'Bachelorette' Bad Boy Chad Johnson Shows His Softer Side With Sweet Tribute to Late Mom

By

This is the softer side of Chad.


The Bachelorette
contestant Chad Johnson did say that his villainous antics were "amplified" for the show, and now, the 28-year-old reality star is getting personal with a touching tribute to his late mother.

Having a hard time missing my Mom today. She was the happiest most positive person I've ever known and she was taken from me and my family way too soon. For everyone out there with a loved one fighting cancer, I want to encourage you to seek alternative healing methods other than #chemo. Watching my mother go through #breastcancer and then #livercancer while being treated with #chemotherapy was the worst thing a person or a family could ever have to endure. Please people, look into a change of diet, a change of lifestyle, and natural healing methods such as cannabis oil. Give your loved ones a fighting chance. @susangkomen @breastcancer_awareness @breastcancernow @fxckcancer @cancersuckscom @cancersucks_spread_awareness

Chad went on to recall how painful it was watching his mother battle cancer and suggested anyone going through the same trauma look into "alternative healing methods."

"Watching my mother go through #breastcancer and then #livercancer while being treated with #chemotherapy was the worst thing a person or a family could ever have to endure," he wrote. "Please people, look into a change of diet, a change of lifestyle, and natural healing methods such as cannabis oil. Give your loved ones a fighting chance."

In a previous post, the real estate agent explained how his mom was his inspiration to sign up for The Bachelorette:

The one question people keep asking, is why did I go on #TheBachelorette? Well other than the fact that I work all the time, for 7 years I watched my mother slowly die from cancer. Over the last 3 she got much worse and I decided to spend all of my time that I wasn't working, at her house taking care of her and generally spending time with her. She was all alone since her divorce from my father. My sister and I were all that she had. So I have not had a relationship in a very long time because I was busy trying to make sure my mother lived out her final years in comfort and surrounded by family. I still miss her everyday... She was my best friend and the person I told everything to. #family #bachelornation #bachelorette #bachelormonday #joelle #jojo #chadjohnson

JoJo Fletcher sent Chad home in last week's episode and the show just hasn't been the same without him. No word yet on how Bachelorette fan Justin Bieber handled the elimination, but we do know he loves him some Chad.
