27-year-old singer-turned-reality star K.Michelle has been very vocal about her departure from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta over the past few months, but during a recent interview with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club, she dropped the bomb that in addition to starring in her own spin-off show, she’ll be switching sides and joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop New York. The “I Just Wanna” singer also discussed rumors about her relationship with former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson. After previously denying being romantically involved with the ex athlete, K revealed that she’s being courted by him. Check out some excerpts from her interview below.
On leaving LHHATL and joining LHHNY:
“It’s just time to go. I got some other stuff popping off. They are actually bringing me to ‘Love & Hip Hop New York.’ I do have my own show [as well].”
“Coming to New York is basically setting up my own show. It’ll kind of be my own show within ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ You really won’t see me with – you know.”
On reality TV changing her life:
“I always say this, nobody, no matter how good I was singing or what was going on, nobody was listening to my music. And now all of a sudden, I put out this mixtape. It got over a million downloads. All my New York shows, all my shows are selling out because they introduced me on this show. ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ was a great stepping stone for me.”
On if J.R. Smith is really “desert thirsty” like Rihanna says he is:
“That ain’t have nothing to do with me. But that one, she said what she needed to say to that young man so… I don’t know [if he's desert thirsty]. When it comes to him, I said my peace. Good luck with it.”
On being with a woman:
“Yeah [I've been with a woman]. I’ve sang about it. It’s nothing… I have dipped out. I thought I was gay for three months. I realized what y’all men go through. The b***h actually jumped on my car. Like, I had a new car. She actually jumped on my car and scratched it up with her shoe and it was wrap.”
On Chad Johnson buying her a pet monkey:
“Yes, he did. You can’t bring the monkey to New York, so the monkey is in Florida and I’ve been trying to find it a home. Chad approached me and he tried to date me and I was like, ‘No, I don’t want no shoes. Everybody get shoes man. I want a monkey.’”
On Chad trying to woo her:
“I thought it was a sweet gesture. And no, we have not slept together. I been through a lot with this dating thing. I spoke to Chad yesterday. We are friends and I think that’s what it needs to be. I think I hopped into something that I shouldn’t have hopped into so quickly last time and I feel like now I have to pace it.”
“We are going to dinner and we are being friends. We’re talking on the phone. He’s courting.”
“He’s really nice. I’m getting to know him as a friend.”

Former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson has been making headlines quite frequently lately and not for good reasons. Just yesterday we reported that the athlete-turned-reality star was crying broke to family court, pleading wit the judge to lower his child support payments. Now, we’ve learned that he’s been arrested for violating the guidelines of his probation.
According to courtroom footage recovered by TMZ, Johnson failed to report to his probation officer on multiple occasions and was taking too long to complete his court-ordered batterer intervention classes.
In the video, Chad can be seen pleading with the judge, expressing that he wouldn’t blatantly disobey his probation officer, but she wasn’t buying it.
“It was a total misunderstanding… I’m not sure how that got misconstrued, but I wouldn’t blatantly not show up. I was doing everything I was supposed to do. I haven’t had any problems. I haven’t been in any trouble. I didn’t do any of this on purpose,” Chad calmly told the judge.
The judge, however, proceeded to question why it’s taken him over seven months to complete his 26-week batterer intervention program.
In the end, the judge determined that 35-year-old Johnson was in violation of his probation and ordered that he be arrested and jailed. According to reports, bond has been set at $1,000. Although it’s only Monday, it might be safe to say that he’s officially having the worst week ever.

