Things aren't getting any easier for Chad Johnson. Of course, that's what happens when you allegedly batter your wife.

Following his arrest this weekend and subsequent dismissal from the Miami Dolphins, VH1 has announced it plans to pull the plug on Johnson's upcoming reality show.

"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.

Johnson's new wife, Evelyn Lozada, who was formerly engaged to former Miami Heat star Antoine Walker, starred on the network's Basketball Wives. Johnson, a reality TV veteran in his own right, began dating Lozada and their courtship was broadcast on the show. The pair's July wedding was filmed for the planned spinoff.

Now Johnson has found himself in a giant mess after he allegedly head-butted Lozada Saturday night. The argument began after Lozada found a receipt for condoms in his car.

Johnson was quickly cut from the Dolphins, which also means he's off of HBO's Hard Knocks as well. However, the next episode will address the controversy.

I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won. I admit that I'm often... vexed at the behavior of my own people. Yeah... "vexed" is a good word. You do what you can to help black folks, and they make you wonder why you even bother. But they're our people, and we gotta love 'em regardless. One thing for sure, though: can't blame this one on the white man.... what am I sayin'? 'Course I can!

I remember some years back when Florida Panthers goalie Rob Niedermayer grabbed his pregnant wife by the hair and dragged her down a flight of stairs and it made the news like once. And how many times has this Chad Johnson story been on the news? And people say it's not about race. Yeah right.

@cheryl. I was just about to say that too! There s chad's. Evelyn's. And God!!! As for peyton manning. If you read it correctly I used him as an example. Not once did i say he did the same thing. Get your facts right. I'm not talking to you cheryl. Smile. They know who I'm referring too. The people who mentioned my name in their comments who could never understand what my point is. SMH!

@vanessa. Stop acting so childish and grow up. This is an adult discussion. And in a discussion...everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion! Besides you don't know me. And thank God I don't know you!!

The fact- he was booked. That's enough- probable cause in Miami- children and woman are taken care of. Miami or let say Florida does not play when it comes to woman and children being abused. There's enough bS going on in MIA to let shit slide- those who don't know- WTFU! MIA has had a lot of issues with abuse- if you live in MIA don't FU!.

IMO the Fins were looking for a reason to dump him. Otherwise they would have "overlooked" the incident, like they've done with about a zillion player fuckups before. & How STUPID do you have to be to leave a receipt in your wallets with CONDOMS written on it? There's always more to the story than we hear but the shit already hit the fan and now the only thing is how he's going to react to all this and where he goes from here. Or comes, as the case may be.

stephanie, im all for the race card but this guy hit his wife. if it was peyton manning, im sure he wouldnt be getting caught buying condoms and he sure as hell wouldnt assualt her if she confronted him. im sad we lost a receiver, but cmoooon - you cant honsetly defend what he did.
