Chad Johnson has dug himself quite the hole. After allegedly assaulting his wife Evelyn Lozada, Chad has lost his job, reality show, and Evelyn, in addition to being sued for $130,000 by a former employee.
Now the former footballer is feilding demands for money from an entire nation. Yup, you read that right!
According to Radar Online, the Caribbean island of St. Maarten is expecting a $90,000 refund from Chad — the amount of money the country says it spent on Chad’s July 4 wedding to Evelyn — which was held at the picturesque locale.
It turns out that the government of St. Maarten agreed to pay part of the bill for Chad’s nuptials in exchange for some massive exposure on the couple’s VH1 reality show, Ev & Ocho, which was all about the duo’s trip down the aisle.
However, now that VH1 has canceled the show before any footage made it to air, officials in St. Maarten are demanding that Chad pay them back the $90K they spent.
The island's Finance Minister Roland Tuit said, “When someone is investing in business it's a risk they are taking and if something happens then they will have to deal with the consequences. Naturally, we have a contract with Johnson and that contract has some clauses inside of it and St. Maarten will use those clauses if necessary.”
If the show never airs, the government of St. Maarten is fully prepared to take legal action to get their money back.
While Roland Tuit maintains that Johnson signed an agreement with the island’s government, Evelyn claims she never signed such a contract and wasn’t even aware that a deal was in place.
Do you think Chad will have to pay up? Sound off below!
