Anyone up in arms over Evelyn Lozada making peace with Chad Johnson should pump their brakes, because they're not getting back together.
So she says.
Photos of the couple attending an event in Miami hit the 'Net earlier in the week, prompting Lozada to go online to explain that she's only friends with Johnson and was showing platonic support.
From her blog:
“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. ”
The two split over the summer after Johnson was arrested for attacking Lozada during an argument. He was arrested and charged with battery for the crime.
Last month, a judge lifted the protective order barring Johnson from being anywhere near his former wife.
