For NFL player Chad Ochocinco, a head-butting weekend confrontation with his wife of 39-days, Evelyn Lozada has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment.
VH1 pulled the series ”Ev and Ocho” from its schedule, citing ”the seriousness of the allegations” against Johnson. The network said that it now had no plans to air the show.
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.”
The Dolphins terminated Johnson’s contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show ”Basketball Wives.”
Coach Joe Philbin says the decision to release the six-time Pro Bowl receiver wasn’t based on any single incident and wasn’t made to send a message. Instead, Philbin decided Johnson and the Dolphins were simply a bad fit.
