‘Basketball Wives’: Is Evelyn Lozada divorce being held up?

Mrs. Carter: The drama is not over yet.

We already know that “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada is hoping to do whatever she can to end her marriage with NFL star Chad Johnson following his domestic violence arrest last month, and she has even stated publicly that she has no intentions whatsoever to be with him again. Even though we have heard her say in a televised interview already that there are still feelings there, this alone is not apparently enough to reignite a passion that was once there in the past.

Unfortunately for her, this alone is not enough to get Johnson to give up on the marriage yet to the point of wanting to actually sign the divorce papers just yet. According to a new report via TMZ, Johnson is reportedly reluctant to sign off on the divorce yet out of a hope that the two will end up getting back together. The bad news for Chad? Even if this is the move that he wants to make, there is no guarantee that this is going to work for very long. According to a provision in Florida’s law, a judge canĀ finalizeĀ the divorce even without Chad’s approval.

With this move, Johnson may just be trying everything he can to earn one part of his life back after watching so much of it fall apart already. He has already been released from his NFL team in the Miami Dolphins, and there is no guarantee that he is going to find another job this season. Meanwhile, Chad’s reality spin-off “Ev & Ocho” has already been canceled by VH1, and that is without a single episode airing.

Johnson has yet to talk about this report … but what do you think about the claims here? We want to hear your thoughts with a comment below, and you can check out more comments from Evelyn about the incident over at this link.
