VH1 Axes Chad Johnson Reality Show
UPDATE: Network pulls 'Ev and Ocho' from schedule following NFL player's arrest

"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 network said in a statement Monday afternoon.
Johnson was arrested Saturday in a domestic violence dispute, after allegedly head-butting Lozada during an argument at their Florida home. On Sunday, Johnson was cut from the Miami Dolphins, who the wide receiver signed with in June.
A VH1 spokesperson previously told B&C on Monday morning that production on Ev and Ocho had wrapped prior to the incident, but that no decision had been made yet on the future of the show.
Lozada was previously a cast member of VH1's Basketball Wives and the Dolphins are the subject of this season's Hard Knocks on HBO. The couple married on July 4.
