Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson's ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, talked about the ending of her marriage on "Basketball Wives."

Lozada and Johnson divorced following a domestic violence incident. In the season five premiere, she spoke with her mother, Sylvia Ferrer, about what it was like to lose her husband and her late brother-in-law in the same week.

"It's just like the timing is crazy," Lozada said. "It's like two of my best friends just gone. Which feels [expletive] up. You know?

"Why is this happening to my life? That's my brother and then he dies right after the incident with me and Chad. Words can't even explain how dark I felt -- like, this can't be my life."

It has been nearly a year since the incident, when Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada after she confronted him about a receipt for a box of condoms she found in his car. The couple had been married just three weeks.

She was treated for a laceration later that week. The same week, her brother in law Anthony Ochoa died after a long battle with cancer.

Ochoa was married to Lozada's sister, Sylvia. He walked her down the aisle when she wed Johnson in 2012.
