Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco have enough things to worry about as the date of their wedding nears. They are currently struggling to find a venue in the Miami, Florida area to host their wedding due to the negative reputation of Lozada steaming from her stint on reality show Basketball Wives. Evelyn Lozada’s assistant is also being sued by her former friend Jennifer Williams for assault during an episode of the reality show.
Now she has to deal with Chad Ochocinco being out of a job for a period of time.
ESPN is reporting that the New England Patriots relieved him of his services today.
According to ESPN,
Ochocinco took to Twitter on Thursday to thank Patriots fans.
“Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the “Patriot” organization… fans were f—— wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best…”
Ochocinco’s biggest issue in New England was not his ability; it had more to do with his ability to pick up the Patriots playbook, which the veteran wide receiver struggled to do.
Earlier Thursday, there had been speculation that this was Ochocinco’s last day with the Patriots because the wide receiver left the training facility before the team’s OTA. However, Ochocinco said later in the day he had not been released and simply was attending an eye doctor’s appointment.
The 34-year-old caught just 15 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown in his only season with the Patriots after being acquired from the Cincinnati Bengals last July.
Currently, Evelyn and Chad are in the process of filming their latest reality show in the Miami area. It will be interesting to see how the dynamics of Chad being cut will affect their relationship. Many critics of the couple feel they are getting married only for the reality show and their feelings for one another are not genuine.
