From a spot on the team to a seat in the courtroom! Chad Ochocinco also known as Chad Johnson is finding himself in a lot of trouble with the mother of his child and the law again.
The NFL star has been sued by one of his baby mamas for failing to pay a child support in the amount of $5,250 on October 15. He was also accused of being consistently late in paying the bills from previous months.
According to TMZ, Chad Johnson’s former girlfriend, Andrea Pearson, filed legal documents in the Miami court and claimed she did not have the means to adequately support the child as a result of not receiving funds from Johnson. Pearson wanted the court to force Johnson to pay the bill as soon as possible or throw him in jail until he abides to the child support agreement. A judge has not yet ruled on the issue.
Johnson has a two-year-old son with Pearson that he has always cared for to the best of his abilities. Ochocinco commented that he did agree to the amount back in March of 2012, but he is now requesting for it to be lower because he admits that he can not afford it . TMZ’s sources confirmed that the unemployed sportsman always provided for his family prior to being released from his contract with the Miami Dolphins and he even bought Pearson a new home.
Johnson’s life has definitely been on a downward spiral in the past year. He was accused of domestic violence against new wife Evelyn Lozada, cut from The Miami Dolphins,lost his new reality show on VH1 and many endorsement deals. Lozada eventually filed for divorce from him, claiming her marriage was “irretrievably broken”. Johnson was officially back to single in September.
Maybe the court will take into account Chad Johnson’s series of unfortunate events as justification for his delinquency in paying his child support.
