Chad Ochocinco in Debt Over Florida Mansion, Hit With Tax Lien

Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson has come a long way since that infamous blowout with his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada in 2012. The former NFL player has moved on with someone new and he’s even started a new career in the Canadian football league. However, there is one lingering piece of his difficult past that’s come back to haunt him: his Florida home he once shared with the Basketball Wives star.

According to court docs obtained by The Jasmine Brand, the 36-year-old has run into some issues with paying the bills on his multi-million dollar mansion in Davie, Florida — a.k.a the scene of his head butting arrest two years ago with Evelyn.

The papers claim that he has failed to pay the nearly $8,000 of back fees to the Homeowners Association, ranging from October 2012 to June 2014. He was meant to have been paying $1,133 per quarter. As the tax lien outlines, Chad will need to pay the debt immediately, or else risk the interest rate of 18 percent per year. Yikes.

In the scheme of things, it seems like $8K shouldn’t be too hard to handle for a former pro baller who initially paid $1.4 million on the property back in 2005. Maybe he just forgot? Let’s just hope he handles these issues ASAP so as not to rack up more unnecessary debt.

Are you surprised that Chad is having issues with his finances? Tell us in the comments below.
