This past Friday night, Evelyn Lozada appeared on Nightline to break her public silence over the recent physical confrontation and subsequent divorce between herself and new husband Chad Ochocinco.
In an emotional interview with the ABC News show, Lozada describes their fight in detail, saying “He grabbed me by here 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.” She also goes on to address those critics who doubted her story or even suggested she deserved or instigated the violence. Lozada says through tears, “It’s a little unfair. Whatever the perception of me is on Basketball Wives, that doesn’t justify what happened that day.” You can watch the entire Nightline clip right here.
