Chad Johnson just lost another job ... VH1 tells TMZ the network is cancelling plans to air Chad's upcoming reality show in the wake of his domestic violence arrest.

The series, titled "Ev and Ocho" is already in the can and was supposed to debut on Sept. 3.

But now, after Chad was arrested for allegedly headbutting his wife Evelyn Lozada ... VH1 tells us:

"Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

The show was a spinoff of "Basketball Wives" ... which followed the couple's relationship from dating to engagement. The new show was supposed to focus on "the journey of this charismatic and passionate couple's every step, as they prepare to walk down the aisle and into each other's hearts forever."

Sure, go ahead and kick a guy when he is down. Talk about piling on, and the guy hasn't even been convicted yet.

That's got to hurt. These two live being on TV more than life itself. I guess there is such a thing as bad publicity after all. BTW, thank you VH1.

His wife is a nut but instead of hitting her you walk away. No matter what she does you don't hit. If its that bad why stay with her. You both are getting what you deserve because y'all don't deserve to have your own show!

Good job Evelyn. You just killed 2 birds with one headbutt. Now you have no ball player or TV show.

It's about time that domestic abuse is no longer going to be tolerated in American society. What took you so long?

So I assume that this gold digging ho will also be fired from the (ex)Basketball Wives. She should have been put in jail for assault for things she has done on the show. The interesting thing is that, on that show, she said it was expected that Johnson would sleep with other women and it's was ok if A) he wore condoms B) If he let her know. Well, he has lost 2 jobs because of what she said was ok. With her behavior and history, I'm sure she headbutted him, she is very violent.
