Photos of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson at dinner together sparked rumors that the couple had reunited, but Lozada quickly explained that the photos are not what they seem.
A few days ago photo after photo was released of what appeared to be Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson back together and holding hands, and fans were sure that they were going to rekindle their relationship.
It seems like Ev and Rihanna have more in common than just rock hard abs. Just like RiRi, Lozada dropped her restraining order against the man who had in the past sent her to the hospital.
The Basketball Wives reality star quickly divorced Johnson, but it didn’t take long before they seemed to be getting closer and closer.
Lozada’s situation is so similar to that of Chris Brown and Rihanna that even she decided to speak up for the Bajan beauty.
Shortly after defending the “Diamonds” songstress, however, it was time to focus on defending herself.
Ev quickly took to her blog to explain that the dinner with her ex-husband wasn’t about him, it was about his daughter.
“It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control,” Lozada started as she prepared to do some serious rumor control. “I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciate dinner.”
We can understand wanting to be in his daughter’s life, but holding hands with her daddy is another story.
Of course, the fitness guru was quick to explain the hand holding photos as well.
“While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food,” she explained. “The blogs made last night seem as though, we walked hand and hand into the restaurant announce a reunion, which wasn’t the case.”
We actually believe Ev. One photo actually shows her pulling her hand away from Chad as he attempted to grab her hand upon entering the restaurant.
While it does seem likely that the pair wasn’t reuniting that night, however, it does seem like they are headed down that path.
“I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another,” Lozada continued. “…however we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go.”
For now the fitness blogger is focused on working on herself and trying to leave her table climbing days behind her.
“I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now I’m still working on becoming a better person,” she wrote. “Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.”
In other words, perhaps the reunion is in the cards but only after both celebs achieve their goals of becoming better people.
