Chad Johnson has certainly had a whirlwind of a year. He’s gone from an NFL star, reality television star, to marrying his love, Evelyn Lozada, of VH1′s hit show, Basketball Wives. But things took a turn for the worse for Chad when he was accused of headbutting Evelyn a month after the couple tied the knot. Now, the unemployed wife beater is also being accused of being a deadbeat dad. Uh oh, what’s up with Johnson this time?
Chad Johnson had it all: a job in the NFL, a new reality show, and he had just married his love, Evelyn Lozada. But in a short amount of time, all that changed after Johnson was accused of domestic violence against Lozada. Chad was then cut from The Miami Dolphins, lost his new reality show, and Evelyn filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized back in September, and just when things appeared quiet for Johnson, he is back in the headlines!
This time, Chad is being accused of being a deadbeat dad by a former girlfriend, Andrea Pearson. Johnson had a child with Pearson back in 2010, and according to TMZ, Pearson has just filed legal documents claiming that Chad is behind $5,250 in child support. Andrea went on to claim that she cannot support the child on her own, and she is asking that Chad be thrown in jail if he doesn’t pay up asap. No ruling has been made in the case yet, so we’ll have to wait and see if Chad makes good on his child support payments.
