Chad “Ochocino” Johnson is ready to make amends, but he doesn’t want you to feel sorry for him. The former Miami Dolphin has been going through a trying time since he was arrested for allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, resulting in him being fired from the NFL team, and having his reality show canned. He is also facing foreclosure and is being sued for $130,000 by former employee, Jacinth Preston. Johnson reportedly failed to compensate Preston for several services that he provided.
In response to one of his follower’s questioning why he deleted his bio from his Twitter pages he wrote, “I got to start life over and create a new one.”
The 34-year-old also said that he doesn’t’ want sympathy. “Don’t feel bad, my black a– messed up, I made the bed now I gotta lay n it RT.”
Earlier in the month, Johnson offered up a public apology via his website, proclaiming his love for Lozada, who has since filed for divorce. The reality star, who appears on the Vh1 show Basketball Wives, released a statement expressing her “disappointment” in Johnson for not taking responsibility for his actions.
The couple hasn’t seen each other since the incident.