It was all good a couple of years ago.
Former NFL star Chad Johnson is trying to keep his financial head above water and part of that includes wanting his child support payments for one of his children lowered.
Johnson recently filed court papers stating that he would like the court payments lowered because when he initially agreed to pay the $5,420 per month back in March 2012, he was doing very well for himself. But now, Johnson says he cannot afford the payments stating he”finds himself without a contract and without a team. Simply [I am] unemployed.”
The child involved in these particular documents is a son he has with Andrea Pearson. They were involved in a bit of a child support “battle” until they both agreed on that monthly $5,420 check. The son is one of five children Johnson has fathered.
There was no word from TMZ how much child support, if any, he pays for all of his other children.
My, how the “mighty” have fallen. Johnson was having a pretty good year in 2012 for quite some time: he became an even bigger star after he began dating and eventually being engaged to Basketball Wives cast member Evelyn Lozada. But that relationship ended in the summer of 2012 after he head butted her during an argument.
He was then released from the Miami Dolphins, he lost pretty much all of his endorsement deal and he and Evelyn’s reality show was shut down.
No word yet on how the judge will rule.
Earlier this week rumors of a budding love affair between Love & Hip Hop star K.Michelle and ex-Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson began to swirl following a report issued by MTO. Although most know to take a lot of things on MTO with a grain of salt, the thought of K and Chad together didn’t seem completely impossible. The site went on to say that K.Michelle and Chad would be a toxic combination because her mouth has no filter and both she and Chad are hot heads who can’t seem to always keep their hands to themselves.
In an effort to squash the rumors before they got out of control, the “I Just Wanna” singer posted a picture message to her Instagram page addressing the rumors.
“I’m single, not dating anyone,” the reality star wrote.
She also felt the need to stress the non-existance of her sex life right now.
“Hot pocket shut down until further notice. I’m really f***in the sh** out of this music though,” she added.
This actually isn’t the first time that rumors of a secret relationship between Chad and K were being spread. Late March the singer responded to a Twitter follower who questioned the nature of their relationship, expressing that she had too much common sense to date Chad.
“Sorry, I’m just honest. Not easily impressed. Oh well,” she tweeted.
Last week we reported on the over the top and seemingly uncalled for Twitter rant being served up by Chad Ochocinco. In what appeared to be his attempt to throw more dirt on her name and hurt her feelings, Chad hurled a tirade of insults towards his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. During the rant, the former Miami Dolphins player tossed around accusations of infidelity, hinted that she’s a hypocritical Christian, implied that she’s sleeping around with someone from YMCMB and even began attacking her publicist. While it’s unclear exactly what pushed Chad over the edge, it seems that the reality of all that has gone down in his life over the past year is certainly beginning to sink in.
Whatever his deal is, Evelyn has made it clear that she refuses to be his verbal punching bag. While she didn’t lash back out at her ex-husband on Twitter, she communicated both loudly and clearly that there will be legal action taken if he doesn’t put an end to the shenanigans. TMZ is reporting that 37-year-old Brooklyn native had her attorney send Chad a cease and desist letter on Thursday, warning that if he doesn’t quit attacking her online, she’ll have no choice but to see him in court. Sources are also saying that she is considering getting another restraining order against him.
Chad is scheduled to appear in court today for a hearing regarding the early termination of his probation, but a source also says that the prosecutor is aware of the latest incident and has expressed concern. Some believe that it could serve as a possible hinderance to his case. Why Chad would wait until he’s just days away from an early probation termination hearing to start acting the fool, the world may never know.
What do you think of Evelyn’s decision to send Chad a cease and desist letter? Was she justified in her decision or being overly dramatic?
It appears that former Miami Dolphins star Chad Ochocino just might be losing it. Now we won’t totally jump to conclusions since we don’t know what may have happened behind the scenes to set him off, but the reality star began taking shots at his ex-wife yesterday via Twitter and even somewhat defended his violent actions that ultimately led to the couple’s divorce. He began with tweets implying that Evelyn was only with him for monetary gain.
When a follower informed him that he was the one who messed up when he decided to cheat and put his hands on Evelyn, it seems as if he almost tried to justify his actions and imply that Ev should’ve stuck around anyway.
Chad then went on to attack her publicist, who seemingly had nothing to do with the quarrel, but again, we don’t know if anything transpired behind the scenes. He also implied that Evelyn is a Christian hypocrite and that she cheated on him while they were together.
Evelyn, who appeared to remain pretty calm about what was going on, sent out a tweet letting her followers and Chad know that she was paying him no mind.
Although Evelyn may have decided to take the high road, her daughter Shanience was not too pleased with Chad’s behavior.
We’re going to have to give Chad the severe side-eye.

‘I Just Really Want My Future Husband, Very God-Fearing:’ Evelyn Lozada Talks The Possibility Of Remarrying
With ex-husband Chad Ochocino making headlines for being in hot pursuit of women, many have been wondering whether or not reality star Evelyn Lozada is also open to meeting someone new and loving again. The Jasmine Brand recently caught up with the 37-year-old Brooklyn native at Tami Roman’s nail polish launch event. During her interview she discussed finding love after divorce, her relationship with Iyanla Vanzant and coping with critics. Check out a portion of her interview below.
On what she desires in a future husband:
“I just really want my future husband, very God fearing. That is something that is really important to me especially the last eight months. People say that you go through stuff and your God’s best friend; He truly got me through so much that is first and foremost. What ever he looks like is fine, I guess that will all come. And this time I’m like ‘I’m not choosing…’ I’m going to let Him bring whoever that person is to me…even if it takes three years, it’ fine, I’m cool.”
On becoming accustomed to being harshly criticized:
“I’m so used to it, I’m so used to controversy so if there isn’t any… I’ve grown to have thick skin. I’ve grown to know everybody’s going to have an opinion and I’ve been called every name in the book. It’s just a part of putting yourself out there.”
On continuing her relationship with Iyanla Vanzant:
“Iyanla has been such a blessing to me. We recently talked over text. She has just really helped me through my whole process. She just really helped me open my eyes to things that you don’t think about, or things growing up that effect you today. She’s been great and she came at a time in my life when I really needed some type of guidance. It made say, ‘Why am I the way I am?’ Why am I so angry and why do I accept the things that I accept. She’s just been great.”

