Evelyn Lozada has sure come a long way from her start as a Basketball Wives star. The 37-year-old opened up to Radar Online about her divorce from former NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and her future.
After tying the knot in July, the couple separated just 41 days later after Ocho allegedly headbutted Ev during an argument. The former Dolphins receiver was then arrested by Davie, Fla. police and released from jail on $2,500 bond.
While he’s trying to get his career back, Ev seems to be doing just fine. The reality TV star is prepping for the next season of VH1′s hit show and recently released a PETA ad, looking better than ever. Evelyn tells Radar, ”He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom. I also don’t think it would be good for us.”
In a recent interview with ESPN, Ochocinco talks about his side of the scandal, while wearing his wedding ring.
“At some point a conversation needs to take place,” she says about receiving closure. “I would definitely like to sit down and talk to him down the road – I would just really like to get up in his head and ask, ‘Why?’
Evelyn also talks about power in relationships and never depending on men. Read the full interview at Radar Online here. –Desire Thompson
