EVELYN Lozada is divorcing Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco) following a domestic dispute.
The pair have been married jut 41 days.
Lozada was allegedly head-butted by the former Miami Dolphins player. She filed for divorce in Florida on Tuesday, claiming her marriage is “irretrievably broken,” People magazine reports.
Johnson, 34, was arrested Saturday night, on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred. I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death,” Johnson said in a statement posted to his website Tuesday.
“I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”
“It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles,” Lozada said in a statement a few hours before filing for divorce. “Domestic violence is not okay, and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
Chad and Evelyn’s reality show, Ev and Ocho, was just canceled by VH1.
