Chad Johnson, Evelyn Lozada Divorced
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Johnson's divorce is final from reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, a month after his arrest on a domestic battery charge.
Johnson's attorney, Adam Swickle, confirmed on Wednesday that the couple who wed on July 4 are now divorced.
Johnson was competing for a roster spot on the Miami Dolphins when Lozada accused him of head-butting her during an argument and filed for divorce. The Dolphins promptly cut the 34-year-old Johnson, who is still not on an NFL roster after stellar seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and a not-so-great year with the New England Patriots.
In an interview with Showtime's "Inside the NFL" scheduled to air Wednesday, Johnson says he's taking anger management classes.
Swickle said the divorce was governed by a confidential prenuptial agreement.
The receiver has said he legally changed his last name back to Johnson from the playful Ochocinco because of his marriage to Lozada, who stars on TV's "Basketball Wives."
In the interview, he says he takes full responsibility for the altercation.
