Evelyn Lozada Gets Emotional In Video While Talking About Ex Carl Crawford Who Is Accused Of Domestic Abuse
Many were surprised to learn that Carl Crawford had been arrested for physically assaulting a woman, now these people are baffled by the fact that his baby mama, Evelyn Lozada, has decided to defend him.
The Basketball Wives star took to social media, where she posted a video explaining that she has been seeing rumors circulating on the Internet, claiming that she was abused by her former fiancé.
The reality TV star, who shares a son with the Dodger, said during their romance; he never hurt her.
Evelyn, who has been vocal about domestic violence against women after her ex-husband, Chad Johnson beat her, took the opportunity to explain that she is not discrediting the alleged victim.
She wrote the following message accompanied by a video: "My truth ♥️
With all that’s going on in the world right now, I hate that I have to even address this... I will always be empathetic to ANYONE who has experienced any form of domestic violence and in NO WAY would I ever undermine anyone else’s alleged experience. That is their story to tell. However, after numerous calls, tweets, DM’s and bloggers claiming that I’ve said that my ex-fiancé, Carl Crawford, intimidated or physically hurt me, I felt I had to speak regarding my relationship with Carl. The Carl I hear about lately is not the Carl I personally know. During our 4 Year engagement & while co-parenting our son, Carl has never been violent or threatening. We have a positive relationship. Again, I take the time to speak on this for my son, who I never want to grow up and feel as if his father hurt his mother in any way. I also do this because I won’t allow bloggers looking for clicks to manipulate MY story and take away from those women who need their true stories heard. There is NO story here, and I have no additional comments. If anyone is struggling with an abusive relationship and is looking for resources or help, please reach out to [email protected]"
A fan had this reaction: "🙏🏼 Thank you for sharing. I was in an abusive relationship for years I never shared my story until my incarceration. I would love to be apart of your organization, sharing my story is continuous therapy for myself, and it also can help others. I name my org. Sylentheart because the abuse was a silent epidemic. During my time, many women were a shame to speak about it. I’m so proud of the many women that are speaking up for change. Thank you again. I’m here to help in any way I can. Proud of you. ❤️🙏🏼"
Another commenter applauded her: "Yes, 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽Control your narrative. Glad you spoke on this... so many ppl try to tell your story. Your story from your mouth... is your power... ❤️❤️❤️"
This backer wrote: "Evelyn, you are a good person. We have love for you, girl. You don’t have to explain anything to no one god bless 🙏 God is with you all the time blessings to you and your family.😍🙏😇"
A critic told her this is not the time for this conversation: "Has she said anything about Black Lives Matter?! For this is a genuine question.All I can think about when I see her is, “Ocho Cinco wanted me,” Maybe she should be single for a while to reflect on who she is. You mirror relationships ijs."
Was Evelyn wrong to bring this up right now.
