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.

Jesus Chad what are you thinking? This woman is toxic. Are you going to be happier getting back together her getting pregnant and then really messing you whole life up? She has done a pretty damn good job so far. I knew her ex and he might not have money now but he was one of the coolest most relaxed laid back guys I have ever met. I bet it's because he isn't involved with Ev anymore. I hope you can find the same peace someday. Ev is has already moved onto the next man in line to drive him nuts for publicity and then abuse and dump him too. Be glad she is leaving.

At first I was feeling sorry for Chad, thinking he had married a gold-digger. Now, I'm beginning to think that Evelyn married a crazy man with the belief she could change him. They're both a mess...

If he signs, she gets HALF and payments for the rest of her life. Unless she marries. No wonder he won't sign.
