Speaking of baby news, Chad Johnson, 37, is now the proud papa of a brand new baby girl. The former NFL star’s girlfriend, Crystal Bates, 33, gave birth to a 7lb 6 oz. baby at approximately 8:30 a.m. They named their newest family member Kennedi Chanel Johnson.

After Kennedi’s birth, Johnson spent some time with his other daughters, Cha’iel Johnson and Jicyraa Johnson. The former NFL star and Bates are living out a real-life “Brady Bunch” scenario, as Bates has four daughters from a previous relationship. Johnson also fathers four children from previous relationships. The couple has been dating for over a year. Johnson first confirmed Bates’ pregnancy back in January.

“I literally crushed my #WCW so much I created a new #WCW,” he tweeted.

With all of those relatives, we’re guessing that Little Miss Kennedi is going to be showered with lots of love.

Chad Ochocinco Continues To Rack Up Debt On Florida Mansion

It looks like Chad Ochocinco is experiencing some financial trouble. According to The Jasmine Brand, the former NFL star has been hit with a lien by Long Lake Ranches West Homeowner’s Association in regard to his Florida mansion once shared with ex-wife and ‘Basketball Wives” star, Evelyn Lozada.

Apparently, between October 2012 and June 2014, the controversial athlete has racked up an outstanding balance of nearly $8,000. He was originally supposed to be paying $1, 333 per quarter.

In the lien, the association threatens that if Chad doesn’t pay up soon, the debt will continue to swell at an interest rate of 18% per year. It’s unclear why Chad ceased making payments to the association, but we can only hope that he gets it together soon. So far, he has not commented on the lien, but he recently scored a new gig with the Canadian football league, so maybe he can put some of that cash towards his debts.

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.

Caption This Picture Of Chad Johnson Kissing Evelyn Lozada…Through The TV Screen; She Responds

October 9th, 2013 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

At first glance, one isn’t sure whether to burst out laughing or give Chad Johnson the ultimate side-eye for this picture. The former football and reality star confused the hell out of his followers yesterday when he posted this interesting picture of himself giving a kiss to Evelyn Lozada through the television screen as an episode of Basketball Wives played. The caption he posted with the picture says (as you can see) “I caught bae by surprise…” and ironically, he caught Lozada during a moment in the show when she just so happened to look surprised.

If you follow Johnson on Twitter, you already know that he stays cracking jokes and acting a fool, but this isn’t the first time he’s show some form of love to Lozada on his Twitter. If you’ll recall, when Basketball Wives first came back on, he was predicting what we all found out: that with Evelyn having an emotional moment every week that has to do with their infamous altercation, the show just wasn’t going to be as interesting. But he also, in his mind-games playing sort of way, publicly said that she needs to “come on back home.” And he did get that random tattoo of her face on the side of his lower leg, so clearly he still thinks about that woman–a lot.

The folks over at Necole Bitchie thought that a Twitter post Lozada shared later in the day that said, “I love surprises!” was a response to Johnson’s picture, but she quickly sent them a message to shut that down:

“Hey Necole! My tweet was in no way shape or form connected to Chad! I don’t talk or entertain anything that man does via social network! I have moved on with my life & have left all that drama behind! Please update your story.”

So there you have it. He might be trying to get her attention, but she’s not having it. At least, that’s what she says…

So how would you caption this comical (or creepy) photo of Johnson?

What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Picture Of Chad’s Johnson

Well, well, well. What do we have here. A pensive-looking Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson standing around in his draws. And not just any draws, those tight-fitting boxers that leave very little to the imagination.

Wonder what Chad was trying to accomplish when he posted this picture to his Instagram profile yesterday. Was he trying to show the NFL that despite his recent setbacks, he’s still healthy and capable of playing? With the tone and definition of his midsection, maybe.

But the lower half of the picture…oh the lower half. This lower half looks like it’s for the ladies. With his man meat all poked out, it looks like Chad and little Chad are trying to remind the women that he’s single and ready to mingle.

Hmm…maybe little Chad is the reason K. Michelle is even entertaining advances from this wayward man. You know she’s a sucker for the schlong.

But anyway, Chad seems to be thinking something in the picture above. What is it? Caption in thoughts in the comments section below.

“It Was The Best Thing That Could Have Happened To Me” Chad Talks His 7 Day Jail Sentence With Robin Roberts

"Chad Johnson pf"

I doubt any of us were really feeling sorry for Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson being sentenced to 30 days in jail. Even though we could argue that the sentencing didn’t fit the probation violation and the butt slap, he’s done enough to warrant a little sit down. And judging by his interview on today’s “Good Morning America” interview, Chad seems to agree.

In his interview with Robin Roberts, he said that the seven days he spent in jail were just what he needed. In fact, he called it “one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.”

On the judge’s sentencing and whether he thought it was fair

“I think that Judge McHugh was able to get me do something many people have tried to get me to do for a long time: slow down, just at life in general. She was able to get me to do that. maybe not in the best circumstances for those on the outside but I see being able to sit down and think about life and where I’m going from this point was probably one of the best things that could happen to me right now.”

What he’s learned from the situation

“Usually, situations like this break people…but I wouldn’t allow anything to break me. I going to be my same positive self.  I think with me being Chad it kind of made the judge feel that I wasn’t being serious about the situation but, trust me, I understood exactly what I did. I lost two of the things in life that I loved the most at the time. Football and my now beautiful, I did say beautiful, ex-wife.”

