It takes time to heal old wounds, but the repercussions of the alleged altercation between former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and estranged wife Evelyn Lozada continues to play out in the public.
In his first public interview since the incident, Ochocinco stopped by ESPN’s First Take to discuss what really went down.
“What happened was a mistake–that I’ve continuously apologized for, to the people that I’ve hurt, including my wife–I’ve stated that numerous times….I think me continuing to say sorry, sorta drowns it out,” he said. While he admitted being the one at fault for their split, he said that he deservedly lost everything as a result.
He also discusses his time with the Patriots, getting the ax from the Miami Dolphins and the tragedy involving Chiefs’ Jovan Belcher.
