*It took  Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson three whole weeks to wake up to his new reality: “I messed up.”

Ya think?

He took to Twitter to voice his regrets, but former wife, Evelyn Lozada, does not appear to be moved … at all.

Less than one month ago, the life of Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson looked real different. But since the alleged head-butting incident, everything went downhill. He lost his wife, his job, his reality television show, and was dumped from the Madden 13 lineup – all in a span of 3 days.

And now, it seems that the reality of his fall from grace has finally hit him. Johnson took to Twitter saying, “That awkward moment when you realize you’re not on Madden 13 [an American Football video game] and have to create yourself…I got to start life over and create a new one.” But the 6ft 1″ wide receiver was not looking for any sympathy.

Chad admits that he was the cause of his own problems, “Don’t feel bad, my black ass messed up, I made the bed, now I gotta lay n it,’ he said.

Chad’s recognition of his mistakes holds little sway with estranged wife, Evelyn Lozada, who told TMZ  that she hasn’t spoken a word to the former NFL star since the incident.

As we reported, Evelyn was spotted out in New York City  and when asked if she has had any contact with Chad replied, “No.” Evelyn has filed for divorce from her husband of six weeks claiming her marriage to Johnson is ‘irretrievably broken.’

She was scheduled to appear on “Good Morning America” this week, but the interview was postponed due to Robin Roberts’ medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. The official date of the new interview has not yet been released.
