chad Johnson Archive
I’m not in the man’s living room or anywhere near his personal life, but this looks like the right move for Chad Johnson.
The former NFL star filed the documents a Florida court on Thursday, responding to Lozada’s August request to divorce Johnson.
TMZ says Johnson is trying to block Lozada’s efforts to have him pay her legal fees.
The website says that according to Johnson, he and Lozada have a prenup, which he believes should be enforced, particularly when it comes to each party paying for his or her own legal fees.
Good thing Chad had the prenup. Evelyn has her own money from doing 4 years + of “Basketball Wives”, penning a book and hosting parties.
Now that this is starting to move in the best direction for the two of them, will Chad’s football career be reborn and will he miss jail time?
He’s been out of work for about a month. He’s gotten his estranged wife face tattooed on his leg. He barely tweets. On Wednesday, Chad Johnson was officially charged with misdemeanor domestic violence.
Six-time Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson has been formally charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.
The Broward State Attorney’s Office filed the charge Wednesday. Johnson faces up to a year in county jail
Johnson’s attorney will file a written plea of “Not Guilty” and will not show up to court.
It really baffles me how a guy that has never been in trouble in his 10 year NFL career can’t find a job now after this first incident. Or maybe the lack of production and age has something to do with it. But the Dolphins gave him a shot, and they need WR’s like hell needs ice water.
Have we seen the last of Mr. Johnson?
When it rains, it pours.
Marriage? Done. Job? Fired. Endorsements? Dropped. VH1 checks? Cancelled. And now this for Chad Johnson.
I remember when Star Jones basically had a free wedding to Al Reynolds. She was on “The View” giving shoutouts to all of the companies who donated things to her wedding.
If the common man working 9-5 has to shell out $15-30k for a wedding to a woman he’s courted for years, why shouldn’t multi millionaires pay for their lavish weddings? I’m not mad at St. Maarten for trying to get some free advertising.
And the beat goes on. Arrested. Released from jail. Released from the Dolphins. VH1 drops show.
It seems that Chad and Evelyn are moving on with their lives, and it will not be together.
Johnson, who was arrested over the weekend
for a domestic dispute which allegedly had him head butt his current wife Evelyn Lozado, released this statement today.
I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred. I would like to wish Evelyn well and I will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL.
To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this period in my life
This is the first that Johnson has spoken out since his arrest and release from the Miami Dolphins.
Meanwhile, a day after the 911 call was released, Evelyn Lozado filed for divorce in a Broward County Courthouse. Chad Johnson is named in the filings. Lozado released this statement on Monday
I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me. It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.
It’s probably best that these two go there separate ways. If it’s true that Chad initiated contact, Evelyn doesn’t look like the kind of person to forgive and move on.
First he lost job. He’s probably going to lose his girl.
And now VH1 says no Ev & Ocho reality show, so Chad Johnson has lost a paycheck.
VH1 told Brian Stelter of the New York Times that it is pulling the reality show, called Ev & Ocho, after Johnson was arrested for allegedly head butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. The cable channel has already taped 11 episodes of the reality show, which was supposed to premiere on September 3, but VH1 says it has no current plans to air those episodes.
After this weekends arrest and subsequent release from the Miami Dolphins, we have yet to hear anything from Chad via social media or statement. It will be interesting to hear his side of the story when all the dust settles.
His priorities at this time may be to get with another team asap, and begin the repair on his marriage, if it is salvageable.
The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson, the team announced today.
And with that 14 word statement came the end of the Chad Johnson er (can’t say era because he wasn’t there long enough) with his hometown team.
Less than 24 hours after being arrested for simple domestic battery involving his wife Evelyn Lozado, the ‘Phins decided that was enough to let him go on elsewhere and try to rebuild his career.
I’m sure in the coming days we will hear Chad’s side of the story and maybe will begin to piece together what went down that night.
On a personal note, the vitriol and hate that this guy receives is beyond me. He’s never been in trouble in his 11 year career. Does he have a big mouth? Sure. Does he have a personality? Who doesn’t? He’s a character. A guy who plays a sport for a living. Why should he be so serious?
I know Dolphans are just mad that everything that has come around this team in the last 5-10 yrs have just been tainted. You got a fractured Daunte Culpepper. You got an overrated Ted Ginn Jr. You got a fragile Trent Green. And you got a 34 year old WR who caught 15 balls in a system that he couldn’t grab onto.
But he also was a guy, up until last night, had a clean record. He’s a pro bowler and had some great years behind him. He was also the most decorated receiver the Phins had until today. That has to equal something.
With David Garrard going under the knife, and Matt Moore and Ryan Tannehill battling it out for now, the Phins could have used some extra hands there at that position. Now, they will just have to contend with what they have.
What should have been a quiet off night for the Johnsons, turned into an arrest and a barrage of speculation on social media.
Chad Johnson and his wife Evelyn were coming from dinner when (according to the police report) Evelyn found a receipt for a box of condoms in the car.
They argue all the way home. In the driveway Chad allegedly head butts Evelyn. She did have to receive medical treatment for lacerations.
Johnson is currently in custody and will see a judge in the morning before bonding out.
This could prove costly to Chad and his attempt at making the Dolphins roster. I think it will come down to a need versus want for the Dolphins brass.
