Chad Johnson had fans doing a double take recently after the football player showcased what he claimed to be his skills at doing a woman’s hair and makeup by posting a photo of his fiancée, Sharelle Rosado.
Several social media followers seeing the post mistook the real estate broker for Johnson’s ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. Johnson and Lozada, who were together for about two years, got married in July 2012.
One month after their nuptials, Lozada would be hospitalized for head butt injuries she sustained during an altercation with Johnson. Following the domestic dispute, Johnson and Lozada would ultimately break up. Their divorce was finalized in September 2012.
In a Twitter post shared on Oct. 1, Johnson jokingly claimed that he eliminated an expense by doing Rosado’s hair and makeup as she prepped for an undisclosed event. While sharing an image of the final results, the father of seven wrote, “Hair & makeup by me after watching YouTube tutorials, eliminating 1 expense at a time.”
In another tweet, Johnson took the joke a step further by telling his female followers that he offers an “array of services” and is willing to travel. He said, “Ladies my booking info is in my instagram bio, i provide an array of services & i do travel…”
As Johnson’s post began making its rounds on social media blogs, a handful of people expressed how strongly Rosado favored Evelyn Lozada.
“Child I thought Evelyn done let that man do her makeup.”
“Damn! Thought that was Evelyn.”
“It’s scary how much her and Evelyn look alike.”
“Thought that was Evelyn for a minute.”
“Evelyn, is that you?”
One day after Johnson’s post, Rosado took to Instagram to share details on the actual people who were responsible for her hair and makeup. While sharing the same photo, she wrote the caption, Face Card never been declined MUA: @tlcdivo Hair: @schatzi.c.
Immediately after Rosado’s upload, some fans claimed that they only came to her page after Johnson revealed that he was the mastermind behind her new look.
One wrote, “I had to find your page cause I was really thinking @ochocinco did your hair and make up according to shaderoom got me telling my man off cause he won’t even take my hair out.”
Another said, “Not me coming here after seeing Chad posting up about doing hair and makeup.”
