Evelyn Lozada to divorce 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. Johnson has been accused of headbutting his wife after the couple allegedly got into a fight over a receipt for condoms that she found.
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 the document are currently unknown. In a statement released today by Lozada 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.
Now it appears their marriage will be yet another casualty of their conflict.
