NEW YORK (AP) - Evelyn Lozada is ending her 41-day-old marriage to Chad Johnson after the football star was arrested for allegedly head-butting 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 head-butted 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.
