The 11 Most Controversial Sports Divorces Of All Time

Chad Johnson’s wife, Evelyn Lozada, filed for divorce on Tuesday after a domestic dispute between the two ended with Johnson’s arrest. Lozada told police that Johnson headbutted her, and while the case is still being investigated, they’re splitting up after just 41 days of marriage.

The incident has been incredibly tough on Johnson, who has had no off-the-field conduct issues his entire career. Despite this, he was cut from the Miami Dolphins as a result of the fiasco.

Johnson’s not the first athlete to find himself in an ugly divorce. And, because the world of pro sports produces big egos, big paychecks, and sometimes-messy off-the-field relationships, he certainly won’t be the last.

Here are 11 of the most controversial sports splits of all time.
