Last week, baseball star-turned-music executive Carl Crawford was arrested for allegedly choking his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint – an allegation he quickly denied via a statement from his attorney, Rusty Hardin.
As he prepares for the court battle to ensue, his ex-fianceé – ‘Basketball Wives’ star Evelyn Lozada – is coming to his defense to quell rumors that she too suffered from domestic violence at his hands.
See it inside:
The video, uploaded to Lozada’s official Instagram account Monday (June 8), was accompanied with the caption:
“With all that’s going on in the world right now, I hate that I have to even address this… I will always be empathetic to ANYONE who has experienced any form of domestic violence and in NO WAY would I ever undermine anyone else’s alleged experience. That is their story to tell.
However, after numerous calls, tweets, DM’s and bloggers claiming that I’ve said that my ex-fiancé, Carl Crawford, intimidated or physically hurt me, I felt I had to speak regarding my relationship with Carl.
The Carl I’m hearing about lately is not the Carl I personally know. During our 4 Year engagement & while co-parenting our son, Carl has never been violent or threatening. We have a positive relationship.
Again, I take the time to speak on this for my son, who I never want to grow up and feel as if his father hurt his mother in any way.
I also do this because I won’t allow bloggers looking for clicks to manipulate MY story and take away from those women who need their true stories heard. There is NO story here and I have no additional comments.
