Evelyn Lozada is creating a lot of buzz on social media for making positive comments about Chad Johnson, also known as Ochocinco.
The pair was briefly married when they got into a heated argument that led to Chad head-butting her.
The police were called, and she filed for divorce before even going on her honeymoon.
While appearing on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast, Evelyn was asked by the host which one of her exes she would call if she found herself in a life-threatening situation.
The creator of Basketball Wives Shaunie O’Neal was asked the same question, and she said her former husband, Shaq, and when it came to Evelyn, she went with the ex-NFL star.
Shaunie O'Neal and Evelyn were on "Van Lathan's The Red Pill Podcast" when Lathan asked each lady which one of their famous exes they'd call if they were in a life-threatening situation and could only call one.Shaunie went with Shaq (duh, they have a perfect post-marriage life) while Evelyn chose the Ex-NFL star. "Chad. And not that I don't have faith in Carl, Carl would be there, but we're talking about if my life is on the line."(VIA:TMZ)@shaunieoneal5 @evelynlozada #BasketBallWivesMiami #BasketBallWivesLa #ShaunieOneal #EvelynLozada #BBW #BBWLA
The mom of two, who is dating French Montana, said: “Chad. And not that I don’t have faith in Carl, Carl would be there, but we’re talking about if my life is on the line.”
Many are baffled that she went with the man who assaulted her instead of Carl Crawford who is the father of her young son.
One fan shared: “Why do adults ask this kind of questions .let’s not do hypotheticals..just deal with what it is now..and stop being messy lol. Didn’t he head butt her? Now boo all them athletes you got under your belt you choose the one that almost put you on life support.”
Another commenter stated: “Pretty sure if she made that comment, they’ve either seen each other or @ least spoken by phone. He seems like a decent dude, @ least as a FATHER…he always loving on his kids…….its always two sides to every story. He’s not at all like the monster he was made out to be. He’s the sweetest man ever. Truly.”
A third person defended her by writing: “She was honest. I can see that. I love how vulnerable she became in her answer. She knows he’ll be there for her. Doesn’t means she wants him back. I’m not shocked because Evelyn didn’t get a chance to have a full-blown relationship with Chad, everything happens so quick! If it weren’t for the news and social giving their opinion on how she needed to leave him, she would’ve of stayed! & IM NOT JUDGING because we all have stayed in a relationship that was not healthy!”
For several years, Chad tried to get his ex-wife back, and this interview might open a Pandora box.
Are you surprised by her answer?
