Chad Ochocinco

I'm Getting My Johnson Back

2/9/2012 11:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco is going back to Chad Johnson
Say goodbye to Chad Ochocinco ... the Patriots star is telling friends, he plans to change his last name BACK to Johnson in time for his wedding this summer -- because he doesn't want his wife to have a made-up last name.

Ocho's wedding to his "Basketball Wives" fiancee Evelyn Lozada is set for July in Florida -- and sources tell TMZ, the wide receiver plans to legally change his last name back to the one he was born with before he ties the knot.

Despite hedging last month, we're told Evelyn doesn't care what name she ends up with -- Johnson or Ochocinco -- the choice is entirely up to Chad ... but it appears he's already made up his mind.

Too bad ... we literally JUST bought his Pats jersey.

Why bother? They will be divorced within a year. She is a hoe and he is a damn ass . . . Remember they f+*#ed the night they first met.

Excuse me? She doesn't HAVE to have a made-up last name because she doesn't have to take his last name at all, whatever it is.

The number 85 translated in Spanish = OCHENTA Y CINCO.
If he was trying to appeal to a Spanish speaking audience, like my ex-husband, who while trying to "learn" American football, kept correcting Chad's translation for the number 85. It bugged him. Too bad he didn't get his super bowl ring. As a Bengals fan, the years he and Terrell were here were fun, but also thought to be distractive as they were too involved in "reality tv" to concentrate on getting to the Super Bowl.

Just when I was getting use to him being called Ocho. Maybe his soon to be wife Evelyn doesn't want to have to learn how to spell his now last name or the time to write it when she writing out checks,spending his credit cards, and files for divorce papers.

This guy is such a poser. Chad Johnson/Ochocinco or whatever he calls himself thinks he's more important than he really is. I hope he takes his w.h.0re shrew of a wife and falls into the ocean.

Who cares what name this jerk uses? He's been saying he was changing his name back to Johnson for the past year. He's nothing but an attention seeker.

No biggie. And is uniform number, translated into Spanish and spelled out(like he thought he'd done)would ACTUALLY have been "Ochenta y Cinco".

Run from that hosebag Evelyn before it is too late FOOL !!!!! I never thought anyone could be as dumb as they look, but you Chad are pathetic to fall for that skank, she is low class as they come and belongs back in the projects where she has left her family. Evelyn is for Evelyn and fools like you enable her. I stopped watching Basketball WIVES BECAUSE SHE CAME BACK FOR ANOTHER SEASON
