First Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian – now this.
Chad Johnson‘s divorce from reality TV star Evelyn Lozada was finalized Wednesday, a little more than a month after his arrest on a domestic battery charge, the Associated Press. This according to his lawyer.
Johnson was competing for a roster spot on the Miami Dolphins when Lozada accused him on Aug. 12 of head-butting her during an argument about condoms she found, and she filed for divorce. The Dolphins promptly cut the 34-year-old Johnson, who is still not on an NFL roster after stellar seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and a not-so-great year with the New England Patriots.
In an interview with Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” scheduled to air Wednesday, Johnson, who still faces a misdemeanor battery charge, says he’s taking anger management classes.
“I’m trying to find out how can I channel my anger when I’m in situations to where I would pop off,” he says. “How can I diffuse those situations, trigger points?”
Johnson’s attorney Adam Swickle said the divorce was governed by a confidential prenuptial agreement.
“Being married, being a husband, being a lover, was an honor,” Johnson says in the interview. “And I lost that. And you know that saying … `You never know what you have until it’s gone.’ And now I finally know what they mean. I lost two of the things that really meant the most to me. That someone completed my world, completed me, period. But I just hadn’t made that transition to where I needed to be the best man that I could, or best husband that I could. I didn’t make it all the way, fully.”
