After six weeks of marriage, “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce from her husband Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson following a domestic violence incident this past weekend, her rep has confirmed to AlwaysAList.com.
The 36-year-old reality show star filed for divorce today, Tuesday Aug. 14 in Florida and she cited her marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
On Saturday, Johnson was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking his wife. The NFL wide receiver supposedly head-butted Lozada and caused multiple lacerations to the forehead after the couple had an argument over a receipt for condoms she found in their car.
Divorce documents confirm that the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place. The divorce should not be a complicated one since the pair only wed on July 4 during a ceremony in St. Maarten.
Their road to the alter and the wedding ceremony was documented for a “Basketball Wives” spin-off called “Ev and Ocho,” which VH1 announced yesterday it was pulling from the schedule because of the domestic situation.
