Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson is claiming that he only lost his temper with his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada for three seconds - and it cost him his entire career.

The tweet was a response to a fan who asked him how he manages to stay positive.

 "Sis, i lost my temper for 3 seconds years ago & it cost me a lifetimes worth of work in less than 24hrs, it's REALLY easy to be positive now after getting it all back," he responded.

Chad was arrested back in August 2012 after he allegedly head-butted Evelyn during a heated exchange. Evelyn subsequently filed for divorce which was just over a month after they wed. Chad pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to 12 months probation.

Evelyn's former Basketball Wives costar Tami Roman accused Evelyn on the show of lying about the incident, but Evelyn maintains that she has been truthful. And she has since become an advocate for survivors of domestic abuse.
