Ochocinco's Dating Life Messes with Dating Show

8/23/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco is constantly tweeting about his dating life -- but since it has nothing to do with his VH1 dating show, sources tell us ... the network is none too pleased.

Ochocinco has been dating Evelyn Lozada (of VH1's "Basketball Wives") for the past several months ... and he has made no secret of their relationship (just check his Twitter once in a while). Things are so serious between the two, we're told Chad will be popping up on her show next season.

But sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... VH1 is pissed at Ochocinco about the relationship -- since he's the star of a dating show that's currently airing on VH1! We're told the network doesn't like the "spoiler" that Ochocinco doesn't end up with anyone on the show.

A rep for VH1 tells TMZ, "We cannot comment on possible story lines regarding series currently airing or in production."

VH1 just needs to be happy that no one on this dating show has either died or killed anybody.

R U Serious?    

VH1 must think we are stupid. The first season of ANY of their dating shows have always been a wash. They either don't choose anyone or they do and on the reunion show, they break up. This is all a setup for the second and FINAL season. *yawning*...BORING!

This woman is nasty and trashy... can't wait until he gets rid of her. Her show on VH1 shows just how ugly women can be and still think they are classy women. GROSS!

Breech of contract is not cool... Out of respect for doing business that HE agreed to I do not think that it is right that he has promoted his new relationship..

Eventhough I am happy for both of them Chad made his life business first and should have upheld his end of the contract..
