Well, this has to be a weird moment for Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson. If you remember, back in 2010, the former NFL star and ex-husband of Evelyn Lozada had his own VH1 reality dating show, Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. Remember the winner, Rubi Pazmino? No? Well, girl was just arrested for allegedly stabbing her new boyfriend in the chest with a knife!
Before you panic, read it over again: It wasn’t Chad that was on the receiving end of Rubi’s alleged blade. This was her current (though probably not for long) boyfriend, who was sent to the hospital in critical condition following their domestic dispute.
So what happened? According to officials, an argument between the Chicago-based couple turned violent on May 25, causing the former reality star to stab her man in the chest with a kitchen knife. The 32-year-old gal was soon after taken into custody and charged with domestic battery.
Rubi has, however, been released after posting the $90K bail bond. There is no update on her boyfriend’s current condition.
While some of us would think Chad might be feeling some relief in this moment (don’t lie, you thought it, too!), he’s actually remaining very supportive and neutral on the situation. The following was his comment to TMZ:
"She was a doll during our times together,” the athlete said of his ex (contestant? girlfriend?). I “Love her and wish her the best in these rough times."
