Just six months ago, Chad Ochocinco was arrested for head-butting Evelyn Lozada after his wife found a condom receipt in their car and exploded on him.
Now disgraced, divorced and out of an NFL job ... he's dating Lauren Popeil, CEO of Popeil Cuisine! Talk about the right recipe for Valentine's Day love!
The lovebirds grabbed lunch at Le Pain de Quotidien before watching the Real Madrid vs. Manchester United match in Madrid, Spain this week.
Lauren Popeil tweeted:
"On my way to the Real Madrid vs. Manchester United match with my boy Chad... Having the best time!!! No better way to spend Valentines week!"
"Couldn't be happier!!!! Thanks Chad!!!! Kisses!"
Meanwhile, Chad opted out of re-tweeting his enthusiastic new girlfriend's couple shots and wrote the following message to his 4.7 million followers:
"Happy Valentines to all 504 n a possible of my girlfriends, no gift is greater than being a part of my spontaneous, unpredictable weird life."
Tread carefully, Lauren.
