Chad Johnson has broken his silence ... and has issued an apology "To everyone for the recent events that have occurred" involving his wife Evelyn Lozada.

Moments after Evelyn filed for divorce, Johnson released a statement on his website regarding his recent domestic violence arrest ... saying, "I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death."

He adds, "To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies.  I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life."

Even though Johnson was dropped from the Miami Dolphins, the 34-year-old wide receiver doesn't believe his football career is over ... saying, "I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL."

He keeps changing his avatar on twitter and has unfollowed Evelyn. Or maybe she blocked him. She's a fame harlot and needs anger management. And he needs a job lol.

TEAM CHAD!! Continue to take the high road. Her abusive recent past of beating up and abusing women is all on recording on film in the last two Seasons of BBW. I am just wondering why TMZ or Harvey are not showing those clips or looking into her background??!! If she wasn't portraying herself as the innocent one and you the bad guy she would probably get some slack. She abused and terriorized woman on many episodes. Domestic violence is a serious issue and she is the perp too. BIG TIME.

Wow ...    

Indeed, the death part is a tad scary. Each of them needs help. Her too...I haven't been a viewer of their shows, but based on comments, she has issues as well. They do not belong together. Finalize the divorce - do not go backwards people, either of you. A partner is suppose to bring out the best in you, not this...

He has no choice but to publicly apologize, everything is being ripped away from him, his legs have been kicked out from under him.
So, in a typical situation to men, he has to jump through hoops to try and save his career and life.
Sad situation, even if he really did headbutt her, it's in no way shape or form justified to kill his career, destroy his jobs and sabotage his reputation.
But that's how it rolls in Feminist America...for now....though feminism is factually a dying movement and more women every year declare that they don't like feminism and don't want to be part of it.
Good times they're a-comin' round the bend ;)

NBA player, NFL player both off her checklist... next up the MLB. More material for her Basketball Ex-Wives show. Her whole career is built off of ruining athlete's careers.

When an abusive man says he loves a woman to death, believe him. Unfortunately, one day it just might be true.
