After Evelyn Lozada’s very public split with her ex-husband, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, the Basketball Wives star has remained relatively quiet about the alleged abuse, but now she’s speaking out in a whole new way.

When Hip Hollywood asked Evelyn if she has any advice for her friend Rihanna —  who has been publicly chastised for getting back together with her ex, Chris Brown, after he beat her — she gave more than her two cents.

“Rihanna’s personal business is her personal business, but at the same time, she and Chris were broken up for two years. She was doing her thing and he was doing whatever he was doing; I’m sure he got help in the midst of that. So to each his own. I wish her the best,” she dished.

But at the same time, Evelyn wanted to drive home that people shouldn’t judge without personally knowing what’s going on in a relationship, and even then, it’s up to the people involved to work it out — just like she has remained friends with her ex, Chad.

“You never know what’s going on behind closed doors — we’re all quick to judge and assume, and you just never know,” she pointed out. “She’s a great person, I love her for just not caring about what the world thinks and just doing her. And I wish her the best, whether she’s with Chris or not.”
