We really don’t know what to think of the Chad Johnson-Evelyn Lozada dometic violence case. But this much is clear: Either Chad Johnson is not the person he portrays himself as or someone has unleashed a calculated attack on him.
Earlier this week, a woman named Beverly Shiner claimed that she had an affair with Johnson while he was engaged to Lozada. And now, an unnamed “person close to Johnson and Lozada” has come forward claiming that Johnson has been abusing Lozada since the two began dating.
“Chad has been abusive towards Evelyn basically from the beginning of their relationship,” a source close to the couple said.
“Chad doesn’t like Evelyn’s party lifestyle and it made his anger worsen. He hated the way she acted on TV and would often lash out at her for any little thing.”
“Chad and Evelyn’s marriage was volatile in nature and a mistake from the start,” the pal said.
“He [Chad] went off the scale at her once because he was tired of having Evelyn’s friends, like her assistant and stuff, living in his house.”
Things got so bad between Chad and the Basketball Wives star that the insider said friends were genuinely concerned for her safety.
“She told me that Chad threatened to kill her one time and that was really a red flag,” the source said.
“But only a small circle of her friends knew what was going on and it was hard to convince her to get out of the situation.”
These allegations are potentially damaging to both Johnson’s reputation and freedom. If they are true, Johnson deserves everything he gets. But if this is all part of plan to “get” Johnson, well that would just be sad.
