Chad Johnson FINALLY Files His Divorce Papers, Pleads "Not Guilty" To Battery
Chad Johnson has finally given his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada what she wants...his divorce papers. Despite the fact Evelyn filed a month ago and Chad kept refusing to cooperate, he marched into the courthouse this morning to make it official.
Deets inside, plus his "Not Guilty" plea on that battery charge...
According to reports, Chad has finally filed his own divorce papers, declaring the marriage is irretrievably broken. But Chad also says he and Evelyn had a pre-nup that should be honored. The pre-nup stated that each party would foot their own legal bills in the case of a divorce. And since Evelyn's trying to make Chad pay her legal bills, he wants the pre-nup enforced.
The divorce still isn't final...yet. But reportedly Evelyn is jumping for joy. Chad's been tweeting his fans saying she is not to blame for ruining his life.
As for that battery charge the state attorney's office put on him, Chad entered a plea of not guilty in a Florida court this morning. The L.A. Times reports:
If convicted of misdemeanor battery, Johnson would face a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He could also be ordered to perform community service, probation or anger-management classes.
Meanwhile, Evelyn will appear on "Iyanla: Fix My Life" Saturday night on OWN to give a tearful recount of the failed marriage.
