Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson reflected on his 2012 domestic violence incident with ex Evelyn Lozada on social media after a fan asked him how he managed to stay so positive in his life.

The athlete revealed that his bright outlook comes from bouncing back from the scandal that almost cost him everything.

The football star was arrested in August 2012 after he head butted Evelyn, now 44, during a heated argument.
