VH1 is known for producing some of the trashiest reality television ever known to man, but apparently even they have their limits.
In the wake of last weekend's incident where NFL player and Dancing With The Stars alum Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson was arrested for allegedly physically attacking his wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, VH1 has scrapped plans to air their reality show Ev and Ocho, which was scheduled to premiere next month. "Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev & Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it," wrote the network in a statement to Radar Online.
The alleged assault went down when the pair were driving home from dinner and Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in the car. The argument about the receipt turned physical and Evelyn told cops that Ocho headbutted her! A Florida police officer confirmed she "has a pretty good-sized laceration on her forehead." Ocho was released from jail on bond the following day.
His problems just seem to be getting started though. An alleged mistress has come forward with claims that she slept with Ocho just days before his wedding, and then the Miami Dolphins sacked him from the team after his arrest! Let's just hope Evelyn ends this now and we don't have a Chris Brown-Rihanna situation on our hands!
What do you think of VH1 scrapping their show?
