Evelyn Lozada turned up in Barbados this week, reportedly to gather her thoughts after the whirlwind surrounding her August 11 domestic spat with husband Chad Johnson.
Gossip Extra‘s paps on a beach near Georgetown, where the 36-year-old star of VH-1′s Basketball Wives (she was engaged to former Miami Heat star Antoine Walker before hooking up with Johnson) is staying with friends, said she bore no visible marks from the fight.
As Gossip Extra reported first August 13, a neighbor called 911 after finding Lozada cowering near his front door in a suburban neighborhood of Davie.
He told the 911 operator her injuries included a gash to the head that would probably require stitches.
Lozada was treated at the ER and released.
Lozada seemed relaxed throughout her beach day. She arrived wearing a fedora and red loose-fitting pants.
Ex-Miami Dolphins wide receiver Johnson, aka Ochocinco, has been told to stay away from Lozada, at least until his arraignment Sept. 13.
He was cut by the Fins hours after his arrest.
Since then, he’s lost a sponsor. His and Lozada’s next reality show, Ev & Ocho, has been cancelled.
One of Johnson’s properties in Miami Beach is being foreclosed on.
The government of the Caribbean island of St. Martin vowed to force Johnson to give back $90,000 it paid the couple for promotion.
And he could face a year in prison because the Florida domestic violence arrest wasn’t his first.
Lozada, meanwhile, filed for divorce. She cancelled all public appearances.
Her only statement so far has been: “I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility . . . It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
