Yesterday, all signs seemed to point to the fact that Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson and his new girlfriend Crystal Bates were welcoming a new life into the world. There was a pretty extensive couple history on Instagram and a sonogram picture.

But these days you can never be too sure. So we were glad to know that Johnson came forward with some confirmation.

Here’s what he tweeted today, on Woman Crush Wednesday.

Is Chad Johnson Expecting His Fifth Child?

Source: Instagram

Quiet as it has been kept, Chad Johnson has moved on from Evelyn Lozada. These days, now that Ocho Cinco is no longer on reality tv and isn’t making appearances through the NFL, he doesn’t have the same type of platform. But there’s always Instagram and Twitter.

And those social media sites, with the help of The Shade Room, helped to tell us that the former footballer has not only been dating a new woman for close to a year now, it looks like the couple are expecting a little bundle of joy…very soon.

Crystal Bates,  33, the woman Chad has been dating, posted a sonogram picture to Instagram. And while that could have been just about anybody’s baby, judging from other pictures on her IG pages, all signs point to Chad. They’ve certainly made their relationship Instagram official.

If this is indeed Chad’s child, it will be his fifth. And if that is the case, congratulations to this couple!

Check out the sonogram picture and other shots of Chad and Crystal all coupled up.

Why me lord 😩😩 (Another Girl) 😩 SHE'S healthy tho and that's what matters most… 💓💓💓💓💓💓💓

“I Looked At His Penis And I Said You Know What? Uh Uh”: K. Michelle On Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson

While chatting with Necole Bitchie recently, K. Michelle spoke openly about her dating past, from dealing with NBA stars J.R. Smith (“J.R. isn’t a good guy”) and Lance Stephenson (“Me and him are really getting to be friends”), to the father of her son (“Yeah [he married] my sorority sister!”). But the most interesting tidbit about who she almost dated was what she dished about Chad Johnson. She said in the past that he tried to get at her (and offered to buy her some shoes…), but in this interview with Necole (who revealed that she also dated the former NFL player long ago), the singer said that she didn’t date him because not only was he not inspiring her, but she felt that he had some healing he needed to go through from all his past drama.

And oh yeah, his penis was way too big for her.

“If I can’t write a song about you, I’m not gonna date you. That means you’re not inspiring me and it’s not gonna work. ‘Damn,’ for me was a record [about] Ocho trying to date me and it was a lot of ‘nos,’ and I don’t listen to people but you do have to pay attention somewhat. I was like, ‘Damn, I’m feeling some type of way. Like, I want to try to get to know you and love you but not today.’ And that’s what ‘Damn’ was about. Like, ‘You’re cool but now is not the time for it,’ and that’s real.

His penis is so big Necole, I would not let him have sex with me. Because I did not want him to stretch my walls out because I need them. I need them. I looked at his penis and I said you know what? Uh Uh. I’m not–that thing is unreal. I can’t. I can’t take that.

He’s a cool, nice guy, he still is funny. But between that, I was not screwing him with that penis. And then on top of that, I just feel like he has his own healing and stuff to do. And I was going through my healing of situations and things like that. And it was right after Evelyn [Lozada]. So it wasn’t time for that. And she blocked me on Twitter. I love Evelyn. I’m like, ‘I ain’t got nothing to do with this Evelyn, I really like you.’ So you can unblock me Evelyn, I really do like you!”

I would say TMI, but I’m not going to lie, that was an intriguing bit of information. You can check out their chat below:

Evelyn Lozada Speaks On Domestic Violence, Says Infamous Fight With Chad Johnson Was Her “Karma For Acting A Fool”

As news coverage continues to surround Ray Rice, that elevator video of him knocking out then-fiancée Janay Palmer and the aftermath of it, the conversation about domestic violence also continues.

Evelyn Lozada’s name was brought up in a conversation about women walking away from their abusers on Twitter, and Lozada decided to join in it. She spoke about feeling like part of everything she went through with ex-husband Chad Johnson, including that domestic abuse incident where he headbutted her after she confronted him about buying condoms to cheat, was karma for her bad behavior. All in all, she said that the situation made her a much better person because she realized that she needed to work on herself.


