Last night, Evelyn Lozada sat down for an exclusive interview with Nightline, speaking for the first time on the altercation she had with her husband, Chad Johnson earlier this month. Evelyn spoke in detail, revealing information we’ve been wanting to know since the news of the incident broke.
On August 11, Evelyn Lozada was taking groceries out of a car that her husband, Chad Johnson used to drive to football practice when she found a bag in the backseat with a toothbrush holder and a Walgreens receipt for a box of condoms inside. The receipt was dated July 20, she said, three weeks after they were married.
When Chad Johnson came home later that evening, Lozada said she got into his car to confront him about the receipt and threatened to leave him.
“And then the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me,” Lozada said. “I felt blood coming down my face… and I looked at him and I said, ‘You just head-butted me?’ And it just — everything just felt if it was in slow motion.”
The 36-year-old reality star said she tried to remain calm during the exchange because she said Johnson was angry, and denied he had done anything wrong.
“He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him,” she said. “He got out of the car, really, really quick and ran into the house, and I said to myself, ‘I need to get out of here.'”
Lozada said she ran to a neighbor’s house where she hid outside until the neighbor came home and called the police. She then went to the hospital where she said she received six stitches on her forehead.
We wish the best for both Evelyn and Chad. Domestic abuse should never happen under any circumstance.
