Anyone who ever said that B-list quote unquote actresses and athlete are a good mix clearly has not been paying attention over the past few years.
Following charges of an alleged head butt that led to his almost instant release from the Miami Dolphins, it appears as if the incident will cost Johnson his job and his marriage.
Evelyn Lozada, who has only been Mrs. Johnson for 41 days, has filed for divorce from the controversial wide receiver.
“Given the recent events that have taken place, Evelyn has decided to file for divorce and move on with her life,” Lozada’s lawyer, Michael B. Gilden, told the TV show “The Insider” in a statement.
Wow. 41 days. I thought that Kim Kardashian filing for divorce from Kris Humphries after 72 days was pretty fast. Of course, Humphries was never accused of head butting Kardashian.
Probably because he would have had to have knelt down in order to do so.
All joking aside, because at the heart of all of this is a story and issue undeserving of any humor, Lozada has said that needs to move on following what she said happened on Saturday night. While Johnson has not really said much more than it was actually Lozada who head butted him, he wishes her the best.
“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred,” Johnson released in a statement. “I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”
Lozada, however, is not exactly saying similar things in regards to her future ex-husband.
“I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles,” Lozada said in a statement of her own on Tuesday. “Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
In a situation like this, we can take two things out of it in the end.
First, there are no winners. Only losers. Johnson loses. Lozada loses. The Dolphins lose. The NFL loses. As does HBO and Hard Knocks, after the next couple of episodes, of course.
And secondly, this is one time that the cameras from Hard Knocks were not around that it would have been very beneficial. It would have told us for certain who head butted who, and could have led to a more resolute conclusion to the situation.
