The first photos of Beverly Shiner -- allegedly Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson's mistress -- hit the Web Tuesday, sparking a controversy among many observers, who felt she was significantly less attractive than his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
The pictures depict a thin, young, Caucasian girl in a hot pink tank-top, and they emerged on the heels of the shocking revelation that Lozada filed for divorce Monday after Johnson allegedly head-butted her during a heated argument.
Chad Johnson -- who went for a long time by the last name "Ochocinco" until Evelyn Lozada asked him to change it earlier this year -- has seen a tragic fall from grace over the course of the barely more than a month since he and Lozada got hitched. Though his football career has faltered in recent years, he was back playing for the Miami Dolphins, he had his given name back and he had married a beautiful woman in Evelyn Lozada.
Beyond that Chad Johnson also had a VH1 reality show in the works starring him and Evelyn Lozada, called "Eve and Ocho."
But on Saturday he was arrested on charges of misdemeanor simple domestic battery for allegedly headbutting his stunning wife, on Sunday the Miami Dolphins cut him from the team, on Monday, VH1 axed the reality show, and on Tuesday TMZ reported that Lozada has already filed for divorce from Ochocinco. In other words, he lost everything in the blink of an eye (or the butt of a head.) The fight between the two short-lived lovebirds allegedly broke out when Lozada found receipts for condoms in Johnson's car, according to Media TakeOut.
And now Chad Johnson is being further humiliated, as folks take to Twitter and other social media sites to make fun of him for allegedly choosing cheat on Evelyn Lozada --while the two were engaged -- with Beverly Shiner.
Shiner, a 30-year-old woman who is by no means unattractive, certainly does not have the glamour or stunning beauty of an Evelyn Lozada, and she has spoken with RadarOnline.com to explain what she says went down between her and Ochocinco, which apparently included "a heated affair" that she alleges Johnson did very little to hide from Lozada:
"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.'"
Chad Johnson, 34, was released from jail in Florida on Sunday after posting $2,500 bond.
