FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Johnson’s divorce is final from reality TV star Evelyn Lozada. It comes a month after his arrest on a domestic battery charge.

Johnson attorney Adam Swickle confirmed the information Wednesday. The couple wed on July 4.

The receiver says he legally changed his last name back to Johnson from the playful Ochocinco because of his marriage to Lozada. Johnson was battling for a roster spot on the Miami Dolphins when Lozada accused him of head-butting her during an argument and filed for divorce.

The Dolphins promptly cut Johnson, who is still not an NFL roster after stellar seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and a not-so-great year with the New England Patriots.

Swickle said the divorce was governed by a confidential prenuptial agreement.

Lozada stars on TV’s “Basketball Wives.”
