Evelyn Lozada reveals that she has "no hard feelings" towards her ex-husband Chad Johnson who allegedly physically abused her during their short-lived marriage.
Chad Johnson's ex-wife just revealed that she "doesn't have an ounce of hate" towards him despite being hospitalized after he head-butted her. This incident led to their divorce shortly after, but now that it's all said and done, she reveals why she doesn't have any hard feelings against him.

Returning home for this book tour was close to my heart because I returned home and had the opportunity to support another Bronx native. While I was growing up in the Bronx there was no book store to go to. @1st.Noelle has now opened the only book store in the Bronx, @TheLitBar. While at my book signing, I was honored to receive a proclamation by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. @ruben_diaz_jr, which meant so much to me. I am who I am because of where I came from, not despite of it. 🙅🏽♀️ Thank you to everyone who showed their love and support at each of my book signings ❤️ 📖 #PerfectDate #StMartinsPress #2ndTimeAuthor #TheLitbar #BarnesAndNoble #BronxGirl
“I am cool with Chad. We don’t phone each other all the time, but if I see him I don’t have one ounce of hate in my heart for him. You have to be able to forgive people because I feel if I am walking around angry, it takes away from the person that I want to be.”
The reality TV star also shares that if they see each other in public, they act civil and they have no ill will towards one another.

Great memories! ❤️🙏🏽 #Repost @1st.noelle File this under #BXGlow 🙅🏽♀️🍷💅🏾 @evelynlozada . The dynamic #EvelynLozada slid in my dms last week to express how important it was for her to support female entrepreneurs and give back to the place that made her. She did just that and I had the pleasure of welcoming her home for an interview on her latest novel, #ThePerfectDate. She was an open book 📖 ... we also chatted about her new #cbd-infused skincare line, "BX Glow" (represeeeeent 🙅🏽♀️), #basketballwives season 8, family, love, and everything in between. Hugs to Evelyn's team, my BXsellers, and the bookboos who showed out for this inspiring talk & signing. It was truly the perfect date. . 📸: @thisfades with the fade
The NFL star, "Ochocinco," was arrested in August 2012 just a month after their wedding for head-butting her. He pleaded no contest and received a year of probation.
Setting an Example
While she was physically hurt, Lozada reveals that there was nothing more painful than having to let her daughter see her that way.
"[It was] humiliating that my daughter saw me like that in the hospital… I never wanted her to think that this was okay. That is why I left [Johnson] — because I wanted to be an example for her.”
Being a star on "Basketball Wives," Evelyn was accused by her co-star Tami Roman of faking her domestic violence incident, which ultimately caused the ultimate scar in their friendship.
There's been long-standing beef between the two stars, but Roman accusing her of faking her abuse story was the last straw for Lozada.
A Back-and-Forth Argument
After Evelyn accused Tami of spreading a rumor that could have ruined Evelyn's relationship with Shaunie O'Neal, Tami shot back by saying that she lied about the Chad domestic abuse story.
“You lied on Chad. You know you was fighting that man. You were having all kinda issues all along. But because the neighbors saw… now you wanna be the domestic violence spokesperson.”
I know my truth, my ex knows the truth, and our families... That’s all that matters. I’m sorry to both families for having to re-live this over and over again! #basketballwives— Evelyn Lozada (@EvelynLozada) July 3, 2018
While Tami believes so, Evelyn stands firm in knowing the truth with the rest of her family and will keep it as a lesson in their memory forever.
