The past few weeks have been pretty tumultuous for NFL veteran Chad Johnson. On August 11th, Johnson was arrested for domestic battery after head-butting his wife Evelyn Lozada following a heated argument while they were parked in a vehicle in Davie, Florida.
Lozada, a star on VH1’s “Basketball Wives” series, would file for divorce three days later and shortly thereafter Johnson was cut from the Miami Dolphins while also seeing a proposed reality show titled “Ocho and Eve” starring him and Evelyn cancelled by VH1 before it even had a chance to air.
With his world seeming to cave in, Johnson is fighting back, however.
As evidenced in a recent video post on Bossip.com on Wednesday, Johnson is preparing for what he hopes to be a monumental comeback, as he is deadest on returning to the NFL and also regaining the trust of Lozada.
“I messed up,” Johnson admitted while taking a break from a recent training session. “I’ve got to suffer the consequences. I made my bed, I’ve got to lay in it. I’ve got to start all over.”
Johnson’s regimen saw him working out vigorously on the beach, going through various cardio and strength drills while later engaging in some mitt work at a boxing gym. What was also evident was a large tattoo that Johnson had placed on his leg depicting Lozada.
Obviously taken aback by everything he has lost, a slightly bemused Johnson isn’t overlooking the damage that has been done.
“I so f*cked everything up,” Johnson stated. “How did I even get to this part? Somewhere along the way I lost focus. I lost two things that I love because of my immature actions. I’m going to get both of those back one step at a time.”
