Now that everything is out in the open sources from Evelyn Lozada's inner circle reveal Chad Johnson was violent with Eve from the start...
From Radar Online
Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson's arrest onSaturday night for allegedly physically attacking wife Evelyn Lozada is just the tip of the iceberg, as a close pal exclusively reveals a history of physical encounters within the relationship to RadarOnline.com.
"Chad has been abusive towards Evelyn basically from the beginning of their relationship," a source close to the couple said.
"Chad doesn't like Evelyn's party lifestyle and it made his anger worsen. He hated the way she acted on TV and would often lash out at her for any little thing."
"Chad and Evelyn's marriage was volatile in nature and a mistake from the start," the pal said.
"He [Chad] went off the scale at her once because he was tired of having Evelyn's friends, like her assistant and stuff, living in his house."
Things got so bad between Chad and the Basketball Wives star that the insider said friends were genuinely concerned for her safety.
"She told me that Chad threatened to kill her one time and that was really a red flag," the source said.
"But only a small circle of her friends knew what was going on and it was hard to convince her to get out of the situation."
