Is Chad Johnson – formerly known as Chad Ochocinco– hoping to reconcile with his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada?

After his arrest on Aug. 11 for allegedly head-butting Lozada, the former Miami Dolphins player recently showed off a new tattoo of Lozada’s face on his leg. When a Twitter user mentioned the tattoo and Lozada’s filing for a divorce, Johnson responded, “Divorce? Child please… that’s my WIFE.” To another user, he wrote, “I don’t give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for.”

But Lozada is adamant that their relationship is over. “You can’t repair this,” Lozada told PEOPLE exclusively last week. “Not right now. You just can’t.”

After the Aug. 11 incident, Lozada went to the hospital for stitches, and Johnson spent a night in jail for simple domestic battery. An upcoming reality show starring the couple, Ev and Ocho, was canceled by VH1, and his contract with the Dolphins was also scrapped.
