Chad Johnson

I Refuse

To Sign Divorce Papers

9/9/2012 3:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0909-evelyn-lozada-tmz-chad-johnson-2Chad Johnson DESPERATELY wants to stay married to his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada, so much so he's refusing to sign any divorce docs ... this according to sources close to the couple.

As TMZ first reported, Evelyn filed for divorce three days after Chad allegedly head-butted her during an argument. The incident that led to his arrest and Evelyn receiving stitches.

Sources close to Chad tell TMZ ... he won't sign the docs or partake in any divorce proceedings because he doesn't want to get a divorce. We're told Chad still believes he can win Evelyn back ... as evidenced by the fact he recently tattooed her face on his leg.

But Chad's plan isn't exactly bulletproof  -- under Florida law (where Evelyn filed the docs) the divorce can still be finalized with a judge's approval.

Sources tell us Evelyn is hellbent on making this divorce happen and nothing Chad does will get her back. We're told she's ready to move on and rebuild her life.

Calls to both parties' lawyers were not returned.

I didnt think he wanted her for any reason but to have a reality show. I though he would chicken out and not marry her. I guess I was wrong

Get it through your head dude, she got what she wanted out of it... $ and publicity. Her career is being married to ex athletes and starting fights on tv. The tv show got canceled so she's moving on looking for the next tv deal or series of Basketball Jump Offs. Can't make a ho a housewife.

I really get a kick out of reading a lot of these comments that people love to write. But why would celebrities/ lawyers come on to give comments to TMZ? Or any other Web Sites. I guess I'm old fashion. Have much more of these Websites and watch unemployment go down.

Hey Chad! Your signature is not needed in the state of Florida to get divorced. Evelyn proved herself to be smarter than you, Chad. Get over it and move on.

It's true, he just tweeted this approximately 45 minutes ago. I'm done with you Chad. Most of us women love a very confident man, you have really lost all of your sex appeal in my opinion. Too bad Good luck in your desperate quest to win her back, some people have to learn the hard way.
