Chad Johnson Chad Johnson Pleads NOT GUILTY; Files Divorce Docs

Chad Johnson insists he’s no wife beater … and entered a “not guilty” plea to misdemeanor battery this morning for the alleged attack on his wife Evelyn Lozada last month.

Chad was charged with domestic battery yesterday following his arrest in Florida on August 11th.

Evelyn has since filed for divorce.

Additionally, Chad Johnson has finally accepted the fact that his marriage to Evelyn Lozada is over … and has filed divorce docs in which he admits the union is “irretrievably broken” … TMZ has learned.

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

According to the docs, Johnson wants a judge to BLOCK Evelyn’s request that Chad foot the bill 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.
