Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson is continuing his steady descent into a life full of struggle. After tattooing his wife, Evelyn Lozada’s, face on his calf, then tweeting to the Miami Dolphins that’s he will take his job back if they’ll have him, he has reached a new level of utter confusion.
Lozada filed for divorce soon after she was taken to the hospital for the wound she received after he allegedly head-butted her, but Johnson isn’t trying to hear that noise. “Divorce? Child please…that’s my WIFE,” he tweeted to someone asking why he would tattoo the Basketball Wives star’s face on his body, if they’re headed for divorce. When another tweeter brought Lozada’s actual filing to his attention, he again refused to care. “I don’t give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for…”
While her husband is busy tweeting up a storm, Lozada is taking a different approach in dealing with the ordeal. She appeared on ABC’s Nightline, and tearfully recounted the incident that led to Johnson’s arrest, and explained why she had to end the relationship. “It’s the hardest thing in the world, to walk away from someone that you really love,” she said. “But you walk away because I have to protect myself.”
Johnson has yet to grant his first interview, but from the looks of it he may be experiencing the stage of grief known as denial.
