*TMZ is reporting that Chad Johnson has finally filed divorce documents in which he admits his marriage to Evelyn Lozada is “irretrievably broken”


Johnson filed the papers yesterday in a Florida court, responding to the docs Evelyn filed on August 14. In his papers, Chad admits the two have a prenup that he believes should be enforced, particularly the part about who pays for the lawyers.

According to the docs, Johnson wants a judge to block Evelyn’s request that Chad pay for her legal fees, citing a provision in the prenup in which the two sides agreed to pay their own way if they were to split up.

Sources close to Evelyn say she’s “ecstatic” and ready to move on.

Evelyn and Chad were married back in July … but the honeymoon ended a month later, when Chad allegedly headbutted Evelyn during a heated argument over a condom receipt she found in his car.
