While the domestic dust-up between Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson and Evelyn Lozada has already caused it's share of subsequent damage, including stitches, divorce proceedings and the likely end of Johnson's professional football career, Johnson's NFL buddy Warren Sapp has come to his defense. In a recent interview, Sapp accused Lazada of being the aggressor in the fight that led to her apparent head-butting and Johnson's arrest for assault.
Sapp, a fellow Miami native, insinuated that holes in Lazada's story imply that the public doesn't know the full details. "When is the last time one of your homeboys called you and told you, 'Let me tell you about this fight at the club last night where this guy and his girlfriend were walking by and he turned around and head-butted the girl.' Never," he said. "He's taking the rap for it. We don't do that. She did it."
Sapp continued on the attack, essentially calling Lazada an empty, petty woman who depends purely on looks to get ahead in the world. "That's a woman that is going to depend on her beauty for the rest of her life to open any door she wants to walk through," he said. "And she's going to do what to her forehead? I'm done. [Chad] is a bunch of fun and I am sorry this had to happen to him."
Late last week, the "Basketball Wives" star was seen in public for the first time since the incident. She was wearing a hat, which covered her forehead almost entirely.
Johnson, who hasn't exactly fought back after the arrest, has already lost his job with the Miami Dolphins, a television gig and an endorsement with Zico coconut water. His termination from the Dolphins was depicted on the HBO's documentary series "Hard Knocks."
