In an interview with with ABC’s Nightline set to air tonight, Evelyn Lozada says that she still loves husband Chad Johnson, despite the fact that he assaulted her. She called his actions ”a bad choice that destroyed his life.”
Lozada also says that she can’t see herself talking to him or seeing him any time in the foreseeable future.
Johnson, of course, was arrested a few weeks ago for head-butting Lozada in the face after she found a receipt for a box of condoms that he allegedly purchased.
