Chad Johnson was a likeable enough guy during his appearances on Basketball Wives while he was dating star Evelyn Lozada, but it’s what happened off camera shortly after they got married that earned him a spot on this list.
About a month after their July wedding, Johnson was arrested for allegedly head-butting Lozada during an argument, one that was reportedly sparked by a receipt she found for a box of condoms. He was arrested, and she promptly filed for divorce a few days later, saying that their union had been “irretrievably broken.” For a good month, he pleaded for forgiveness, and even got Evelyn’s face tattooed on him in efforts to win her back, but the damage had been done, physically and emotionally. The divorce was officially finalized in September.
While it’s good that Chad was apologetic for his actions, domestic abuse is still serious and should never be swept under the rug.
