Dating a celebrity is a very profitable move for a boss chick.
After dating Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson for 2-years “Selling Tampa” star Sharelle Rosado now has her own tv show with raving reviews.
The couple is now engaged and expecting their first child together, a baby girl, soon.Rosado says she never imagined that she would end up with Chad.
“Never in a million years did I think that we would be together today,” Rosado told Page Six before explaining how she slid in the former NFL player’s DMs on social media.
“He was talking to Tom Brady at the time on his Instagram, and I sent [him] heart eyes and 30 seconds later, he responded back, and then it went from there.”
Rosado, the owner of Allure Realty, has three other children from a previous relationship. Meanwhile, Johnson has seven kids with six other women. She said she was aware of her fiancé’s troubled past with women, including a domestic violence case with his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, in 2012.
“It wasn’t a concern,” the real estate broker told Page Six. “You never know what goes on between things. I don’t want to speak on that because I wasn’t there, but Chad is a great person.”
She added, “People go through things, people make mistakes, and you learn from them. If you base things off of mistakes that people made then you’ll never make it in life. Nobody’s perfect.”
Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozado were together between 2010 and 2012. A month after they tied the knot on July 4, 2012, police responded to a domestic dispute after the Miami native headbutted Lozada after an argument, resulting in her getting stitches in her forehead.
Johnson took a plea deal with prosecutors, resulting in a sentence of one-year probation. His arrest led to his release from the Miami Dolphins, and tarnished his career in the NFL.
The former wide receiver touched on his mistakes during the domestic battery case during a Q&A on Twitter in July 2020.
“I lost my temper for once in my life for 3 seconds & it cost me a lifetimes worth of work,” Johnson wrote in response to a fan. “I got it all back plus some after getting a 2nd chance and NOTHING will ever get me out of that happy space again…”
In response to his tweet, Lozada was triggered and shared her frustration in a nearly six-minute Instagram video on July 16. The former “Basketball Wives” star fought back tears while describing the pattern of abuse she says she endured from Johnson.
“It wasn’t the first time; it wasn’t the first time,” she revealed. “And one of the things that I’m always going to do is I’m always going to live in my truth, whether it’s good, whether it’s bad, whether it’s ugly. I’m not going to let anybody take away my fu–ing truth.”
Lozada added, “This is a lot for me and I just want to heal and I just want to move on from this situation. So if we’re going to speak about this situation, we can talk about the truth. We can be honest and we can talk about everything that happened if you really want to discuss it.”
If I’m simply being a good Christian woman reporting, I will agree with Rosado about forgiveness. But as a woman who once experienced abuse in a prior lifetime, I know that person continued to hit women. So it is what it is.
More so, the part that we can learn from this story is that Rosado, shot her shot at Chad and jumped in his DM’s. So If you want an allstar player, it may be best to hop in his DM’s and make him aware of you. Which makes sense for Rosado, she looks like Evelyn and nearly even has the last name. So she was definitely his type.
Secondly, Rosado now has her own tv show after dating Chad. So regardless her life is improving. We can judge her, we can say whatever we want. But the bottom line is Sis is getting to the bag and leaving a legacy. There are many women in abusive relationships with non popular/non wealthy men and their kids will not inherit generational wealth.
I’m not condoning anything, I’m simply stating the facts of reality.
