An alleged mistress of embattled Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson has come forward and claims she had an affair with the troubled football star for four months prior to his July 4th wedding to Evelyn Lozada.
Beverly Shiner of Boston talked to Radar Online about her affair with Johnson in detail. She claims the affair began after she contacted Johnson on Twitter and he subsequently asked her out to dinner. Shiner insists she thought Lozada and Johnson had broken off their engagement.
“I Googled him before we met and saw he was engaged, but at the time there were reports that she had broken it off because she thought he was cheating, so I assumed they had split up,” she said. She didn’t find out Johnson and Lozada were still together until she saw women’s toiletries in his bathroom, she said. Nonetheless, the affair continued.
Shiner noted how Johnson would treat Lozada and says he treated her more like an employee than his partner.
“While I was there he called Evelyn and asked if she could order a pizza to be delivered for him, and even had her pay for it on her credit card,” Shiner said. “I thought it was odd and wondered if she was really his fiancée or just a secretary.”
Shiner says Johnson would contact her while he was with Lozada and his family, even as he watched this year’s Super Bowl.
The affair ended in May after Shiner felt Johnson had disrespected her. “He had asked me to come over, so I drove there and knocked on his door and he didn’t answer even though I could hear his X Box playing,” she said. “Then I texted him the next day and he didn’t apologize. I got upset and told him, ‘You are not the guy I thought you were,’ to which he replied that he had been sleeping and warned me, ‘You’re overstepping your boundaries a little bit. I’m not your man, keep your comments to yourself.’”
Johnson has not responded to these allegations. Lozada filed for divorce on Tuesday – two days after Johnson was released from prison for allegedly head-butting her during an argument,
