Chad Johnson: Is He The New "Chris Brown?"

Pin It
Chad JohnsonChad's story looks a bit too familiar, don't you think? Athletes and their relationship drama!

NFL pro and stud Chad Johnson was arrested over the weekend
for domestic abuse after he and his wife of six weeks, Evelyn Lozada, got into an argument over a condom receipt that was found in his car. Johnson allegedly head-butted her, causing quite a gash on her forehead.

Johnson has since been released from jail. Lozada filed for divorce yesterday and Johnson released a statement proclaiming his love for her.

This isn't the only bad news for Johnson, he was recently dropped from the NFL team, Miami Dolphins, due to the arrest.

So, does this story sound a bit familiar?

In 2009, singers Chris Brown and Rihanna
got into a similar argument before attending a pre-Grammy party, when she found texts in his phone from another girl. Brown ending up beating Rihanna and was arrested as well. He later faced major legal and professional consequences for his actions. Not only did Rihanna leave him but he lost many fans, endorsements and respect. It's easy to say that Chris' career took quite a tumble after his arrest and probably won't ever get back to where it was or could've been.

Rihanna, who has always stayed quiet about their altercation, just opened up to Oprah about her and Chris' relationship. See why she started crying during the interview here!

It took years for Chris to dig his way out of that hole (everyone in the world was pretty much against him) and now Chad Johnson is stuck in the same situation. Will Chad's career and credibility crumble like Chris' did? The proof is already one likes a woman beater!
