Last night the internet was set on fire when some photos of Evelyn Lozada and ex-husband Chad Ochocinco were spotted holding hands and attending a dinner together. Before the speculation could get too far out of control (Are they back together? Did she really move back into his house?), Evelyn took to her blog today to discuss the situation and put a few of the rumors to bed. On her website today, in a post labeled “About Last Night,” she wrote:
I wanted to wish you a happy and safe New Year and take time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about last night. It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control.
I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food. The blogs made last night seem as though, we walked hand and hand into the restaurant announcing a reunion, which wasn’t the case.
I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time. I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now I’m still working on becoming a better person. Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.
I wanted you to hear this from me and only me because I would rather you know the truth, than assume.
So there you have it. You can put your speculations aside and enjoy your 2013 knowing that there’s still some love there, but like everyone, they’re works in progress. For now, though, there’s nothing new to report.
