Evelyn Lozada REVEALS She Was "HUMILIATED, EMBARASSED...IN SHOCK" By DOMESTIC DISPUTE With Chad Johnson
"BBW" star Evelyn Lozada tearfully revealed deets about the domestic dispute between she and estranged husband Chad Johnson on Nightline tonight. Get the deets on what happened and why Evelyn decided to walk away from the marriage inside.......
Evelyn Lozada sat for a revealing interview with Nightline last night where she opened up about the public failure of her marriage to Chad Johnson and why she walked away from their life together after only 41 days.
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."
Watch the interview here:
Evelyn was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City recently.
And for those wondering where Evelyn stands with Chad, she closed out her Nightline interview by saying, "Yes, I still love him. It's the hardest thing (CRYING) in the world to walk away from someone that you really love, but you have to walk away because I have to protect myself."
