The official news comes days after Johnson filed his own divorce papers.
Chad Johnson and Eveyln Lozada are no longer married. According to TMZ, a Florida judge made their divorce official early this morning.
The speedy divorce comes just days after Lozada appeared on the recording breaking debut episode of Iyanla Fix My Life on OWN and a mere month since Lozada initially filed for divorce.
Their marriage came to an abrupt end in August after Johnson and his then wife of six weeks engaged in an altercation. The two reportedly began to argue about a box of condoms Lozada found in Johnson’s car. Johnson allegedly headbutted Lozada sending her to the emergency room. The couple lost their VH1 reality show deal and Johnson was fired from the Miami Dolphins in the days that followed. He was eventually charged with misdemeanor battery.
As the fall out continued to unfold, Johnson refused to sign Lozada’s divorce agreement and even tattooed her face to his leg in what seemed to be a last minute effort to get her back.
Johnson appeared to give up hope this week as he filed his own divorce papers, citing his marriage as “irretrievably broken.” The couple had a prenup in place.
