Chad Johnson

Former NFL player Chad Johnson was born on January 9, 1978 and raised in Miami. He attended Oregon State before entering pro ball. Johnson spent most of his career on the Cincinnati Bengals and short stints on the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins. The Fins dropped him in 2012 following his domestic violence arrest, which also led to his divorce from ex-wife Evelyn Lozada that same year. Johnson fathered six children with four different women. His daughter Cha’iel is also a standout athlete. She’s won a Junior Olympic gold in track and also plays soccer. In 2008, Johnson changed his last name to Ochocinco to represent the number 85 on his jersey, but retreated back to his given name in 2011. Off the gridiron, Johnson has become known as a reality TV star on “Dancing With the Stars” with pro partner Cheryl Burke, “The Ultimate Catch,” and Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars Family Edition.”
