Evelyn Lozada

Reunites w/ Chad Johnson

to Drop Restraining Order

EXCLUSIVE

Evelyn Lozada came face to face with her ex-husband Chad Johnson this morning -- the first time since his domestic violence arrest back in August -- and offered the NFL star a HUGE olive branch.

Evelyn and Chad both appeared in a Florida courtroom ... where Evelyn asked the judge to drop the restraining order that was placed against him after she told police he headbutted her during an argument.

After the incident, Evelyn quickly filed for divorce from Chad -- after just one month of marriage.
 
Chad has been on a tour of contrition on TV and the Internet ever since ... apologizing left and right ... and admitting he has an anger problem. Chad also revealed that he's getting professional help to deal with his rage issues.

During the court hearing, the judge asked Evelyn if she had been threatened or coerced into making the request to drop the order ... to which she replied, "No."

The judge also asked if she was afraid of Chad ... and she also replied, "No."

The judge granted Evelyn's request.

Sources connected to Evelyn tell TMZ ... the "Basketball Wives" star isn't sure where the relationship will go, but at the very least, she wants to start talking to him again.

I guess this is a case of she will get what she deserves! Its too bad her brain is like a tricycle in a three car garage because she was in a very strong position to speak up for true domestic violence victims with no voice. I have not one drop of pity for her the next time!

This is what Marvin meant when he said BB is toxic. They don't know what healthy relationships, be they Amorous or just between real friends, are. They keep repeating the same toxic behavior in their lives. But they're all 40 something, too set in their ways to change. I hope she is safe, but I won't be contributing to their ratings this season.

Why is she dressing like a street walker in court? Have a little respect for the court, especially if you are asking them to enter an order in your favor.

Wear a suit coat, something with sleeves...and for god's sake, it doesn't need to be skin tight.

This is a court, not the Boulevard.

I'm scratching my head trying to figure out if it's about the MONEY or the WEINER? Maybe both?

HeyYou    

This woman is the definition of a statistic. She is a media whore, has zero formal education & at age 37 the ONLY thing she has to show for her life is a teenage daughter who is already a video hoe with fake breasts because her horrible mother didn't instill enough confidence in her daughter to not need fake body parts. She is an ATROCIOUS example of a woman, I am ashamed to be a woman alongside of her and any women who repeatedly & willingly accepts cheating & violence deserves everything that happens to her. What a shameful pig I am disgusted. Pathetic z-list media who're famous for her ghetto intelligence saying things like "I seen" & hitting people. You are the definition of a coward & a loser, Evelyn Lozada. And if you want to be the next Jane Fonda (lmao) do something about those fat, untoned dough arms in that dress. SAD "woman".

HeyYou    

And what kind of piece of sh*t gets hit and does basically NOTHING to speak out against domestic violence?? Where are your seminars? Your school visits? Your meeting attendances? Your tweets? Your interviews that have to do with OTHERS? Your visits to battered women's shelters? YOU ARE A CLASSLESS, PATHETIC, MANIPULATIVE PIECE OF TRASH.

It's about money. She needs some "drama" for her role on Basketball Wives. Their drama together increases her paycheck.

She must out of money. If they get back together, it would be a big payday for her, because when she "divorces" him again, the criminal charge will show the history of his "issues" and she will request even more cash. If I were him, make nice, but stay far away and never be intimate again with this dream killer, not worth it. BTW, she knew and accepted that he was seeing other women.
