Chad Johnson is not having a great week. He was arrested Saturday night for domestic abuse against his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, which then resulted in his being released from the Miami Dolphins, and now, VH1 has cancelled the couple’s spin-off show, “Ev & Ocho.”
The network released a statement saying:
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.”
I think people’s initial thought when they heard about this was oh, this is a publicity stunt, especially because the show was set to premiere in just a few weeks, but this seems to be a lot more serious than that.
