Chad Johnson


Evelyn Files for Divorce

8/14/2012 12:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Johnson
's wife of 6 weeks has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Evelyn Lozada filed legal docs moments ago in Florida, claiming her marriage is "irretrievably broken." 

The trigger for the divorce was the domestic violence incident over the weekend, in which Chad Johnson was arrested after allegedly head-butting her during an argument.

Evelyn claimed she found a receipt for a box of condoms in his car.

According to the divorce docs, the couple had a prenup -- but that won't be a big deal since the marriage was shorter than Kim Kardashian's.

FYI -- Evelyn and Chad JUST got married on July 4th in St. Maarten ... and the whole ceremony was recorded for a VH1 reality show (VH1 has since pulled the plug on that ... for obvious reasons).

If you watch Basketball wives when these two first got together Evelyn Lozada was trying right away to have his babies. She took him to a fertility clinic very early on which I thought was very suspicious. After he agreed to marry her she was no longer die hard about having his babies. I thought this marriage would eventually lead to a divorce where she would try to take him to the BANK. I'm really curious to see if she attempts to get his $. TMZ, any word on a prenup between these 2?

The condom was a clue. The headbutt was a victory.

She is not a dumb chick. She is going to take him for a boat load of cash. Im sure violence wasnt in their prenup. Did VH1 pay for their wedding? Who pays that back?

I've watched footage of Evelyn since this story came out...she's a very violent woman.
Quick tempered, pushy, antagonistic, confrontational, self-righteous and prone to resort to violence to try and control people.
This is a very typical personality of women who get hit by men.
Women who abuse men and get hit back, then play the victim.
Women's shelters are *full* of abusive women who beat on their husbands and finally got hit back.
Don't believe it? Go volunteer in a woman's shelter for 6 months.
You'll see women arguing and physically fighting with each other all over the shelter. Heated screaming arguments and rough physical fights between women in women's shelters is very, very common.
Because most of them are abusers.
Don't like the facts, I don't care, kiss my ass.
Feminism is sexism and it's the direct cause of women like Evelyn who walk around beating on people then getting hit back by a man and then playing the victim and giving public messages about "domestic violence against women" and having a bunch of public idiots take her side.

How can you go with someone for almost two years, get married, have an argument and he head butt you and you file for divorce after 6 weeks. Did he ever show violence towards her before? This entire boyfriend/engagement/marriage might have been a setup by VH1 that backfired.

just my opinion    

and gay people can't get married? this can't be serious...how many bogus straight marriages need to happen before people stop giving a fk about who is allowed to marry. evelyn is a slimey piece of trash and chad is a moron.

I wonder if they will end up on Couples Therapy on VH1?

Well, as unfortunate as it is and DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE, somewhere, Kim Kardashian is breathing a sigh of relief thinking to herself "someone's high-profile marriage lasted less than mine. Yippee!"

She didn't waste any time. He would have made empty gestures of patching things up [to get his ducks in a row] As it stands she'll get her's $$$ before he can blows through it or hide it.

i am curious if either of them got paid from VH1...do they get to keep the money? was the wedding paid for? what about gifts? do they return them?
