Fallen NFL star Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson has come to terms with reality and is reportedly going forward with estranged wife Evelyn Lozada's filing for divorce following their pubilcized dispute last month.
While details are still gathering, Ocho is willing to succumb to the divorce.
Chad Johnson has plead not guilty to a battery charge in the alleged domestic violence incident with his wife Evelyn Lozada, but the former Miami Dolphins player has also finally granted her a divorce. Lozada was quick to present Johnson with papers following their clash, but he has been resistant until now. The divorce isn't final yet, but he has reportedly agreed to break their bond, while pushing to keep the terms of their pre-nup valid. The pre-nup states that each party will be responsible for paying their own legal bills. (Rapfix)
