Evelyn Lozada

Chad Is 'A Good Guy

Who Made a Bad Choice'

8/31/2012 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Evelyn Lozada says despite his arrest for allegedly head-butting her, she still loves estranged husband Chad Johnson -- but adds she can't imagine speaking to him any time soon.

In an interview with "Nightline" that airs tonight, Lozada described the alleged domestic violence incident as "a bad choice that destroyed his life ... But it was his choice, it wasn't mine."

Lozada said she hopes Chad is getting help and she wants "the best for him," but says that being apart is "the right thing."

Johnson is expected to be arraigned in September. Evelyn filed for divorce 2 days after his arrest.

I suffered from a domestic violence incident. One where I was almost killed. I talked to the cops and a few close friends. There was no freaking way I would have been able to do a full blown network interview as I was spending most of my time having panic attacks in the bathroom. I guess everyone is different but her ability to talk openly about it makes me question her motives for marrying him, having that intense of a fight with him and then dumping him and running and telling the world. Literally, she's telling the world. As a domestic violence survivor, I am really confused by her.

You wanted this worldwide attention and you got so shut up and ride this out to riches. And if you're truly good with your acting, maybe Oprah will come calling.

Um last I checked, when you head butt someone and they have a so-called gash on their forehead, there would be a gash on their forehead. or unless she got a good ass plastic surgeran to make it go away (which I doubt).

Why is she even getting air time??????????????

She is a bully! She has physically and verbally attacked others. She IS NOT A VICTIM. She does not speak for others regarding domestic violence AND guess what? Karma knocked bitch. I have no doubt she put her hands on Chad and she kept running her f'ing mouth. Now I do oppose any violence against women by men, but she isn't an innocent individual. She is a perpetrator of violence. F**k off bitch. You are a non-mother f**kin factor.

What is with these women? First Rhinna and now this woman saying the same thing - how their abusers "need help". Let these guys take the blame and go to jail. This ghetto ho is the one who needs help because she is delusional!!!!!

I logged in to comment but I just cant. She's absolutely lying. She just set women back 100 years. Im praying for Chad's family especially his children and will not continue to support anything Evelyn is a part of.
