CHAD Johnson is the new name for Chad Ochocinco!
The Miami Dolphins wide receiver has revealed he changed his name to Johnson, and the “main reason” goes back to his new marriage to reality TV star Evelyn Lozada.
“The couple preferred Evelyn’s last name to be a real name and not the fun ‘Ochocinco’ character we have come to love,” said a statement on Chad Johnson‘s website.
Speaking to ESPN, Chad Johnson further explained his motivation to drop the $401 necessary to change his name for the second time in four years.
“I’m refocused and locked in. Time to get back to the old me,” he said. “I’m just doing it for the marriage. It has nothing to do with football. Ochocinco is still in me. It’s just my middle name.”
