Evelyn Lozada was a guest on “The Real” and opened up about domestic violence.  She says she’s still deeply affected by the incident that happened with her ex-husband Chad Johnson, saying, “It stays with you forever.”

Lozada got very emotional when she opened up about the 2012 incident in which the former NFL star headbutted her during an argument over his infidelity.  She was near tears, and shared this warning with other women, “If it happens once, we know it’s gonna happen again.”

She and Johnson split after the incident, but she said she forgives Chad, who has apologized many times, but says she doesn’t want him to be a part of her life.  He used to tweet about missing her, to no avail, but has since moved on as well.