On playing football again

“I think everyone deserves a second chance. Many would say I might not deserve it. I would like to finish my career off the right way. I don’t want the last thing to be remembered you know, well, Chad was cut from the Dolphins for an incident he had with his wife. I would love to grace the football field one more time and to help some team. I’m not injured. There’s nothing wrong with me.”

I find it very interesting that Chad does this interview the day pictures of Evelyn from the almost year-old domestic violence incident are released. Tres bizarre. And the emphasis on the word beautiful was oddly interesting as well. It’s clear Chad is trying to rebuild, professionally in the eyes of the NFL as well as in the eyes of the public. Just like Robin said, we’ll certainly be watching to see what happens to this character. You never know how the cookie will crumble.

Bitter Much? Chad Ochocinco Shows Just How Salty He Is In Twitter Rant About Evelyn Lozada

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.

Evelyn Wants Contact, She Gets Contact: Judge Lifts BBW’s Restraining Order Against Chad At Her Request

Former Miami Dolphins player, Chad Johnson and ex-wife Evelyn Lozada made their first public appearance together since their extremely ugly divorce yesterday in court. Why were they in court you ask? Thankfully, they weren’t there pressing assault charges against each other. Instead, they were doing something remotely opposite. They were there to lift the restraining order that was put in place after the two had a fallout over Chad’s infidelity, which ended in a head-butt lifted.

A video recovered by TMZ depicts Evelyn and Chad standing before a judge in a Florida courtroom as the judge proceeds to ask Evelyn if she feels threatened by Chad or is afraid of him. Evelyn responds “no” each time and the judge honored her request and lifted the restraining order.

Now Im sure that while some are in shock after hearing this news, others aren’t as Ev has been hinting to multiple media outlets that she would like to begin talking to Chad again and how she believes he deserves a second chance. One can’t say for sure that Evelyn’s request to lift her restraining order against Chad will result in a romantic reunion between the two, but then again, the possibility is certainly there.

Just last week, Evelyn told Radar Online that it was difficult having a “no contact clause” with Chad because he still wears his wedding ring and expresses that he wants her back.

“I haven’t spoken to Chad, we can’t – we have a ‘no contact’ clause, but I hear things. He recently did an interview on ESPN and I saw clips of it but it wasn’t easy to watch because he is still wearing his wedding ring, and says he still wants to be married.”

Ironically though, she also told Rumor Fix that although she had some questions for him, she didn’t think that reconnecting the lines of communication was a good idea.

“He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom, I also don’t think it would be good for us.”

I guess she’s had a change of heart since then.

‘I Do Believe In Second Chances’: Evelyn Lozada Opens Up About Her And Chad’s Future

December 13th, 2012 - By Jazmine Denise Rogers

About four months have passed since “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada and then new husband Chad Ochocinco made headlines for a domestic violence dispute that ended in Chad being arrested, dropped from his contract with the Miami Dolphins, and an end to the couple’s 42-day marriage. With the exception of Evelyn’s appearance on Iyanla Vanzant’s “Fix My Life” and ABC News, the two pretty much refrained from discussing the incident. Until now, that is.

Last Wednesday, we reported on an interview that Chad did with ESPN’s First Take where he opened up about what went down between him and Lozada and getting help for his issues with domestic violence. He also admitted to cheating on Evelyn, but not without stating that he believed he deserved a second chance.

Since the interview aired, Evelyn has also opened up just a teeny bit more on her feelings about Chad and how she’s dealing in the aftermath of her public divorce.

In an interview with Rumor Fix, the reality star was asked how she felt about second chances and if she believed Chad deserved another chance. Here’s what she had to say:

“I do believe in second chances. I actually had someone ask me that recently, and I do. I’m not bitter, things happen and yeah, I do believe in second chances. I would want somebody to give me a second chances, and you never know.”

Interesting. Lozada also revealed in an exclusive interview with Radar Online that she would like to sit down and have a conversation with Chad someday.

“At some point a conversation needs to take place, I have questions about everything and that will happen when it’s supposed to happen,” Evelyn confides. “I would definitely like to sit down and talk to him down the road – I would just really like to get up in his head and ask, ‘Why?’

“Obviously he wasn’t thinking, but as a woman, there are certain things I needed closure with like why he cheated? It is hard for me to wrap my head around why someone would put everything at risk.”
“But I am not a man either so I don’t get that at all. Obviously that is wrong, I feel like we were both a lesson to each other, I have learned so many things… things that I will never tolerate again.”
She also expressed how she’s been dealing with his openness about still wanting to be married to her.

“I haven’t spoken to Chad, we can’t – we have a ‘no contact’ clause, but I hear things. He recently did an interview on ESPN and I saw clips of it but it wasn’t easy to watch because he is still wearing his wedding ring, and says he still wants to be married.

“He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom, I also don’t think it would be good for us.”

 Ev is asking an age old question that just about every woman who has ever been cheated on has pondered at one point or another. Unfortunately, the odds her getting an honest answer are slim to none. She seems as if she’s in a really great place and although her heart may want to go back, she realizes that the decision would be unwise– hopefully.

Some girls dream about that special sacred union since they’re very small; hopeful that one day they’ll be clad in a long white gown, adorned with jewels and flowers, and surrounded by a plethora of family and friends . This ceremony is hoped to be beautiful and magical, and the love between the two who are marrying is supposed to last forever.


One thing that Hollywood has made abundantly clear is that marriage is not meant for eternity, in fact, some marriages are over before the credits, on a feature length film, can roll.
