Although Evelyn Lozada is no longer dating Carl Crawford, the “Basketball Wives” star took to Instagram to address their past relationship following news of his domestic violence arrest and rumors suggesting he abused her.

Last week, news broke that the former MLB player was arrested for felony domestic violence in Texas, where he allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint while her 1-year-old daughter was in the apartment.

Although Evelyn was initially mum about the incident, she decided to address her ex-fiancé’s arrest after she learned there were reports alleging that he was violent during their relationship. Evelyn, who shares a son with Carl, revealed that she wanted to speak on the matter for her son’s sake.

Evelyn also shared a lengthy caption titled “My Truth” under the video. “With all that’s going on in the world right now, I hate that I have to even address this... I will always be empathetic to ANYONE who has experienced any form of domestic violence and in NO WAY would I ever undermine anyone else’s alleged experience,” she wrote in the IG post.

“That is their story to tell. However, after numerous calls, tweets, DM’s and bloggers claiming that I’ve said that my ex-fiancé, Carl Crawford, intimidated or physically hurt me, I felt I had to speak regarding my relationship with Carl. The Carl I’m hearing about lately is not the Carl I personally know.”

Although Carl was charged with domestic violence, Evelyn revealed she never saw that side of the athlete while they were dating. “During our 4 Year engagement & while co-parenting our son, Carl has never been violent or threatening. We have a positive relationship,” she explained.

“Again, I take the time to speak on this for my son, who I never want to grow up and feel as if his father hurt his mother in any way. I also do this because I won’t allow bloggers looking for clicks to manipulate MY story and take away from those women who need their true stories heard.”

Following Carl’s arrest, his lawyer Rusty Hardin told TMZ that his client was innocent. “We strongly deny the charges and the conduct he is alleged to have engaged in. He would never hurt a woman. He has no criminal history,” he said in a statement.
