It's not a good time to married to a basketball player apparently. Divorce is in the air for not one, but two, Basketball Wives stars. I guess no one should be surprised, given that being a wife isn't necessarily a precursor to be on the show!
After fighting in court for seven years, Basketball Wives star Tami Roman and ex-husband Kenny Anderson have settled their child support lawsuit. Tami's child support woes were documented on Basketball Wives.
Tami filed the lawsuit in 2005, claiming Kenny stopped paying the court-ordered $8,500 a month child support he was supposed to pay for their two daughters. All together, the missed payments came to a whopping $800,000.
Uh oh. Things continue to get worse for Chad Ochocinco Johnson. It seems that his prior bad behavior could possibly be used against him, and if so, he may be facing some jail time for head butting soon to be ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. Chad's violent past is coming back to haunt him.
While he's lost his wife (obviously), Miami Dolphins contract, reality show, and endorsement deals, Chad could also be facing some serious jail time. How serious? He could be sentenced to a year in prison!
In the sneak peek of the interview with 'Nightline', Evelyn shares "It's the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love. But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself."
The interview airs tonight at 11:35 EST on Nightline.
TELL US – ARE YOU GOING TO TUNE IN TO SEE WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY?
Oh Chad. Chad, Chad, Chad, Chad, Chad. I feel like I’m chastising one of my former first grade students, yet he’s a grown a$$ man. Chad Ochocinco Johnson has gotten married and divorced within the period of a few months, head-butted his new bride Evelyn Lozada, got his new wedding spin-off cancelled, and was fired from the Miami Dolphins. That’s a lot for a day’s work. Now it seems he’s been just as busy trolling Twitter for mistresses. I guess he’ll never learn.
Ol’ Ocho’s dirty laundry has been airing ever since he became the punchline for every tabloid and blogger from here to kingdom come. Now it’s being reported that the former NFL star has had multiple affairs with women he’s met online. He’s a classy one for sure!
The mess that has become the very brief – and I mean less than three months brief – marriage of Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada continues to implode. Chad has recently lost yet another endorsement deal, in addition to being fired from the Miami Dolphins and having their upcoming VH1 spinoff Ev & Ocho dropped.
It seems things continue to get worse for the reality TV lovin’ former NFL player. A friend is now speaking out and accusing Chad of abusing the Basketball Wives star all along!
“Chad has been abusive towards Evelyn basically from the beginning of their relationship,” a source close to the couple revealed to RadarOnline.
It’s a sad day when TMZ is considered a viable source to which one goes with their legal and professional woes. And apparently Chad Johnson is in a very sad place. The former Ochocinco, who was married to Evelyn Lozada for a whopping 42 days before he head-butted his way right into divorce court and professional disgrace, has finally spoken out about his misdeed. Dang – their wedding photos were barely in the tabloids before their divorce papers were pending! Sheesh.
“I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life,” Chad beseeches.
