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

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.”

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

      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.

    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.

    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.

    PS…. Syl Johnson has three daughters and all of their names begin with syl… Their mother was the first black female police commissioner in the US her name is Brenda.

    Nor does CJ play for the Patriots! Hell… He plays for NO ONE, and was LAST on the Dolphins!
    Clearly this person isn't a journalist! A very poor one, if at all.
