Evelyn Lozada is officially divorced. The “Basketball Wives” star has split from her former-NFL hubby Chad Johnson after a 41-day marriage.”Evelyn and Mr. Johnson were divorced this morning in an uncontested final hearing. My client is a single woman and looks forward to her future,” a representative for Lozada told Radar.
Late last month, Evelyn detailed the circumstances surrounding her divorce including an explosive fight during which Chad allegedly head-butted the reality star. In a sit down with ABC’s Nightline, Evelyn tearfully said that she “loves him” still but the distance has helped following the assault.
“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. It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love. But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”
Chad may be charged with battery. Police have officially charged him with a first-degree misdemeanor domestic battery. Johnson will face a maximum penalty of one year in jail.
