Chad Johnson appears to still be in denial.
The former Miami Dolphins player is still wearing his wedding band, recently got estranged wife Evelyn Lozada’s face tattooed on his leg and now he’s giving the reality a star time as to finalizing their divorce.
Chad has been doing everything possible to salvage his marriage after allegedly headbutting Evelyn when the two began arguing over condom receipts found in the couple’s car.
Sources close to Chad tell TMZ … he won’t sign the docs or partake in any divorce proceedings because he doesn’t want to get a divorce. We’re told Chad still believes he can win Evelyn back … as evidenced by the fact he recently tattooed her face on his leg.
But Chad’s plan isn’t exactly bulletproof – under Florida law (where Evelyn filed the docs) the divorce can still be finalized with a judge’s approval.
Sources tell us Evelyn is hellbent on making this divorce happen and nothing Chad does will get her back. We’re told she’s ready to move on and rebuild her life.
Calls to both parties’ lawyers were not returned
While Chad is busy being in denial, Evelyn is currently making media rounds to discuss the headbutting incident. She’s featured in the current issue of People magazine and will appear on Iyanla Fix My Life on Saturday [Sept. 15].
