Evelyn Lozada is ending her marriage to former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. Lozada filed for divorce Tuesday according to her representative Danika Berry, ending the couple's 41-day marriage.

Johnson was arrested for domestic violence on Saturday night after he allegedly headbutted Lozada following an argument. The altercation began after Lozada allegedly found a receipt for a box of condoms.

Johnson and Lozada were set to star in a VH1 reality show called "Ev & Ocho" that followed the couple, but that project has now been shelved following Johnson's arrest.

Johnson was released on bail Sunday afternoon and was released by the Dolphins shortly thereafter following a meeting with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin.
