Chad Ochocinco: Changing Name Back to Chad Johnson!

by at . Comments

Get ready to say goodbye to Chad Ochocinco.

No, the NFL star is not retiring (although that can't be too far off, given his waning effectiveness), he's just planning to change his last name back to Chad Johnson.

Seriously. After the ridiculous production involved in legally changing his last name to Ochocinco, Chad's changing it back just in time for his wedding this summer.

The reason? He doesn't want his wife to have a made-up last name. Noble. But couldn't she just stay Evelyn Lozada instead of being Mrs. Johnson or Ochocinco?

Chad Johnson, Evelyn Lozada

Ocho's wedding to his Basketball Wives fiancee is set for July in Florida, and the Patriots wide receiver plans to legally be Chad Johnson again by that time.

For her part, Evelyn swears she doesn't care what name she ends up with, and that the choice is entirely up to Chad ... but he is doing it for her, he says.

The only downside? Chad's legal fees, and how much it sucks for all of you who bought Ochocinco jerseys, though now at least they'll be a collector's item.

Evelyn Lozada and Chad recently postponed their wedding amid a firestorm of rumors that they were on the rocks, but apparently it's back on. Hooray.

Steve, keep your racist ass comments to yourself. Not all black people are poor. Don't act like you aren't aware of the injustice and equality in the wealth system of Americans. Blacks and whites are NOT ALWAYS given the same equal chance. Don't be ignorant.

only a black athlete would think it was cool to change his name to something as stupid as ochocinco. surprised he didnt change it to a normal black name like latreesha, lasqueesha, taleesha, lapeesha. this is why black people are poor - they finally get money and spend it on stupid shit. in no time we'll read about him in same boat as wesley snipes, not paying his taxes. this is why we should not pay these idiot athletes so much money, it is a waste.

Why go to all the trouble?? What a dumbass. His last name literally means 8.....5. Not 85. Your as washed up as T.O.
