In the latest issue of PEOPLE, ”Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada revealed that she was ready to settle down and be a wife and mother when all -ish went left.

She says that she was unloading groceries from the car for a big dinner she was about to make when she found a receipt for condoms.

“I’m not naive.  I didn’t think he was going to be perfect, but three weeks after we got married?  I felt like he was not even trying.”

She says at the point she was done and demanded a divorce….she didn’t want to try to work it out.  And that’s when it happened.  An enraged Chad headbutted her, “I had blood in my eyes.  I was tasting it.”

Interestingly….this wasn’t the first time ”something” like this happened, according to Ev.  The reality chick told the magazine she wouldn’t go into detail because of Chad’s kids, but some other situations  jumped off previously.  She added, “I always knew (to back down) when he got that look in his eye.”  Hmmm…..

She ended by saying she’d always love him but, “I don’t care what the argument is, or who the man is, this should never be tolerated.”

Chad hasn’t responded to the article yet but earlier this week, he posted, “Divorce? Child please … that’s my WIFE.”
