The Case of ‘Ev & Ocho’

This past weekend saw the undoing of high-profile celebrity couple Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco.

After barely a month of marriage, the reality starlet and her football hubby were reportedly caught in a fiery altercation that left the ‘Basketball Wife’ with a laceration on her head and the vet wide receiver under arrest for a night.

According to the Miami police department, a report stated that the conflict was insinuated by a receipt for condoms Johnson found while the couple was driving home. Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said that Evelyn told cops that the NFL star head-butted her in front of their Miami home in the midst of an intense argument.

After posting $2,500 bail on Sunday, the player formerly dubbed Ochocinco was cut from the Miami Dolphins after a struggle season with the New England Patriots, an NFL insider told ESPN. He was charged for domestic battery, a misdemeanor.

Johnson’s defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting Lozada.

The drama unfolds only weeks before the premiere of their joint reality show Ev & Ocho but the details of their real-life events have yet to play out.
