Chad Johnson

Files Divorce Docs ...

Admits Marriage Is Dead

Chad Johnson has finally accepted the fact that his marriage to Evelyn Lozada is over ... and has filed divorce docs in which he admits the union is "irretrievably broken" ... TMZ has learned.

Johnson filed the papers yesterday in a Florida court ... in response to the docs Evelyn filed back on August 14. In his papers, Chad admits the two have a prenup that he believes should be enforced -- especially the part about who pays for the lawyers.

According to the docs, Johnson wants a judge to BLOCK Evelyn's request that Chad foot the bill for her legal fees ... citing a provision in the prenup in which the two sides agreed to pay their own way if they were to split up.

The divorce has not been finalized yet ... but at this point, it's only a matter of time ... and sources close to Evelyn tell us she's "ecstatic" and ready to move on.

Evelyn and Chad were married back in July ... but the honeymoon ended a month later, when Chad allegedly headbutted Evelyn during a heated argument over a condom receipt she found in his car.

Normally, I'd say to stick to the prenup, but when the divorce is because one party was assaulted by the other, the victim shouldn't have to pay to escape.

Funny how he is accepting it now that he has been officially charged with battery. I wonder if thats why he was trying to reconcile so she would drop the charges. He shoulda thought about that before he ochocinco'd her ass. coul

"Chad Johnson has finally accepted the fact that his marriage to Evelyn Lozada is over"...
Hmmm...More like "Chad Johnson has finally accepted the fact that his marriage to Evelyn Lozada was as much a sham as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' was, and true love never entered the picture."
Case solved.
Next!
