Is Chad Johnson trying to win back estranged wife Evelyn Lozada?
According to TMZ, the former NFL player had the face of his soon-to-be ex-wife tattooed on his right leg. TMZ could not confirm whether the tattoo is permanent or temporary.
The couple's 41-day marriage came to an end on August 14 when Lozada filed for divorce after Johnson reportedly head-butted her during an argument. Lozada, who stars on VH1's "Basketball Wives," was hospitalized for a laceration on her head, and Johnson was arrested on misdemeanor domestic violence charges following the incident. The next day, the Miami Dolphins announced that they were terminating the wide receiver's contract.
"I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred," Johnson said in a statement on his personal website, OchoCinco News Network. "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 VH1 reality show, "Ev and Ocho," was set to premiere in September, but has since been removed from the network's fall lineup.
If the ink is permanent, Johnson would hardly be the first celebrity to get a tattoo for love -- and possibly regret it afterwards. Click through the slideshow below for others who were left with an ink-stained reminder of their exes.
