Only one version can be true.
The part everyone agrees on is that Evelyn caught Chad cheating and an argument ensued. Lozada told the police he headbutted her, but Chad Johnson told the police something different.
But, he doesn’t want to talk about, here is the reason why.
Asked about the police report, however, Johnson sticks by his story: that his beautiful but hotheaded wife blew up at him after finding out he was cheating, that she filled the tiny Smart Car with her angry screams, and that she head-butted him.
“I never talk about that, you know that? For a reason. Let her tell her side. And my job is to cover the story, no matter what. And that’s what I’ve done, and it’s going to stay that way,” he says.
Is Johnson really suggesting he took the fall for her?
“I’m supposed to,” he says. “She’s the wife. That’s my job. To cover the story. That’s the way I was taught. That’s the way I was raised. If I’m your dad and I know you did something wrong, I don’t have a choice but to cover the story for you, whether you’re right or wrong. So for me, whether right or wrong or indifferent, if that’s who I’ve committed to even though I messed up, I’m covering the story for her no matter what. No matter what. Whether it’s my fault or her fault. Whether she antagonized me. Whether she pushed my buttons. You know what? You’re right. Period.”
Did Chad take the fall to keep Evelyn’s reputation from being dragged through the mud (Evelyn was known for violent outbursts and her temper)?
Only two people know the answer to that.
