If Chad Johnson's Evelyn Lozada tattoo was/is an attempt at patching things up, what he may have instead is a permanent reminder of what he lost.
She's not taking him back.
Lozada is adamant that they are over after his arrest on August 11 for domestic battery. "You can't repair this," she told People. "You just can't."
After a nuclear argument set off by a receipt for condoms in their car, Lozada went to the hospital for stitches, and Johnson spent a night in jail.
An upcoming reality show starring the couple, Ev and Ocho, was canceled by VH1, and he was also cut by the Miami Dolphins within two days.
She filed for divorce from the NFL star the following week.
And while Lozada admits that she'll "always have love" for her husband (of just 41 days), she can't see them working things out in the future.
"This is something you should never tolerate," says the Basketball Wives reality star, who hopes to inspire victims of domestic abuse to get help.
"I don't care what the situation is – or who the man is."
