Chad Johnson Won’t Sign Evelyn Lozada’s Divorce Papers

When you tattoo your estranged wife’s face on your leg that’s a pretty clear sign that you’re still trying to patch things up, right? A few days after the NFL player got his new ink work, sources are reporting that he refuses to sign the divorce papers Lozada has presented him with.

According to TMZ, the former Dolphins player is holding out on signing Lozada’s divorce papers because he’s confident that he can win her back, while Lozada remains firm in her decision to move forward. If Johnson continues to hold out, however, a Florida judge can still proceeded with the divorce.

Ev recently detailed the night that brought her to divorcing Chad on Nightline. Evelyn tearfully said that she “loves him” still but the distance has helped following the assault, during which Chad alleged head-butted her. “I would like for him to tell me he got help and that he’s working on himself,” said Evelyn when asked what she wants to hear from her ex. She added that “He loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that…It was his choice, it wasn’t mine.”
