Evelyn Lozada is suing popular gossip website Media Takeout for publishing “defamatory” stories about her cheating on fiance Chad Ochocinco with his footballer friend Terrell Owens, according to Courthouse News Service.
She filed papers in a Miami-Dade County Court over a story posted earlier this month with a headline that read: “Evelyn Lozada from the Basketball Wives was CREEPING … with one of Chad’s BALLER FRIENDS!!!’ (Explosive Details).” The site has not deleted the page, but has deleted the text and replaced it with “As a courtesy to Evelyn, we have removed this article.”
She also claims the website published a “follow-up” article that falsely stated she was “knocked up” and quitting the show “Basketball Wives.”
Considering the story was to have been read by over “250,000 people,” Lozada is suing for having suffered “reputational and professional damage, damage to her business, and severe emotional distress.”
