NEW YORK, USA (AP) — Evelyn Lozada is ending her 41-day-old marriage to Chad Johnson after the football star was arrested for allegedly headbutting her over the weekend.

Danika Berry, a rep for the VH1 reality star, confirmed reports that Lozada filed for divorce on Tuesday.

Earlier, Lozada issued a statement saying Johnson — who was cut by the Miami Dolphins after the Saturday arrest — "needs help". She also said that he was lying when he told police she headbutted him.

The two were wed July 4 after their courtship was detailed on VH1's Basketball Wives. Their nuptials were to be part of the VH1 reality show Ev & Ocho, but it's now been shelved.

The altercation allegedly occurred after Lozada questioned him about a receipt for condoms that she found.
