Former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson and his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada can now have contact with each other, a judge ordered Monday.

The reality pair was in Broward County court Monday for a hearing during which their no-contact order was modified, his attorney Adam B. Swickle told NBC 6 South Florida.

Johnson is also completing his counseling, so his probation could be terminated early, according to Swickle.

Lozada declined to comment to reporters outside of the courtroom. Johnson would not answer questions either.

The ex-Dolphins player was arrested in August for domestic battery after police say he head-butted Lozada during an argument.

According to Davie Police, Lozada found a receipt for condoms and confronted Johnson about it at dinner. The argument continued during their drive home, and when they arrived at their driveway, he allegedly head-butted her.

Johnson, however, told police she head-butted him.

The 34-year-old athlete pleaded no contest to the charge and avoided jail time. The couple's divorce was finalized in September.