Evelyn Lozada


And Lozada has definitely changed from the woman we used to see on “Basketball Wives” back in the day to the mother of a newborn who has traded in bottle and shade-throwing for diapers and a chill life with fiancé Carl Crawford.

She told Life & Style in the past that after her public split from Johnson, she hit rock bottom.

“I had the worst 2012, I thought my life was over. It happened so publicly, and then the passing of my brother-in-law. But that entire incident [with Chad] led me to where I’m at now.

I would say my broken bridge led me to happiness. If I had to do it again, I would because I truly feel complete right now in my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

Lozada told the magazine that Crawford changed her life for the better.

“He came into my life at a perfect time. Everything that happened makes me appreciate him 1,000 times more and he also makes me a better person.”

“3 Seconds Of Anger Cost Me A Lifetimes Worth Of Work”: Chad Johnson Says Ugly Fight With Evelyn Lozada Ruined His Career

If you’ll recall, in 2012, Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada had something of a whirlwind romance, and a majority of it was featured on Basketball Wives. But things went left after they tied the knot. If you’ll recall, on August 11, less than a month after the couple tied the knot (July 4), Johnson was arrested in Florida. He was charged with domestic battery for headbutting Lozada following a heated argument over a receipt for condoms that she found in his car. She filed for divorce (which was finalized in September of 2012), and Johnson received a year of probation after pleading no contest to his misdemeanor battery charge.

The day after Johnson was arrested, he was released from the Miami Dolphins, and things went downhill from there. He has taken jobs here and there, including being an analyst for CBS’ Fantasy Football coverage, but after playing in the NFL for more than 10 years, his career was damn near over.

Thinking back on that dark time (FYI, he’s reportedly playing ball in Canada now), Johnson hit fans with a “Throwback Thursday” where he recounted how the moment he lost his cool changed his life forever. He posted the following picture of himself in court, and continued:

Chad III



Speaking earlier this year, Johnson said that he still had love for his ex-wife, despite all they had been through: “Yeah, love don’t go nowhere like that. I will always love her, matter fact I love every goddamn body to an extent, it ain’t going nowhere.”

His most recent Twitter comments come right after Lozada’s former fiancé, Antoine Walker, spoke about her leaving him high and dry when his money ran out. Doesn’t it seem like it’s always when a woman moves on that her exes come out the basement…?

For these famous folks, talent seems to run in the family. Here are 10 pairs of celebrities who we were surprised to learn (at one time or another) were related.

Pharrell and  Timbaland

Crazy right!? Two of the most talented producers in music are cousins–at least that’s what Timbaland claims. In an online chat with fans, Tim said that a little known-fact about him is that he and Pharrell are actually cousins. Hopefully he wasn’t referring to “play cousins,” but he seemed pretty serious.

Evelyn Lozada Wants To Patch Things Up With Former BFF, Jennifer Williams…

If you used to tune into Basketball Wives, I’m sure you remember the close bond that Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams once had. They shopped together, threw shade together, and they were each other’s support system. However, their friendship fell apart when Lozada started dating Chad Johnson, who Williams called an “attention wh*re.” She wasn’t all that supportive of Lozada’s new relationship, and they eventually had a big blowup. And did we mention that Lozada’s former assistant slapped Williams in the face on national TV? Yeah, things got quite ugly.

Eventually, Williams left the bottle-throwing, table jumping shenanigans of the show behind, and after dealing with his cheating ways and some domestic violence, Lozada left Johnson. Life has gone on, but that hasn’t stopped Lozada from thinking about her former friend.



After posting this on Twitter over the weekend, followers of the former reality star and future Mrs. Crawford told her that she needed to reach out to Williams, whom she traded in for a no-good man:

So could Lozada and Williams mend things and become friends again? While Lozada is open to the idea, we’re not so sure about Ms. Williams. She posted this on Twitter last night, and we can’t help but wonder what she’s trying to say…

But what do you think? How do you know when it’s a good idea to allow someone back into your life? And when do you need to leave certain doors closed?


