Reality star Evelyn Lozada plans to let the no-contact order against ex-husband Chan Johnson expire.
According to TMZ, Lozada simply wants “to move on” and not get a civil restraining order against Johnson if a judge agrees to lift his no-contact order in the next couple of months, once the disgraced NFL star finishes his batterers’ intervention program.
After being arrested on a misdemeanor charge in August for allegedly head-butting Lozada, Johnson pleaded no contest. He was ordered to serve one year probation, in addition to undergoing counseling in a batterers’ intervention program, according to Fox News.
Johnson and Lozada married in July; she filed for divorce last month after she and Johnson argued over a receipt for condoms found in the trunk of their car. According to a police report obtained by TMZ, Johnson grabbed Lozada, head-butted her, and screamed at her: "I don't give a [expletive]! I don't give a [expletive] about my career!" Lozada then "fled on foot to a neighbor's house to get away from Johnson."
The head-butt caused Lozada to need stitches on her forehead."I had blood in my eyes, I was tasting it," the reality star told People magazine.
"I would like for him to tell me that he got help and that he is working on himself, whenever I talk to my sister or my girlfriend, I always say I want the best for him. I really do! And he is a good guy who made a bad choice. He loves football, he is very driven, a great dad," Lozada later told ABC's Amy Robach in a “Nightline” interview.
"All I can say is, 'I'm sorry. I'm human," Johnson said on the season finale of the HBO show "Hard Knocks."
"How did I even get to this point?" he went on to say. "Somewhere along the way I lost focus. I lost something that I love. I lost two things I love because of my immature actions. I'm going to get both of those things back, one step at a time."
