Evelyn Says Chad Wouldn’t Have Married Her if She Really Behaved Like She Does on BBW

Evelyn and Chad may be over, but the cause of the former couple’s split is still very much a hot topic of discussion. Chad Johnson seems to have lost everything in the last few weeks, his career, his image, and last but not least, his new wife Evelyn Lozada. After allegedly head butting the Basketball Wives star, Chad Johnson was arrested and then promptly dropped from the Miami Dolphins. After the former couple’s show on VH1 that documented their wedding day was cancelled, Evelyn proceeded to file for divorce. She even stated that she felt like Chad had too many issues and needed help, and therefore their marriage was broken beyond repair. Although it’s been reported that Evelyn would have her first sit down interview with Good Morning America, it appears that her first interview since the incident will be with Nightline tonight.

As a form of promotion, some of her most memorable quotes have been released to the press. Here are some of the highlights of the interview:

Although Evelyn says she’s still in love with Chad, she explains why she decided to leave:

“It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love. But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”

After she made it clear that the two will not be getting back together, she states that she still thinks he’s a good person:

“I believe he loves me. I believe he needs to get help. He’s a good guy that made a bad choice. 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.”

After getting in the car to confront Chad about a receipt she discovered to a box of condoms , Evelyn says all hell broke loose.

“And then the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me. 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.”

He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him. 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.'”

Evelyn also said that she had to go to the hospital, where she received six stitches to her head. She also feels like Chad’s behavior was an indicator that the marriage wasn’t a healthy one:

“I said to myself, ‘I’m never going to go through that again, ever. I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.”

And since the marriage only lasted 41 days, many have suggested that the marriage was a sham and purely part of some ploy to garner publicity for both Chad and Evelyn. Evelyn denies the marriage was for publicity purposes:

“I was a very good fiancé and wife to Chad. I did everything I could to make his life better. The person on ‘Basketball Wives’ is not the person at home. I don’t think he would marry me if I was.”

Despite it all, Evelyn says she still loves him:

“I still love him. I feel bad for him because his life is now a mess.”

    Ok Evelyn. I get that what he did was wrong, but please stop saying your ratchet behavior on TV was an act.

    LOL ok so Chad marrying her was an indicator that she’s really a classy broad? I guess she hasn’t seen the jumpoffs he had while dating her. Chad doesn’t have the best taste in women. She wasn’t a prize.

    I’m not going to put this woman down, what she went through was tough. And she’s sill going through it now. Her behavior on the show is deplorable, but no one deserves this. The man actually head butted her. smh

    I want to say something nice, but I really can’t. So I guess I won’t say anything. #shrugs

    I still think the marriage was purely for business reasons. It’s the only thing that makes sense.

    So he grabbed her by her head. It’s not looking good for Chad.

    Chad is just scum. And it is rather unfortunate that he did this too. I hope he can fix his life.

    Man. I can’t even take this seriously. Looking at her in the snapshot from the interview, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen her look so plain Jane. Smh I’ll just leave it at that.
