Chad Johnson is breaking his Twitter silence following his much-publicized divorce from “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada. According to several media outlets, Chad just got a tattoo of Evelyn’s face on his leg over the weekend.
When fans asked Chad about his new ink, the former NFL player was not happy. “Divorce? Child please… that’s my WIFE RT @TeeSplash101: I really want to know why @ochocinco tatted Evelyn’s face on his leg post divorce,” he tweeted today (9/4) followed by “I dont give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for… RT @CCHx3REH: I thought she filed for divorce tho?”
Ev detailed the night that brought her to divorcing Chad on Nightline recently. Evelyn tearfully said that she “loves him” still but the distance has helped following the assault, during which Chad alleged head-butted her. “I would like for him to tell me he got help and that he’s working on himself,” said Evelyn when asked what she wants to hear from her ex. She added that “He loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that…It was his choice, it wasn’t mine.”
On Aug 12, reports surfaced that Chad was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly head-butting Evelyn in the forehead during an argument. Cops arrived at the scene and the “Basketball Wives” star reportedly had injuries to her forehead. A few days later, Evelyn released a statement via her publicist: ““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.”
