The short-lived marriage of Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada and NFL player Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson may have come to a violent conclusion on Saturday when he was arrested for allegedly physically attacking her, and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that she was right to suspect him of cheating after a Boston woman claims she had a heated affair with the former New England Patriots player.
Beverly Shiner, 30, made the groundbreaking revelation to RadarOnline.com that she dated Johnson from January until May this year, during which time Evelyn was elbow-deep in wedding plans – and she claims that the unabashed adulterer didn’t even try to hide his deceit.
After first making contact by following him on Twitter, Shiner claims that 34-year-old Chad sent a personal message to her with his number inviting her out for dinner.
“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 told Radar.
But when she got over to his Foxborough, Massachusetts, home she found women’s toiletries in the bathroom and realized they were clearly still very much a couple.
“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 told Radar. “I thought it was odd and wondered if she was really his fiancee or just a secretary.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, last weekend’s altercation between the newly-weds, who tied the knot on July 4, started when the couple was driving home from dinner and Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in the car. The argument turned physical, Lozada told cops, and her husband head-butted her! The six-time Pro Bowl receiver was arrested by Davie, Florida police and released from jail on $2,500 bond Sunday after being charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
Mother-of-two Shiner revealed that despite her initial suspicions she still slept with Chad that fateful night in January, and alleges she went on to have a relationship that lasted over three months.
“When he was at the Super Bowl (on February 5) in Indianapolis, he was texting me and saying he was missed me,” she confessed, even though Evelyn was at the big game with him along with his children.
After the Patriots lost to the New York Giants and Chad’s season — and ultimately his career with the team — was over, he went back to Miami to live with Lozada, and even though Beverly didn’t see him for another month, she claims he continued to text and say how much he wanted to be with her.
“We would get together when he was in back up in Boston,” she said, explaining how she would follow social media fanatic Evelyn on Twitter to find out when she was in and out of town.
“She eventually blocked me after she read a reply I tweeted to (Basketball Wives costar) Kenya Bell after they had had fight over kitten heels, I said Evelyn was trashy and I couldn’t believe ‘he was marrying that.'”
The affair finally came to a head in the beginning of May, Shiner claims, when after spending a passionate night together, Beverly was heading back over and he didn’t reply to her texts or calls.
“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. Then I texted him the next day and he didn’t apologize,” she told Radar.
“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.’”
Offended by his behavior and tone, Beverly was shocked by Number 85’s lack of “respect and common courtesy,” and the couple stopped keeping in contact. She eventually texted him later that month after it was reported that he had his wallet stolen but again he didn’t respond.
“He just stopped talking to me because he didn’t like the comments I made,” explained Shiner, who is adamant that it was more than just a light-hearted fling.
“It wasn’t just a one night thing, he always said he wanted to move in with me, and said if he had I’d be pregnant by then. He kept asking if I wanted to have more kids.
“Once, when I was at his house, I asked what would happen if Evelyn walked in right now, and he said she wouldn’t care.
“He said, ‘I’m not doing anything different than what every other man is doing,’ he thinks it is fine to cheat. I feel he was completely disrespectful and he led me on,” she said bitterly.
The allegations of his pre-marital philandering tops off a very rough few days for the player formerly known as Ochocinco, whose contract with the Miami Dolphins was terminated by the team within 24 hours of the domestic abuse scandal.
