Add another item to the list of things contributing to the downward spiral of Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s life—and career.
VH1 has announced that its cancelling the reality show Ev & Ocho, after he was arrested for allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, over the weekend.
While the world thought that the awkward struggle of the 34-year-old hit its peak when he was dropped from the Miami Dolphins, the very same day that he was released from jail, VH1 proved that when it rains, it pours.
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev & Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it,” the network said in a statement.
Johnson and his wife tied the knot just last month, in an elaborate island ceremony. They reportedly got into an argument over a condom receipt belonging to the wide receiver. Lozada confronted him, an argument ensued, and rather than walking away, he used his head as a weapon.
Lozada, who shot to fame thanks to her many confrontations on the show Basketball Wives, went to the hospital with lacerations on her head.
Both she and her husband are not allowed to have contact with one another, which is customary practice in domestic violence situations.
