MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Chad Johnson and his wife Evelyn Lozada have broken the marriage-to-divorce record set by Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.
Lozada has filed for divorce from Johnson after just 6 weeks of divorce following an argument over a box of condoms in a smart car between the couple allegedly ended with Johnson headbutting Lozada.
For the first time since the arrest, Lozada commented on it in a statement released to the media Tuesday.
“I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles,” wrote Lozada. “Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
Johnson told police the couple ‘bumped heads’ during an argument in front of their Davie home when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in his car. Johnson claims the head-butt was an accident.
Over the weekend Johnson was released from the jail on bond and ordered to stay away from his wife.
Late Tuesday, Johnson released this statement through his website:
“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred. I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”
