After initially refusing to go along with Evelyn Lozada's efforts to divorce him, former NFL star Chad Johnson is finally accepting that his marriage is over.

He, too, has filed paperwork, citing the union as "irretrievably broken."

Johnson filed the papers in a Florida court yesterday, in response to Evelyn Lozada's filing back on August 14, days after he allegedly head-butted her.

In Chad's divorce filing, he notes the the couple has a prenup that he believes should be enforced, especially the part about who pays for the lawyers.

Evelyn has requested that Chad foot the bill for her legal fees, but the prenup states that both of them will pay their own if they were to split, Ocho claims.

The divorce has not been finalized yet, but Evelyn, who gave every indication that she was never going to reconcile and is ready to move on, is thrilled.

Well, as thrilled as one can be after a condom receipt from your cheating spouse results in the end of a 41-day marriage and stitches in your head.

Johnson was charged with battery yesterday in Broward County, Fla. He entered a plea of not guilty this morning, and is currently unemployed.

Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson has pleaded not guilty to the charge of battery stemming from his alleged attack on Evelyn Lozada. He was formally charged yesterday.

Ocho entered a "not guilty" plea in court this morning.

The former NFL star allegedly head-butted his wife of less than six weeks after she found a condom receipt in Chad's car and a nuclear argument broke out.

If convicted, Johnson faces up to a year in jail.

Evelyn has since filed for divorce (though he refuses to sign the papers and just got a new tattoo of Evelyn's face), Chad has been dumped by the Miami Dolphins and both have been released by VH1, which was going to air a reality show about them.

When it rains, it pours.

Chad Johnson has been formally charged with battery following his alleged attack on Evelyn Lozada last month. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.

The former Ochocinco was arrested for domestic violence in Florida after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly got violent and he head-butted his wife.

She filed for divorce days later after less than six weeks of marriage.

Broward County, Fla., officials made the decision to charge Chad today.

Evelyn Lozada claims their marriage had become "irretrievably broken" and has made it clear there will be no reconciling with the former NFL star here.

Chad apparently didn't get the memo, as he's refusing to sign divorce papers, insisting he's still in love with her and telling off his critics on Twitter.

He also got a tattoo of Ev's face on his leg. Her face.

Johnson was also dropped from the Miami Dolphins - on HBO's Hard Knocks no less - following his arrest and is now a free agent. Any NFL takers out there? Hello?

It's not exactly a foolproof plan, but Chad Johnson is determined to make his marriage to Evelyn Lozada last by refusing to sign the divorce papers she filed.

Evelyn filed for divorce just 41 days after they wed and three days after Chad head-butted her (allegedly) during an epic argument over a condom receipt.

The incident led to his arrest for domestic battery and release from the Miami Dolphins; Evelyn received stitches and has made it clear she won't reconcile.

Still, the former Ochocinco will not sign the documents or partake in any divorce proceedings, for the simple reason that he doesn't want to get a divorce.

He thinks he can win her back, as evidenced by him getting a tattoo of Lozada's face on his leg and chastising Twitter fans who questioned that move.

Chad can't necessarily stall this forever, though.

Under Florida law, the divorce can still be finalized with a judge's approval and Evelyn is determined to make the divorce happen, come hell or high water.

The Basketball Wives star says she still loves Chad, but all she wants to do is move on and rebuild her life, and that there's no coming back from this.

Too late to get that ink removed, Ocho?

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."

Safe to say Chad Johnson missed Evelyn Lozada's interview on Nightline.

The Basketball Wives star told ABC she hasn't spoken to her hubs since the "humiliating" incident in which Chad head-butted her, and probably won't again.

“I would like for him to tell me he got help and that he’s working on himself,” said Evelyn, adding that her husband "made a bad choice that destroyed his life."

Ocho, meanwhile, just got a new tattoo of Evelyn's FACE on his leg:

Fans, not surprisingly, were a bit confused as to why Chad would get the tattoo, given the fact that Evelyn filed for divorce after six weeks of marriage.

The former Miami Dolphin was not happy with the Twitter inquiries.

When @TeeSplash101 wrote "I really want to know why @ochocinco tatted Evelyn's face on his leg post divorce," Chad responded "Divorce? Child please... that's my WIFE."

