After just 41 days of marriage, Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce from Chad Johnson, following his arrest for allegedly head-butting her over the weekend. In the legal documents, she claimed their marriage is ”irretrievably broken.”
Lozada’s lawyer, Michael B. Gilden, said in a statement,
Given the recent events that have taken place, Evelyn has decided to file for divorce and move on with her life.”
Johnson also is speaking out for the first time since the incident and he expressed that he still loves Evelyn.
I am going to let the legal process run its course. I wish Evelyn nothing but the best, I have no negative words to say about her, the only thing I can say is I love her very much.
I will continue to be positive and stay training hard for another opportunity in the NFL. I appreciate all my fans and supporters and if I have disappointed you in any way, you have my sincerest apologies. Once again I will continue to stay positive and appreciate all the support during this tough period in my life.”
In the court papers filed on Tuesday, Lozada says the two had a premarital agreement, but asks that Johnson pay for her attorney fees associated with the divorce.
