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."

I read something somewhere that said people who say "I love them to death" usually will. Meaning they will end up killing them.

You have to stand by your apologies Chad! There is a difference in saying and doing them. Your apologies should have been to Evelyn first personally than your fans. I don't like your choice of words that you "love her to death". Not a good thing to say after DV. I would've chose the words "you lover her whole-heartedly". I believe if two people really love each other they should'nt quit on each other instead get some help! I don't know the situation but saying to the media that you want to enter porn is not a good thing for a marriage.

Since he is physically abusive, I think "to death" may be a poor choice of words. I hope he does continue to stay positive, but that could be difficult--he just lost everything.

2 things that this article says:


___________________________

1. "I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death." I think you misquoted him. What he meant to say was, "I truly love Evelyn dead."


2. He adds, "To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies.

Why the hell is he apologizing to the public for? Apologize to the one whom you have hurt not to all the people in the world, stupid ass. You are already unemployed and by saying sh_t like this won't give you your old job. You don't care about your career, isn't that right? Now, you don't have one. Voila!

Why do guys marry without a prenup, especially when there's alot of money that attracts golddiggers? Guys can be so foolish.