Then, after @CCHx3REH asked "I thought she filed for divorce tho?", Johnson replied "I dont give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for..."

Chad Johnson, everybody. Here's Ev's interview on Nightline:

As if things couldn't get any worse for Chad Johnson, the former NFL star learned this week that he's been dumped in Madden '13 as well as in real life.

Chad, who was cut by the Miami Dolphins after his arrest for domestic battery this month, was unable to find his likeness on the popular video game.

"That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and you have to create yourself," @Ochocinco tweeted to his 3.7 million followers.

The former Ochocinco actually is on the game, just in the free agent pool and not on the Miami roster. Anyone interested in his services? [crickets]

Chad's journey to free agency began with his alleged head-butting of Evelyn Lozada during an epic fight with his wife over a receipt for condoms.

The star of VH1's Basketball Wives has filed for divorce, while the network yanked their spinoff show Ev & Ocho, leaving Chad unemployed.

Plenty of time for Madden '13 at least. Mike Sims-Walker might be better deal at that price, Chad ... smaller cap hit and chance of being arrested.

Chad Johnson mistresses are popping up left and right in the wake of his recent arrest for head-butting Evelyn Lozada and her subsequent divorce filing.

We're not talking Tiger Woods levels here, but it certainly does not appear the NFL star was faithful ... as if the condom receipt hadn't established this.

A Massachusetts woman, Beverly Shiner, already came forward and said she had a heated affair with the former New England Patriots player this year.

She may not have been alone in the Ochocinco side piece arena.

Chad Ocho Cinco

"Chad has been having an affair with another woman from Miami named Bianca Zuluaga for the past year," an insider revealed to Radar Online.

"Chad would mostly spend time with Bianca while Evelyn was out of town on her book tour or filming. They would even meet at David's Café in Miami."

"[David's] is one of his regular hangout joints and they didn't go to any lengths at all to hide the fact that they were there together."

The sexy brunette liked to cryptically brag about it too, allegedly.

Basketball Wives' Evelyn Lozada has not been heard for even once since being allegedly attacked by and filing for divorce from Chad Johnson a week ago.

Considering this is Evelyn Lozada we're talking about, it's noteworthy.

The reality star reportedly skipped out on an appearance at a book exposition, where she was expected to show up alongside RHONJ's Teresa Giudice.

She also nixedsome upcoming speaking arrangements. Wonder why.

The celebrity wife and author reportedly decided to cancel all public appearances after losing her husband (and upcoming reality show) tumultuously.

On August 11, Lozada apparently found a receipt for condoms in her car, which sparked a heated argument with hubby Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson.

The now-unemployed NFL star allegedly headbutted his wife, was arrested for domestic violence, and she filed to divorce Chad Johnson days later.

We'll never know for sure what happened, but the best case scenario still has her living with a serial cheater who head-butted her by mistake.

The worst case? He deliberately head-butted her, then prowled around the area looking for her as she hid out at their neighbor's (see 911 call).

Either way, the marriage was likely doomed from the start, and judging by the swiftness of his release by the Dolphins, Chad's career may be too.

It's been quite a week for Chad Johnson. To recap, the NFL star has been released by:

  1. The Miami Dolphins, who cut Chad on Hard Knocks no less.
  2. VH1, which sacked Ev & Ocho before it even premiered.
  3. Evelyn Lozada, who filed for divorce after 41 days of marriage.

An arrest for domestic violence is never good, but was it the nail in the coffin for the 34-year-old "Ochocinco" and his already declining career?


Being charged with domestic violence for head-butting his wife means a serious legal issue hanging over his head as he searches for a new job.

Will an NFL team actually offer him one?

Clubs are increasingly focused on avoiding any individuals who have personal problems or who are distractions to the team, regardless of their talent.

Johnson's consistently outrageous antics, reality TV career and prolific oversharing on Twitter raised red flags long before last Saturday's events.

Combined with his inability or unwillingness to learn plays in New England last year, it may all be too much for him to overcome going forward.

What do you think? Is Chad's career done?


Were the Dolphins smart to cut him loose?
