Evelyn Lozada’s wedding to Chad Johnson (Ochocinco) has turned into a nightmare and the latest news update confirm that it’s over – 6 weeks later. On Saturday night the Basketball Wives star found herself in a domestic incident that sent her to the hospital, Chad Johnson to jail and released from his team and VH1 to cancel their wedding special, “Ev and Ocho”.
Just under an hour ago Evelyn filed divorce papers in Florida claiming her marriage is “irretrivevably broken.”
“It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, 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. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.”
Chad has also released his first statement since the incident – an apology on Ochocinco News Network;
“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred. I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”
This is a sad turn of events for Evelyn and Chad. While many never believed it woud last I don’t think anyone thought it would end like this!!