Evelyn Lozada Says Carl Crawford Is “Definitely An Upgrade” From Her Last Relationship…With Chad Johnson

June 27th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Evelyn Lozada hasn’t really talked that much about her man Carl Crawford, or her wedding plans like that, and all that probably has a lot to do with the fact that she has been focused on motherhood (If you’ll recall, she was pregnant when Crawford popped the question, and the public knew very little about their relationship before the fact). But while chatting with a TMZ photog at GNC, he asked to see her massive engagement ring, and she happily obliged him. The ring, a 14.5 carat diamond stunner, is quite large, and Lozada is very happy about it. The last engagement ring Lozada received was
a beautiful 10-carat ring from ex-husband Chad Johnson, and while it’s not exactly nice to compare rings, or relationships, Lozada had no problem letting the photog know how she really felt about her new boo: “He did good, huh? Definitely an upgrade from last [laughs].”


All I’m gonna say is…that IS a super stunning ring. But I have no comment on her new relationship vs. her old one (especially since seeing Carl Crawford out in these streets is like looking for Waldo). Anywho, check out what she had to say below, along with her thoughts on Draya seeking a breast reduction and more.

“Nobody Said You Had To Be With One Woman”: Chad Johnson Tries To Justify Cheating, Says Even MLK Was “Hoeing”

Chad Johnson

In the preview for an episode of Nite Cap with Peter Bailey, Chad Johnson, still doing in-depth interviews about love and why things didn’t work out between him and Evelyn Lozada (a lot of free time I guess), spoke about his issues with monogamy, which seemed to go directly against everything Bailey was saying and standing for. It was definitely a heated but lively back and forth, as Bailey spoke about men messing up good things because of their obsession with sex, and Johnson claiming that love doesn’t pay the bills. But what stood out most from their conversation was Johnson’s statements about Martin Luther King, Jr. and infidelity, which quite a few people aren’t too happy about. Here are some tidbits from that chat:

On Monogamy:

Johnson: “Nobody said it had to be the way it is. We all trying to follow rules, somebody made those rules up. Somebody made those rules up! Nobody said you had to be with one woman. Nobody said that!”

Bailey: “But isn’t the outcome of multiple women, drama?”

Johnson: “I never had any drama.”

Bailey: Chad…you never had any drama? Chad, the woman you loved got mad at you because you had other women.”

Johnson: “I told the f**in’ truth when I met her!”

Bailey: “But she got mad because of it, so it did cause drama!”

On Love:

Johnson: “Love ain’t paying no bills man.”

Bailey: “Your idea of love is off.”

Johnson: I’m just telling you the truth.

Bailey: “So you’re not willing to make that sacrifice for that woman?”

Johnson: “I can’t. It’s a great sacrifice but it’s hard to do, and I choose not to sell that dream like I can do it, and that’s the problem now. Why can’t I sit here and tell you the truth?”

On Dr. King And Cheating:

Bailey: “If Dr. King and these guys were realists, we wouldn’t be sitting here. You wouldn’t be sitting in this big ‘ol house. You wouldn’t. When Dr. King was talking this type of stuff and the brothers were like ‘Man, come on man, this ain’t never going to happen.'”

Johnson: “What was Dr. King doing behind closed doors?”

Bailey: “You really going to go there on me, Chad?”

Johnson: “Don’t sugarcoat it.”

Bailey: “It’s been documented that the man had infidelity issues.”

Johnson: “So we not being real right now…You don’t want to say hoeing? Why don’t you just say hoeing?”

Not sure what to make of all he had to say, other than that it’s clear that Chad Johnson really doesn’t seem to believe in love, and now that it’s been made clear like three times already–ladies, run in the other direction (as if there wasn’t good reason to run kicking and screaming before). Check out the preview of his conversation with Peter Bailey below and share your thoughts on his statements:

Chad Ochocinco Debuts New Girlfriend, Crystal

Well, it looks like there’s a new woman in former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s life. Apparently Chad has been seeing a young lady by the name of Crystal for the past several months. According to Baller Alert, she works as a bartender in Miami.

It’s unclear how serious their relationship is, but judging by their Instagram pages, the couple have taken a few trips together over the course of their courtship. Crystal seems like she could be a decent girl, so hopefully their relationship lasts longer than his last few flings.

Just last fall the former reality star was linked to Miami stylist Kimberly Yohman. However, it appears that whatever they had is over. When a fan inquired about Kimberly under one of Crystal’s “Man Crush Monday” posts dedicated to Chad, she simply responded:

“Why does it matter to you?”

Welp, so much for that.
