Evelyn Lozada files for divorce from Chad Johnson




In perhaps the least shocking news since Jean-Claude Van Damme said he thought Kylie Minogue was hot in 1994, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce from disgraced Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. The head-butting was one thing, but the cancellation of their reality show must have been the last straw.

Radar Online says papers were filed at the Broward County Courthouse on Tuesday, ending a marriage that so far has only lasted about six weeks. The couple had been arguing after Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in the car, so Johnson head-butted her as things turned violent. Davie police arrested him for misdemeanor simple domestic battery.

"Given recent events in my client’s life, she has decided to file for divorce and move forward with her life," her attorney told the site.

In case you were wondering, a woman in Boston told the same site they'd been having an affair from January to May (Chad played for the New England Patriots before signing with the Dolphins). He and Evelyn were married July 4, after an on-air courtship on Basketball Wives that was to move on over to the ill-fated show Ev & Ocho. Dating a guy who changed his name to Ochocinco was probably the first clue he wasn't the most stable.
