Chad Johnson declared his love for his wife Evelyn Lozada this week via Twitter. And just telling Twitter how much he likes her probably would have been enough, but we’re talking about a man who changed his name to a bunch of numbers because it “sounded cooler.” While he has a litany of past and present problems, nobody can say Chad Johnson doesn’t go whole-hog – see, for example, this display of his undying love:
Difficult to see, but it says “Eve” underneath the portrait. The strangest part isn’t the tattoo—(yawn)—it’s the timing. Last month the couple had a domestic dispute, which ended when he allegedly headbutted the very face he now has imprinted on his leg. She has since cut off contact with him and filed for divorce. Unless that tattoo is taking place alongside some sherious shmarital shmounseling, all this gesture reveals is that he’s possibly delusional. Again.
Chad Johnson’s response?
Here’s the fun part: when you scroll back through the annuls of Hollywood history, it turns out getting a tattoo in honor of a long-time lovah is pretty de rigueur. Chad Johnson has now joined the growing ranks of other celebrities who have utilized their rights as human beings to make terrible decisions in the name of love, just like teenagers everywhere since the beginning of time.
Welcome to the club, Chad, and oh what a club it is:
And of course, the club’s founding mother/father:
…who have since rescinded their memberships.
Remember kids, if ain’t in INK it ain’t real LOVE.
