“Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada is speaking out for the first time since her football player husband, Chad Johnson, was arrested for domestic violence against her. She released a statement through VH1 to address the situation:

It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, 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. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.

Lozada may have the support of her family, friends, and fans, but not everyone is sympathetic.
