The NFL star was arrested for domestic violence on August 11 after Lozada found a receipt for condoms, sparking an argument that allegedly led Johnson to head-butt her.

Johnson, who’d only married Lozada weeks earlier, was subsequently cut from the Miami Dolphins and saw his reality show with Lozada canceled.

She also filed for divorce.
