m not stickin’ by you through this. I don’t care if my marriage is the laughing stock of the world and people laugh at me. I’m not stickin’ by you through this.”
“He got upset. He just….he came a whole other person and he was like, “I didn’t– I didn’t do anything. You’re accusing me.” And then the next thing I know, he– he grabbed me by here and he headbutted me. And all I felt was, you know…I felt, like, you know, blood coming down my face.”
Evelyn was treated at the hospital and given 6 stitches for the headbutt while Chad was arrested for the assault.
When asked how she felt after the issue hit the media, she said, “…Humiliated, embarrassed…in shock. I was in shock that my fairytale, my life or, you know, I felt like I was supposed to be starting my life, had just ended.”
When questioned about her image on “BBW” and critics who say she might have “deserved it” (because of karma) Ev said,
“I understand it, but I also think that it’s like saying, “Well, look at that woman that– look at what she had on. That’s why she got raped,” you know? I just feel like– I feel it’s a little unfair, you know? Whatever the perception of me is on Basketball Wives, that doesn’t justify what happened that day, you know? That’s catty drama amongst women on a reality show.”
So where does Evelyn go from here? Will we still see her jumping on tables and throwing bottles? She said,
“You won’t see me throwin’ a bottle. I’ll tell you that. You know– I’m always gonna voice my opinion. But you won’t see me actin’ a fool, you know? I’ve grown a lot in the last couple months.”
We wish both Evelyn and Chad the best. So sad.