Just last August, news of an ugly domestic violence occurence between former Miami Dolphins player, Chad Ochocino and reality televsion star, Evelyn Lozada broke. The incident untimatley resulted in a divorce between the two VH1 personalities and Chad doesn’t appear to have been the same since. Despite the life-changing event that left Chad wifeless and jobless just five months ago, the 35-year-old former wide receiver is rumored to be on the prowl again, reports Gossip Extra.
Television meteorologist, Jennifer Reeves filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Brad Reeves on January 23rd, and according to a few loose-lipped industry insiders, Chad Johnson is already knocking down her door. It seems that Chad has been utilizing his Twitter account to bombard his friend and Reeves’s fellow NBC 6 anchor, Christina Hernandez with questions about the meteorologist’s availability. So far there’s no word of Jennifer taking Chad up on his offer, but it would be surprising if she did, considering his history and all.
According to reports, Jenny’s soon-to-be ex-husband was floored when he learned of Chad’s interest in Jennifer.
“Good lord!” he responded.
“We had a great marriage, so this was not my choice. Sometimes, things don’t work out between two people.”
Sadly, Brad revealed that he’s undergone three surgeries in related to his skin cancer diagnosis since Jennifer left him back in August. He also expressed that he still “loves her to death.”
That Ochcocinco is an interesting character, isn’t he? Forget not waiting for the ink to dry, this woman’s official divorce agreement hasn’t even been signed yet! I wonder what Jennifer is going to think of that massive ankle-tattoo that Chad has of his ex-wife Evelyn’s face.

I Get Why People Would Believe That: Evelyn Lozada Talks Being Blamed For Provoking The Chad Ochocino Assault
When news of Chad and Evelyn’s physical altercation first leaked back in August, people wasted no time accusing the “Basketball Wives” star of initiating the fight. People even went as far as to say that she got what she deserved. After watching her erratic behavior on the last season of “Basketball Wives”, it was difficult for many to view her as a victim when they tuned in week after week only to see her victimize her fellow cast members. In an interview with Vibe, Evelyn shared that she understands why people blamed her for the incident and accepts full responsibility for her actions last season.
“I felt that I was getting blamed for the incident happening and it was hard…but at the same time I take full responsibility for putting this perception of me out there that I just argue and fight. That’s what most people connect me with, especially with last season. So it’s like ‘Oh, okay well maybe she did something to deserve what happened.’ And I’m like ‘I didn’t do anything’. “
She also expressed how grateful she was that Chad spoke out and cleared up any misconceptions that she may have initiated the fight.
“He did an interview… he was honest and real. I finally felt relieved that he said I didn’t have anything to do with what happened that day. He takes full responsibility…”
I believe that the ability to view a situation from multiple viewpoints exhibits growth. Since the incident and of course her life-changing encounter with Iyanla Vanzant, Ev appears to be continuing down a path of positivity. Hopefully she keeps this in mind while the cameras are rolling and that temper of hers wants to flare up.

You Know What They Say About Making Assumptions: Evelyn Lozada Explains Her “Date” With Chad Johnson
Last month, reality star Evelyn Lozada made headline after headline as she began expressing how she felt about her ex-husband Chad Johnson and even revealed that she felt he deserved another chance. Eyebrows raised as news broke that she and Chad made their first public appearance together at a Florida courthouse where she requested that a judge lift the no-contact restraining order that she had against the former Miami Dolphins player. Once this occurred, most folks assumed that news of a reunion between the reality stars and a resurrection of the unaired show, Chad & Ev wasn’t far behind. A few days ago, photographs surfaced of Chad and Evelyn on what appeared to be a pre New Year’s Eve date. Considering the fact that only days prior to being spotted together, Chad stated that he and Ev were living together via his Twitter page, it was difficult not to believe that their little outing only confirmed their reunion. However, Evelyn is saying that the outing was not at all what it appeared to be and that she and Chad are not back together. In a blog post featured on her website entitled About Last Night, she provides an explanation regarding her date with Chad.
In the post, she shared that she felt it necessary to address the photographs because things were getting a “wee bit out of control”. She went on to express the reason that she and Chad were spotted out together was because she was attending his appreciation dinner with his daughter.
“I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food.”
She also addressed the current status of their relationship and whether or not the two are actually living together as Chad previously stated.
“I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time.”
While the photographs that surfaced did appear to tell the whole story, her explanation does seem to make sense. We’ll say her story checks out, for now anyway. We hope that she’s sticking to her original feelings that a romantic reunion probably isn’t the best idea considering the positive strides she’s been attempting to make lately, but we all know how it is once you allow an ex to get his foot in the door. Next thing you know, he’s moving in.
What do you make of all of this?
