Evelyn Lozada: ‘Chad and I love one another, however we’re still separated’

Chad Johnson Evelyn Johnson Ochocinco Together

Evelyn Lozada took to her personal website to set the record straight after pictures of her and Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson attending dinner surfaced online. Evelyn says that the two are not together, they are friends, and that they’re attending therapy separately to work on their individual issues. Read Evelyn’s full letter below.

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to wish you a happy and safe New Year and take time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about last night.  It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control.

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.  :)

Let’s make tonight a safe and wonderful New Year and many blessings to you and yours for 2013!

Please remember, don’t drink and drive.

Love,

Evelyn
