Chad Johnson: I still love Evelyn

Chad Johnson says he still loves Evelyn Lozada – even though the reality star has filed to end their 41-day-old marriage.

Lozada filed for divorce Tuesday after Johnson was arrested for allegedly head-butting her during an argument Saturday. The football star was dropped by the Miami Dolphins the next day.

In a statement on his website – OCNN – Johnson apologized for his action and said he loves her to death. He also said he planned to stay positive and hopes to get signed by another NFL team.

"I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred," Johnson’s statement read. "I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life."

The couple’s July 4th wedding was taped for their VH1 reality show ”Ev & Ocho” -but the network has decided it will no longer air.
