Chad Ochocinco and R&B Singer Syleena Johnson’s Father Dies After Bout With Cancer

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Black Like Moi reports:

VH1 reality star Chad OchoCinco  has had to deal with a lot of drama since the beginning of his relationship with Evelyn Lozada, but nothing compares to the loss of a loved one.

The Patriot wide-receiver’s father, Syl Johnson, has passed away after a long bout with cancer. Johnson was a Blues and Soul singer in the late 70 & 80′s. He was recently embroiled in legal battles with Kanye West, the musician charged that West used a sample of his song, “The Joy” on Watch the Throne, and he was never paid for it.

Johnson is also the father of R&B songtress, Syleena Johnson, who, ironically, became a household name on Kanye’s “All Fall Down.”

  1. Learn something new everyday.I didn’t know chad & syl were related. My condolences to them for their loss.

  2. Papa was a rollin stone wherever he laid his hat may have been home?

  3. I honestly don't believe this is accurate. Their father may have the same name but I don't believe they are related.

    • i just read on another site she confirmed it herself that they are

    • The man in this photo is NOT SYL JOHNSON! SYL is Syleena's Father. Chad's dad's name was SAM. Chad also wore his MOTHER's Last name of Johnson… not his fathers. The man in this photo looks like Chad but that is not SYL… also SYL is still alive….. If anyone watched Rand B Divas then you saw him in the episode when syleena had her acoustic show. Hell he just opened a restaurant not too long ago I don't know where this BS came from and peope are running with it….. SYLEENA and CHAD do NOT have the same father.

  4. As if Syl and Syleena could be a coincidence. That said, who knew

    • It's not true…

  5. hang in there Ocho things will get better!

  6. I'm not a fan of Chad but geesh this Brotha needs our player. May he come out of all this with a humble spirit and not a bitter one.

  7. the date on this is January and I think the story is flawed.

  8. I don’t know who Chad’s dad was but Syl Johnson IS Syleena Johnson’s dad and IS STILL ALIVE and was just performing a few months ago.

  9. Who wrote this, this information is not true. Chad and sylena are not related. They just showed.her dad on TV and those two men look nothing alike. Whoever wrote this get your facts straight.

  13. This is all so wrong!!! the amazing Soul/Blues singer/guitarist, Syl Johnson , is alive and well. Syleena is his daughter. I don’t think Chad is his son???!! Please correct this error filled piece!

  14. The man in this photo is NOT SYL JOHNSON! SYL is Syleena's Father. Chad's dad's name was SAM. Chad also wore his MOTHER's Last name of Johnson… not his fathers. The man in this photo looks like Chad but that is not SYL… also SYL is still alive….. If anyone watched Rand B Divas then you saw him in the episode when syleena had her acoustic show.

  17. Didn't know that they were siblings. Condolences.

    • Me either. I did know that Syl Johnson was her father, but not his. You learn something new everyday.

    • And, this story is over a year old.

    Clearly this person isn't a journalist! A very poor one, if at all.

  19. Mr. Syl is on Iyanla Vanzants show with Syleena right now. Poor reporting.

  20. Damn Right Mr.Clark Just Saw It Last Night Also,Someone Don't Know Their History I Don't Believe Everything I Read !!!

  21. I'm watching this episode myself & that is why I am tripping on this story.

  22. THATS A LIE SYLEENA DAD IS STILL ALIVE JUST WATCHED THE. ON IYANLA GIX MY LIFE. N CHAD BLACK ASS WAS NOT IN GHE EQUATION. HE IS A NON MOGHERFIKNFACTOR.

  23. Chad and syleena are siblings she did an interview in 2011 its on YouTube saying that they had recently found out but they don't really like to get into detail
