VH1 is pulling reality series “Ev and Ocho” from its schedule. Shocker!
The reality series starring NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and his wife Evelyn Lozada was expected to follow the married couple as they make their wedding preparations and highlight their big day.
However, VH1 has reconsidered plans to air the series following allegations of domestic violence. The network said in a statement, “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.”
Chad was arrested Saturday in a domestic violence dispute, after allegedly head-butting Evelyn during an argument. Following the arrest, Chad was dropped from the Miami Dolphins.
The reality series was schedule to premiere Sept. 3 on VH1.
