“3 Seconds Of Anger Cost Me A Lifetimes Worth Of Work”: Chad Johnson Says Ugly Fight With Evelyn Lozada Ruined His Career
If you’ll recall, in 2012, Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada had something of a whirlwind romance, and a majority of it was featured on Basketball Wives. But things went left after they tied the knot. If you’ll recall, on August 11, less than a month after the couple tied the knot (July 4), Johnson was arrested in Florida. He was charged with domestic battery for headbutting Lozada following a heated argument over a receipt for condoms that she found in his car. She filed for divorce (which was finalized in September of 2012), and Johnson received a year of probation after pleading no contest to his misdemeanor battery charge.
The day after Johnson was arrested, he was released from the Miami Dolphins, and things went downhill from there. He has taken jobs here and there, including being an analyst for CBS’ Fantasy Football coverage, but after playing in the NFL for more than 10 years, his career was damn near over.
Thinking back on that dark time (FYI, he’s reportedly playing ball in Canada now), Johnson hit fans with a “Throwback Thursday” where he recounted how the moment he lost his cool changed his life forever. He posted the following picture of himself in court, and continued:
Speaking earlier this year, Johnson said that he still had love for his ex-wife, despite all they had been through: “Yeah, love don’t go nowhere like that. I will always love her, matter fact I love every goddamn body to an extent, it ain’t going nowhere.”
His most recent Twitter comments come right after Lozada’s former fiancé, Antoine Walker, spoke about her leaving him high and dry when his money ran out. Doesn’t it seem like it’s always when a woman moves on that her exes come out the basement…?
