Evelyn Lozada has filed to divorce Chad Johnson, not even six weeks after they got married. She filed legal documents just moments ago in Florida.

Caiming her marriage is "irretrievably broken," Evelyn was clearly motivated by the fight this weekend that led to her man's domestic violence arrest.

Even before the fight went nuclear - he's accused of head-butting her (listen to the Chad Johnson 911 call here) - the union was on shaky ground.

Lozada allegedly found a receipt for condoms in the duo's car and flew off the handle, resulting in an altercation that landed the football player behind bars.

There was no coming to his defense afterward, either. Instead, Evelyn Lozada ripped him in the media for not taking responsibility for his actions.

According to the divorce documents, the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place. Good thing for Johnson, as he's also out of an NFL job now.

Evelyn and Chad got married in St. Maarten in July 4, with the wedding filmed for their VH1 reality show ... which was canceled before it even aired.

The only person with reason to smile now? Kim Kardashian. Compared to Ev & Ocho, her marriage looks like a long-lasting, non-violent success.

Sayonara, Ev & Ocho. Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada's upcoming reality show has been cancelled by VH1 in the wake of Chad's arrest for domestic violence.

The Basketball Wives spinoff was set to debut September 3.

But now, after Chad was arrested for head-butting Evelyn Lozada, even VH1 proved it has some standards, yanking Ev & Ocho from its schedule immediately.

Hope that text isn't from Chad's side piece.

The network said in a statement Monday: "Due to unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

The show was to follow the couple's relationship from dating to engagement, but after the condom-inspired argument, we'll never get to see the magic.

VH1 billed it as "the journey of a charismatic and passionate couple's every step, as they prepare to walk down the aisle and into each other's hearts forever."

Or into Broward County Jail as it turned out.

Johnson, who changed his surname back from Ochocinco this summer, was also released by the Dolphins already, making him all kinds of unemployed.

Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada apparently argued, on VH1's Basketball Wives, about his propensity for cheating - and whether or not he protects his piece - years before their alleged, violent altercation last weekend.

Basically, she told him that if he's going to cheat, at least have the decency to wrap that thing up first ... an ironic statement considering a condom receipt allegedly led to Chad Johnson heat-butting Evelyn Lozada Saturday.

The NFL All-Star was released by the Miami Dolphins a day after his arrest for domestic violence against Lozada, leaving his career in limbo.

Maybe he should have seen it coming, since Chad, who wed Lozada July 4, postponed the wedding over alleged cheating rumors once before.

She was also well aware of Ocho's wandering eyes ... and other body parts. Evelyn sat the father of four kids (none by her) down for a talk before the big day.

Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco) was arrested last night for domestic violence. The alleged victim was his wife, Basketball Wives' Evelyn Lozada.

The NFL star is accused of head-butting Lozada during an argument.

Police arrived at the scene to find her with lacerations on her forehead; Lozada went to the hospital for treatment. Crazy. So what started the incident?

According to TMZ, the fight started over condoms in Chad's car. Seriously.

Evelyn Lozada apparently found a receipt for them (not sure which brand or what size) in the couple's Maserati and confronted him about it.

An argument broke out and Chad head-butted Evelyn. The football star reportedly told the cops he butted heads with his wife by accident.

Johnson was in custody in Davie, Fla., as of 8:45 p.m. last night and will have to go before a judge before he can be released on bond.

It's possible he could be there until tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.

Lozada married Chad Ochocinco - who changed his named back to Johnson so his wife wouldn't have to take the name Ochocinco - on July 4.

For what it's worth, the couple briefly called off their wedding earlier this year, allegedly amid rumors of his cheating, before reconciling.

UPDATE: Johnson has been released from jail - and released by the Miami Dolphins, who cut the star 24 hours after this story broke.

Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco tied the knot in Miami, Fla., on the Fourth of July as friends, family and of course VH1's cameras looked on.

The reality star, 36, and the NFL player, 34, said their vows for their VH1 show, Eve and Ocho, debuting in September. Yes, that's a real show.

The football star also live tweeted portions of his big day, allowing his 3.5 million Twitter followers to gain access to his pre-ceremony planning.

Once the ceremony wrapped, Ochocinco updated his profile pic to show off an image of his and Evelyn Lozada's wedding rings. Ah, 21st Century romance.

"How many times is Eve gonna change outfits... Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?" Ochocinco jokingly tweeted.

Getting married to the Basketball Wives star on July 4 was in part a calculated move, Chad admits, "so I'd never forget our damn anniversary."

After (mostly) enjoying a two-year engagement and weathering some ups and downs - such as briefly calling off the wedding - the couple is on cloud nine.

