Evelyn Lozada Chad Johnson divorce: Wife of ex-Dolphin player ending marriage after 41 days

NEW YORK (AP) -- Evelyn Lozada is ending her 41-day-old marriage to Chad Johnson after the football star was arrested for allegedly head-butting her over the weekend.

Danika Berry, a rep for the VH1 reality star, confirmed reports that Lozada filed for divorce on Tuesday.

Earlier, Lozada issued a statement saying Johnson -- who was cut by the Miami Dolphins after the Saturday arrest -- "needs help." She also said that he was lying when he told police she head-butted him.

The two were wed July 4 after their courtship was detailed on VH1's "Basketball Wives." Their nuptials were to be part of the VH1 reality show "Ev & Ocho," but it's now been shelved.

The altercation allegedly occurred after Lozada questioned him about a receipt for condoms that she found.
