Evelyn Lozada Reportedly Filing For Divorce From Chad Johnson After 6 Weeks of Marriage
After just six weeks of marriage Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is filing for divorce from NFL star Chad Johnson, following a highly publicized incident of domestic violence from this past weekend.
Lozada claims the couple’s marriage is “irretrievably broken,” according to TMZ.
According to reports, the couple does have a prenuptial agreement but the details of said document are currently unknown. In a statement released today by Lozada she said, “I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me.”
“It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well,” she added.
NBC Sports reports that this is not the first incident of violence against women in Johnson’s past. He was convicted of domestic battery in 2000.
The alleged physical altercation between the couple has cost them a heavily promoted reality series on VHI and Johnson his contract with the Miami Dolphins.
Now it appears their marriage will be yet another casualty of the conflict.
