Evelyn Lozada Releases Statement on Domestic Violence Incident
“I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me,” the Basketball Wives star told TMZ about the argument that ended with her husband of six weeks in jail. “It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
The statement comes just days after the couple made headlines with the news of a bitter argument over the weekend. According to reports, the newlyweds were driving home from dinner on Saturday when Lozada found a receipt from a local drugstore for condoms. Lozada told local police that the argument quickly became physical when Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada in the forehead.
Following the incident, Lozada fled to a neighbor’s home where a 911 call for help was placed. She was later taken to an area hospital, where she was treated for a “pretty good sized” laceration, Davie, Fla., police Captain Dale Engle told NFL.com.
