Chad Johnson defends new tattoo of ex-wife Evelyn Lozada's face
Chad Johnson is finally back on Twitter, after being arrested for allegedly head-butting his now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada during an argument. Yesterday he changed his Twitter avatar to a photo of himself with a fresh new tattoo on his right leg. The crazy thing is the tattoo is of his ex-wife’s face, accompanied by the name “Eve.”
Fans immediately reacted unfavorably to the former Miami Dolphins wide receiver’s new ink job.
When asked why he got a tattoo of his ex-wife’s face on his leg Johnson tweeted, “Divorce? Child please… that’s my WIFE RT @TeeSplash101: I really want to know why @ochocinco tatted Evelyn’s face on his leg post divorce.”
Johnson followed up with that tweet with another one further emphasizing his lack of regret over his new tattoo.
“I dont give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for… RT @CCHx3REH: I thought she filed for divorce tho?” said Johnson.
Lozada has been on an aggressive media tour over the past few days, trying to set the record straight on why she chose to divorce Johnson.
During a recent Nightline interview Lozada said, “I would like for him to tell me he got help and that he’s working on himself,” when asked what she wants to hear from her ex.
She added that, “he loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that…It was his choice, it wasn’t mine.”
The 37-year-old reality star is next set appear on Iyanla Vanzant’s new show Iyanla: Fix My Life, which premieres September 15 on OWN. During a preview clip for Lozada’s episode, she is seen in tears, sobbing about her current image in the media.
“You have been rewarded for being [a] thug among women, it’s gonna cost you!” Vanzant told a tearful Lozada before going on to ask “How did you get to stitches in your forehead, living in a hotel?”
