evelyn lozada*To say Evelyn Lozada, the reality TV star, has been through a lot these past few days would be an understatement.

To put it all in perspective, Evelyn has written a statement about her domestic violence ‘incident’ as she refers to it.

“It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.”

Unfortunately, Evelyn has had to deal with even more bad news. Her brother-in-law, Anthony Ochoa, died Monday after battling cancer.

Ochoa, 43, who was married to Lozada’s sister, Sylvia, escorted Lozada down the aisle during her July 4 wedding to Johnson last month.

“Anthony was an amazing husband, father, and brother-in-law. He will be dearly missed,” said Lozada
