VH1 drops Chad Johnson's reality show after his domestic violence arrest
VH1 dropped the reality show starring now ex-Miami Dolphin Chad Johnson and his new wife Monday after the wide receiver was arrested on a domestic violence charge last weekend.
Johnson, the 34-year-old star who once went by the name Chad Ochocinco, was arrested Saturday for allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, 36, during an argument. He was released by the Dolphins the next day.
"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," VH1 said in a statement.
The show, "Ev & Ocho," had reportedly finished filming and was set to debut Sept. 3.
