Looks like Chad Ochocinco isn't crying into his pillow over his divorce!
The football player just finalized his split from Evelyn Lozada two weeks ago, and already it seems he's back on the dating scene! The former wide receiver was spotted grabbing lunch with actress A.J Johnson, best known for her role in Baby Boy, at Petit Four in West Hollywood Monday.
The 34-year-old athlete is busy repairing his personal life after being arrested last month for "headbutting" now ex-wife Lozada during an intense argument. Not only did he get kicked off the Miami Dolphins following his outburst, he has been placed on twelve months probation and ordered to attend domestic violence awareness classes after pleading "no contest" to charges in court.
Directly after the incident, Ochocinco issued a public apology and made repeated attempts to win back the Basketball Wives beauty to no avail. He even tattooed Lozada's face on his calf... bet he regrets that one!
Is his 49-year-old lunch date his new lady love?
Only time will tell!
Chad Johnson's wife Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce after just 6 weeks of marriage.
Lozada filed the documents on Tuesday afternoon in Florida, and this comes just days after Johnson was arrested for domestic violence for head-butting his wife during an argument on Saturday.
Lozada reportedly found a receipt for a box of condoms her husband's car over the weekend, and when she confronted the NFL star about her discovery, things got physical and she suffered a facial laceration as a result of the argument.
Lozada claims the marriage "irretrievably broken," and TMZ reports that the couple have a prenuptial agreement, but it "won't be a big deal" due to the time frame of the marriage.
In other news, VH1 has canceled the NFL player's upcoming reality series Ev and Ocho. "Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev and Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it," the network said in a statement.
Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after his wife Evelyn Lozada accused him of head-butting her, which resulted in a cut on her head, according to police documents.
The Associated Press reports that the incident occurred on Saturday outside of the couple's home after Lozada found a receipt for a box of condoms her husband's car. The two have been married for just five weeks, and seeing as they're also filming the upcoming VH1 show, Ev and Ocho, it looks like we'll be hearing even more about this incident when the series hits the small screen.
This morning the Miami Dolphins wide receiver (and former Dancing with the Stars contestant) was released from Broward County Jail after posting $2,500 bail.
