Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocino) and Evelyn Lozada
Evelyn Lozada is speaking out.
Following Saturday's domestic violence incident involving the Basketball Wives cast member and husband Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco)
, she told Entertainment Tonight
, "I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me."
Johnson was taken into police custody Saturday after he allegedly head-butted Lozada, who was treated for a "pretty good sized" laceration at a nearby hospital, Davie, Fla., police Cpt. Dale Engle told NFL.com
over the weekend.
But the football player originally told authorities it was Lozada who head-butted him during the incident.
"It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles," she said
. "Domestic violence is not okay, and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well."
It has been a difficult week for Lozada, who is also mourning the death of her brother-in-law, Anthony Ochoa, who died Monday after battling cancer.
Ochoa, 43, who was married to Lozada's sister, Sylvia, escorted Lozada down the aisle during her July 4 wedding to Johnson last month.
"Anthony was an amazing husband, father, and brother-in-law. He will be dearly missed," Lozada told TMZ.
Since Johnson's arrest, he has been cut from the Miami Dolphins and the couple's VH1 reality show, Ev and Ocho
, has also been canceled.
