VH1 has decided to pull the upcoming Ev & Ocho reality show from their lineup due to Chad Johnson's arrest Saturday night following an altercation with his wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada.
"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," VH1 said in a statement.
According to the police report, Evelyn says she confronted Chad after finding a receipt for a box of condoms. In the report, Evelyn goes on to claim that Chad head butted her and began to scream, at which point Evelyn reportedly ran to a neighbor's house.
Chad was charged for battery with a bond set at $2,500.
The Miami Dolphins have also cut Chad from the team following the incident.
VH1's eight-part series Ev & Ocho was set to air in September, and while wedding dress shopping in May, Evelyn told TheInsider.com that the spinoff will focus on their real-life wedding and relationship -- fights and all.
"What I've noticed with a lot of dating shows with couples, you don't really see the real. Everything's all great, and everything's peaches and cream, and for me and him, we're like an open book," she said. "We speak about everything. We're very controversial with the conversations we have, but we're also just very real as to the things we deal with. ... Maybe Chad will get cursed out a couple of times. I'm just saying ... which he has."
