As news coverage continues to surround Ray Rice, that elevator video of him knocking out then-fiancée Janay Palmer and the aftermath of it, the conversation about domestic violence also continues.
Evelyn Lozada’s name was brought up in a conversation about women walking away from their abusers on Twitter, and Lozada decided to join in it. She spoke about feeling like part of everything she went through with ex-husband Chad Johnson, including that domestic abuse incident where he headbutted her after she confronted him about buying condoms to cheat, was karma for her bad behavior. All in all, she said that the situation made her a much better person because she realized that she needed to work on herself.
And Lozada has definitely changed from the woman we used to see on “Basketball Wives” back in the day to the mother of a newborn who has traded in bottle and shade-throwing for diapers and a chill life with fiancé Carl Crawford.
She told Life & Style in the past that after her public split from Johnson, she hit rock bottom.
“I had the worst 2012, I thought my life was over. It happened so publicly, and then the passing of my brother-in-law. But that entire incident [with Chad] led me to where I’m at now.
I would say my broken bridge led me to happiness. If I had to do it again, I would because I truly feel complete right now in my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
Lozada told the magazine that Crawford changed her life for the better.
“He came into my life at a perfect time. Everything that happened makes me appreciate him 1,000 times more and he also makes me a better person.”
