If you’re ever up late on a Sunday night slash Monday Morning, you’ve probably seen the infomercial for Feed The Children starring Ocho Cinco himself, Chad Johnson.
Recently, I debated with someone about whether Johnson was a character guy —character enough to be a Philadelphia Eagle. Chad, the previous week, really didn’t help my cause when he allegedly push reporters out of the way during this year’s Pro Bowl. Well, I thought I had to best talking point yet by claiming that Chad Johnson being a spokesperson for Feed The Children, especially when he didn’t have to, makes him an aight guy. But then I started Googling.
Apparently, he isn’t that bad. Chad has four children: Jicyra, Chad Jr., Chade and Chaiel. According to the Bengals organization, he’s on point with his. I Googled and Lexis-Nexis’d the mess out of this one and couldn’t find any public — emphasis on public — records regarding Chad and his children.
Floating around online, however, are conflicting stories. Certain blogs are stating that there are indeed four kids by two mothers, others are saying 3 illegitimate children. While they empathize the idea that Chad make babies, none of them suggest that he’s not a good father.
At this point, I consider this still an open investigation. Deep down, I know that Chad takes care of his responsibilities and is a good dad. We’ll see what pops up in the future.
