'I Love Evelyn to Death'

breaking news

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."

And now this ... Chad just changed his Twitter picture to a sign that reads "Rock ... Hard place" with arrows pointing in opposite directions. Wonder what he's trying to say ...

There is always a second chance, and I am sure some team will give him one. He and Evelyn are two people who shouldn't be married. She is very abusive, although I think he did hurt her, she is a hot mess in the temper category. Love her to death? if they continue their relationship that statement will become fact.

I don't even believe Evelyn loves herself like that, so he shouldn't either! I'm sure she filed for divorce, because the man doesn't have an income now!

Don't know if abusers should be advising their victims that "they love them to death." Often they do.

The hypocrisy is astounding. Evelyn says there is no excuse for domestic violence. But it's apparently ok for her to assault any woman who contradicts her. I stopped watching Basketball Wives because it just upset me. I would always comment: "That bitch belongs in jail." (similar thoughts on Drita from Mobwives. Assault is ok if it's done for ratings?

Note to Chad: Evelyn is a gold digger, as soon as you lost your job she was out, but needed an excuse to get out and unfortunately she found one quick.

Chad will be so much better off without that hot head in his life...shame he fell for her but now he knows what she really is all about....she'd probably head butted him and he is too classy to embarrass such a person....Chad, think of it as taking out the trash in your life.....Hope to see you in NY Jets uniform soon with T-E-B-O-W ...Dolphins loss..Jets gain ( soon to be announced I bet )

Rock and a hard place. Right, trying to make himself out to be the victim. Sorry, I can never take the side of a woman abuser.

She is a bitch. If you just had to smack her around you should have made it worth your while instead of *****ing around.

Don't be fooled by his rhetoric. I heard a death threat in that bogus apology. Anyway, apologies are for cir***stances that you didn't mean to happen. They are not an escape route for bad behaviour. Someone should tell that to the American public.
