Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is on the mend. Well, kind of. The Basketball Wives star recently opened up about finding Mr. Right, having more babies, and her relationship with ex Chad Ochocinco (Johnson). Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
She tells Celebuzz: “I still want to be a mother, I still want to have other children, I still want to get married and have a family. Only this time, instead of me choosing, I am going to have God choose whomever for me.” Well, that might not be such a bad idea, since her last relationship ended so nastily.
Lozada married pro football player Chad Ochocinco (Johnson) back in July of 2012. Things started out peacefully enough, with Chad even changing his last name from Ochocinco to Johnson so Evelyn wouldn’t have to take it as her last name.
However, things began to go downhill fast. Back in August of 2012, just a little over a month after they were married, Chad and Evelyn got into a heated argument about a condom receipt she found in his car, and the fight escalated to the point where Chad was arrested for head butting Evelyn.
The former Miami Dolphins star was released by the team only 24 hours after the story of the head butting incident broke. Evelyn filed for divorce and it was finalized in September. Their marriage lasted 41 days.
While Evelyn says that both she and Chad are in a better place now, they are still not on speaking terms. Of their relationship, she says: “We don’t communicate at all. We are not at that point. Both of us are doing a whole lot of healing and a whole lot of soul searching, and working on ourselves.
I know that I am, and I hear that he is as well. We do still love each other. We were in a tough relationship, at times toxic. It’s still very emotional for both of us.” She said. While Evelyn is still trying to heal, she does say that she is open to the possibility of remarrying in the future, just not anytime soon.
She also admits that she leaned heavily on her daughter, Shaniece during her rough times. It looks like Evelyn is beginning to heal and to focus on herself and her own happiness, and we have to say that is the best thing! We wish both her and Chad lots of luck and happiness in the future.
