The marriage of EVELYN LOZADA and CHAD ‘OCHOCINCO’ JOHNSON is finally, and legally, over. Yesterday morning, a Florida judge signed off on the divorce papers filed just a month ago.
JOHNSON’s attorney ADAM SWICKLE revealed that the hearing was “very quick” and “procedural.” It only lasted “three to five minutes” and neither CHAD nor EVELYN were present.
LOZADA, who is clearly ready to move on from the violent past with her ex-husband, tweeted “What a GREAT morning,” shortly before news of their finalized divorce broke.
JOHNSON is hoping to reset his career, and has admitted to currently taking anger management classes, in hopes to make a return to the NFL.
Let’s hope these two can peacefully move on with their lives – and that we won’t have to hear about them for a very very long time.

TAMEKA FOSTER and RYAN GLOVER, faced one of the hardest decisions that could ever be bestowed upon a parent, when they decided to take their 11-year-old son, KILE GLOVER off of life support over the weekend.
KILE was declared brain dead several weeks ago, after being hit by a jet ski driven by family friend, JEFFERY HUBBARD.
While family and friends of KILE GLOVER are mourning the tragic accident that unfortunately claimed KILE’s life, questions regarding whether or not legal action will be taken against HUBBARD has risen.
According to Georgia Wild Life, the 100-foot law “requires boat operators to slow to idle speed when they are within 100 feet of docks, piers, bridges, shorelines or people in the water.”
Because KILE was hit while on an inner tube and HUBBARD was driving a jet-ski, it is clear that HUBBARD was in violation of the 100-foot law.
Despite recent questions of the 100-foot law, there has yet to be any criminal charges filed against HUBBARD.
We send our deepest condolences to the families affected by this terribly sad situation.

MONICA kicked it off, , as she opened the tribute with a soulful rendition of WHITNEY’s, ” I Love The Lord,” followed up by BRANDY with an high energy filled performance covering, “I’m Your Baby Tonight” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”

CHAKA KHAN ended things on happier note closing the tribute with an upbeat performance of “I’m Every Woman.”
One of the most poignant moments of the night, was the tribute to the late great WHITNEY HOUSTON.
