It’s been 3 weeks since Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was arrested for allegedly head-butting his estranged wife, Evelyn Lozada. Reportedly, the incident occurred after Eve confronted the NFL star over a receipt for condoms that she found in their car. Within a few days of the altercation that left her with lacerations on her head, the Basketball Wives star filed for divorce after only 41 days of marriage. Since then, Eve has kept a low profile, but last night on ABC’s Nightline, the world got to hear for the first time her version of what happened that night and how she’s been feeling since. Check out highlights from the interview below:

ON WHAT HAPPENED WHEN SHE CONFRONTED CHAD WITH CHEATING ALLEGATIONS AND THREATENED TO LEAVE HIM:

“…the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me. I felt blood coming down my face… and I looked at him and I said, ‘You just head-butted me?’ And it just — everything just felt if it was in slow motion.”

ON DECIDING TO WALK AWAY FROM THE MARRIAGE:

“It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love. But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”

ON THE INCIDENT’S AFTERMATH:

“I believe he loves me. I believe he needs to get help. He’s a good guy that made a bad choice. He loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that.”
