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.

She's ready to move on because she only married him for a publicity anyway. Now she has it & has no need to stay married. Poor girl lost her tv show though. Boo Hoo.

Once you head butted your wife, you knew instantly "love" was over. Sign the papers let her go.

Who the F&$k is Chad Johnson. Every day TMZ does a story on someone I never heard of because I'm not into sports. I come to this site for entertainment news! YOu may as well do a story on Jan Doe and Her husband Boll What. Really, it's bad enough you use filler stories like the Salahi's (who cares how these magots spell their name), stick to entertainer Harvey or lots of us be getting bored.

Evelyn can get out of this marriage easily. She can just say that she was incompetent to make any rational decision when she got married. There for the marriage would be null in void. I'm sure you can get a court to believe that.

Instead of Chad begging for Evelyn to come back he should be thinking of his children and how his buffoonery is affecting them. He and Evelyn both need in-patient therapy away from the public eye.

Good for Evelyn. We all know that he will eventually abuse her again. That's what abusers do, and they escalate their abuse too! Don't ever go back to him Evelyn cause he just needs you to vent his anger on; he doesn't want to give up his power over you.

This babe has such a sexy slut face that if she were your lady you should be doing her 24/7 so she has no energy to bitch and nag and make you hit her.