Says Evelyn of her new husband:

"We have a true friendship. And he can keep up with my mouth! I'm very verbal, and say what I think and feel. He's the same way. He makes me laugh."

Former NBA star Eric Williams allegedly got Tavia Serena Cannon pregnant while he was still married to Basketball Wives' Jennifer Williams in 2011.

Tavia now wants Eric to pony up the child support ASAP, filing a Complaint for Support in Pennsylvania last week, citing the October 2011 birth.

Cannon says she makes just $300/week babysitting and wants Eric Williams to fork over some cash and medical coverage for their love child, STAT.

Eric and Jennifer Williams

Here's the interesting part. At the time the baby was conceived, Eric was still married to Jennifer Williams, who didn't file for divorce until June.

The Basketball Wives star apparently had NO CLUE about the child until Cannon filed for support; their divorce is still pending in a N.J. court, too.

Williams, who is now dating Al Reynolds, and who has reportedly just been fired from Basketball Wives, surely won't look kindly upon the revelation.

Eric Williams has yet to comment on the child support situation.

A petition boycotting Basketball Wives and its many violent outbursts has garnered major support even as the show is reportedly being turned into a movie.

The creator of the petition, which targets Evelyn Lozada and her bullying ways, writes, "The violence on 'Basketball Wives' is horrible and disgraceful."

"Physical assaults, threats, verbal abuse, and harassment. VH1 is rewarding this behavior by giving Evelyn a spinoff. Don't reward negative behavior."

One rumor going around is that Star Jones is behind the boycott. Why?

  • Star Jones and Al Reynolds
  • Jennifer Williams Pic

Star's ex-husband, Al Reynolds, has been on the show lately, given his relationship with Jennifer Williams, something Jones probably doesn't appreciate.

Her vocal opinion about the show is not positive, but Star denies starting the Basketball Wives boycott campaign or even supporting it with her critiques.

"I was never encouraging anybody to boycott somebody's job," she said.

"That's not what I'm about. It just struck me really, really to the core that young girls were watching his example of women on TV and getting their self image."

Of course, Jones admits that she began talking about the boycott and the VH1 show's negativity on her social media accounts in hopes of fostering discussion.

It's unclear if this played a role in getting three Basketball Wives stars fired.

When it rains, it pours for reality star Jennifer Williams these days.

Not only are reports suggesting Shaunie O'Neal had Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols fired from Basketball Wives, she's about to have her Bentley repossessed after being slapped with an unpaid bill for more than $92,000.

That and she was slapped by Nia Crooks literally. Rough month!

Basketball Wives' Jennifer Williams

The Toyota Motor Credit Corporation in Syosset, N.Y., just filed a lawsuit against Williams, claiming she stopped making payments on her 2006 Bentley.

In 2009. According to the lawsuit, TMCC has made attempts to peacefully repossess the vehicle ... but was unsuccessful. Now it's going the legal route.

TMCC is also demanding Williams pay her full balance: $92,310.

A rep for J-Dub said: "Jennifer hasn't been served documents in reference to this lawsuit. Anything related to community property acquired during the marriage, such as the car, is an issue that is currently being addressed in her divorce proceedings."

Basically ... she's hoping Eric Williams will be on the hook.

Shaunie O'Neal, the former wife of Shaquille O'Neal, denies she played any role in getting three fellow Basketball Wives stars fired. Do you believe her?

O'Neal is adamant that it's not her fault that the cast members were axed and insists she learned the surprising casting news when everyone else did.

Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols are getting the heave-ho.

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast

Basketball Wives: So much drama. So few actual wives.

Sources close to Shaunie, who's also an executive producer on the show, say O'Neal was blindsided and that the production company leaves her in the dark.

O'Neal says she's butted heads with higher-ups over the violent direction the show was headed (brawls, fights, bitchiness) and has been ostracized.

Moreover, Shaunie says in the wake of the firings, she's willing to walk away from the popular series "if it becomes something she no longer believes in."

Try to contain your laughter at that last part.

Somewhere, Dwight Howard flashing a big smile ... and not just because Stan Van Gundy will not be coaching the Orlando Magic next season.

Dwight's baby mama Royce Reed just got fired by Basketball Wives along with Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols, according to a new report.

It's unclear who will replace them, but the trio is set to get pink-slipped any day now as VH1 looks to drop all "dead weight" from the show.

Royce Reed Picture

Royce (pictured) was cut because she isn't allowed to talk about Dwight due to a 2009 court order, blocking her from discussing him in any way.

That's certainly one way to limit her appeal. Some of the other girls on BW also decided to ostracize her, so Royce was 86'd from the cast.

As for the others, producers think Jennifer's too big a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. Kesha? She's just boring.

A rep for VH1 said in response to the rumored casting notes, “We don't comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
