The fallout continue for newly-released Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. The VH1 network has cancelled his upcoming reality show ‘Ev & Ocho’ after learning of his arrest for domestic abuse.

The first season of the reality series, already filmed, was slated to begin airing on Sept. 3. That all changed when the NFL player landed in jail for assaulting his new wife Evelyn Lozada.

VH1 released a statement, “Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev & Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plan to air it.”

The show was supposed to “document the journey of this charismatic and passionate couple’s every step, as they prepare to walk down the aisle and into each other’s hearts forever.”

Lozada and Johnson exchanged vows on July 4th in St. Martin – check out their wedding photo below:
