In a Nightline interview that aired last night, Evelyn Lozada opened up about her two-month marriage to Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, which ended with his arrest for domestic violence earlier this month.
“It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love,” Evelyn told Amy Robach. “But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”
Evelyn goes on to say that she afraid of the Miami Dolphins football star, and says, "I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.”
The former Basketball Wives star adds that she does believe Chad loves her, but he "needs help" and he "made a bad choice that destroyed his life."
Evelyn said she hasn't spoken to Chad since the incident, and she never returned to the home they shared.
Stay strong, Evelyn! And good luck!
