A few days ago, “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada had the internet buzzing when she was spotted out in public for the first time with her ex-husband Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson.
Well, yesterday, Evelyn felt the need to take out some time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about the public outing.
Lozada posted the photo (above) and this explanation on her website:
I wanted to wish you a happy and safe New Year and take time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about last night. It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control.
I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food. The blogs made last night seem as though, we walked hand and hand into the restaurant announcing a reunion, which wasn’t the case.
I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time. I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now I’m still working on becoming a better person. Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.
I wanted you to hear this from me and only me because I would rather you know the truth, than assume. 🙂
Let’s make tonight a safe and wonderful New Year and many blessings to you and yours for 2013!
Please remember, don’t drink and drive.
Well, there you have it.
