Evelyn Lozada, 37-year-old "Basketball Wives" star and author, recently dispelled rumors that she has reconciled with ex-husband Chad Johnson while maintaining that God was in control of her situation.
Although Lozada and 34-year-old free agent NFL player Chad Johnson were recently photographed hand-in-hand having a dinner with the latter's family at Southstreet Restaurant in Miami, Fla., the reality television star said many media outlets have been wrong about the pair's reconciliation. According to Lozada, the photograph did not reflect a reconciliation between her and Johnson, but support that she had for his 14-year-old daughter Jicyra.
"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," Lozada revealed on her personal blog. "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."
While Lozada did not discount the possibilities of a reconciliation in the future, she admitted that she was not rushing to get back with her ex-husband whom she divorced following one month of marriage, infidelities and a public domestic dispute.
"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," Lozada said. "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."
