Evelyn Lozada Says She’s ‘Afraid,’ Chad Johnson ‘Needs to Get Help’

From TMZ.

Basketball Wives reality star Evelyn Lozada addressed her estranged husband Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson in an interview on Nightline Friday evening. Johnson was arrested for a domestic dispute with Lozada in which he reportedly headbutted her.

In the interview Lozada characterized Johnson as a good guy and said the incident was “a bad choice that destroyed his life … But it was his choice, it wasn’t mine.” Lozada added that she was “afraid” of Johnson but hopes he is getting the help he needs.

As a result of the dispute, Johnson, who had been a controversial player on the Miami Dolphins was fired by the NFL team. VH1 also canceled the couple’s spin-off reality television show which was scheduled to air in the fall.

Lozada said the incident occurred after she found a receipt for a box of condoms three weeks after their wedding. An argument that turned violent ensued thereafter. Lozada filed for divorce the next week.
