On the heels of Chad Johnson escaping punishment again for his violent actions toward ex-wife Evelyn Lozada, TMZ has released graphic images of her injuries that will, at the very least, keep him guilty in the court of public opinion.
Ten months after that terrible Saturday night when Ochocinco headbutted his new wife, the gossip site has published photos taken of Evelyn inside the Florida emergency room where she was transported following the attack. The pics were taken by Davie Police who responded to Evelyn’s 91 call. According to officers, the forehead laceration measured 3 inches.
It’s not clear why these images are being released now or who in fact released them, but I can’t help but feel like this is Chris Brown and Rihanna all over again. It wasn’t until people saw the damage that had been done to Rihanna’s face following her 2009 attack, that the public really understood the horror of what was done to her. And though we saw a covered-up gash on Evelyn’s face when she began her media rounds following this domestic incident last August, these pictures, I’m sure, don’t even tell the half of the pain and humiliation she experienced that night. Just thinking about the amount of force it would take to leave scars that deep and wide is disturbing.
So far, neither Chad nor Evelyn have responded to the release of these images. Let’s hope at the very least this serves as a warning for women looking to involve themselves with volatile men like Chad Johnson. You can see more images on TMZ.com.
