There are more marital troubles heading Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada’s way.
Just days after Lozada filed for divorce from the NFL Player, the Caribbean island of St. Maartin is requesting a refund for the couple’s elaborate wedding they helped cover, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The gossip site is reporting that the government of St. Maartin agreed to pony up $90,000 for Lozada and Johnson’s over-the-top wedding, expecting major publicity as compensation since the nuptials were supposed to be broadcast on the former couple’s reality TV show, “Ev and Ocho,” on VH1.
Now that the show has been canceled after the alleged domestic abuse dispute between Lozada and Johnson went public, St. Maartin will not be getting its promised 15 minutes of fame.
“When someone is investing in business, it's a risk they are taking and if something happens then they will have to deal with the consequences,” St. Maartin Finance Minister Roland Tuit told RadarOnline.com
“Naturally, we have a contract with Johnson and Lozada and that contract has some clauses inside of it and St. Maarten will use those clauses, if necessary.”
The publication adds that if the special does not air as scheduled, the government of St. Maartin will be taking legal action against Lozada and Johnson.
Last week, VH1 pulled ''Ev and Ocho” from its schedule, citing ''the seriousness of the allegations'' against Johnson, and said it had no plans to air the show. Johnson, a.k.a Ochocinco, was arrested after he allegedly head-butted wife of less than two months.
