Chad Johnson

MARRIAGE OVER

Evelyn Files for Divorce

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).

Why is Evelyn so mad? This is coming from the most violent woman on Basketball Wives who has threatened almost everyone on the show.I find it very hard to believe that she didn't attack her husband at all and all she did was yell at him. I'm sorry but I don't feel sorry for her at all!

TMZ why isn't the HEADLINE: "EVILYN SMACKS THE CRAP OUT OF NUMEROUS FEMALE CASTMATES" within the last 6 months. No your headline reads Chad had a "histroy of domesitc violence while still going thru puberity". Why do you think that is ok?

Another "reality tv" phony marriage that went out of control. It would be on the air as their featured series if they had only had cameras there to film the fight ... ratings gold! Sad.

Evelyn is pathetic! She lacks integrity and she is pure disgusting. She entered a marriage for the wrong reason and for that, she gets NO respect from me. She is foul. No sympathy! Very hard to feel bad for her with her because of her violent behavior on Basketball Wives.

He should just pack it in and go become a high school gym coach. He's done.

Need we forget K.K. and the 72 hour marriage, petitions, amongst other ridiculousness. This isn't the end for her. K.K. is on a beach showing you her behind and making millions after all the hoopla w/her. You ain't going no where she won't take you.

YES!!! Good for her! One time is too many I'm glad she is divorcing his ass! Once a cheater always a cheater. He never had any intention on changing his ways anyway. Smart woman for divorcing now rather than later or if she would make it to later. Domestic violence is nothing to play around with. Take it serious the FIRST TIME!
