Evelyn Lozada reunites with Chad Johnson and drops restraining order
It’s been months since Evelyn Lozada has seen her ex-husband, Chad Johnson, whom she placed a restraining order against after he violently attacked her in August, just a little over a month after their high-profile wedding. In recent weeks, the two have both spoken candidly about each other and even shared not-so-secret messages. And now, it seems that the former couple may soon be on the mend as they recently reunited in court.
According to TMZ, Johnson and Lozada reunited in a Florida court on Dec. 17, as Lozada asked a judge to lift the restraining order that she placed on Johnson after he head-butted her during an argument about his infidelity.
During the court hearing, the judge asked Lozada if she’d been threatened or coerced into lifting the restraining order, but she replied, “No.”
Since their divorce, Johnson has publicly apologized on several occasions and admitted that he has a problem with his temper and his ability to be faithful. Johnson also revealed that he is in counseling to help him deal with his anger problems.
In the court hearing, the judge also asked Lozada if she’s afraid of Johnson and she replied, “no.”
Afterward, the judge granted Lozada’s request to lift the restraining order. Sources say that Lozada is unsure of what’s next for her and Johnson, but at least now they can begin communicating again.
Well, it looks like Lozada is on the road to forgiving Johnson and moving on with her life, if not totally reconciling and getting back with him. We’ll just have to wait and see about that. But she’s not the only star that’s done so. Check out some other stars who forgave their abusers below. –nicholas robinson
