Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and his new wife Evelyn Lozada aren’t having the best week ever. The NFL player was arrested this weekend on a domestic charge abuse, while Lozada was admitted to the hospital for a bruise on the head. The “Basketball Wives” has since been treated and released, while Johnson has been abruptly released from his contract with the Miami Dolphins.
Lozada was released from West Side Regional Hospital on Saturday night and received positive support from fans on Twitter. Her husband, on the other hand, lost his contract with the Miami Dolphins about 24 hours after he was arrested. His coach Joe Philbin had this to say after hearing the news: “We’re going to deal with this. We’re not going to waste time. … We’re all in this thing together. Everybody that sets foot in this building, we’re all held to a high standard.”
Johnson allegedly head-butted his wife Evelyn Lozada during a dispute, but he later told police that it was an accident. The fight reportedly began after she found a receipt for condoms in his car.
