Whether all the rumors that are piling up are true or not, Chad Johnson’s reputation is getting worse by the day. Johnson was previously seen as an eccentric guy who likes to have fun and may piss off the NFL commissioner every now and then but has never been in any significant trouble. That was before he was arrested for domestic violence, cut from the Dolphins, stripped of his VH1 show and accused of cheating on his estranged wife multiple times.

Now, a recent report form RadarOnline.com claims that Johnson was not only cheating on Evelyn Lozada while they were engaged, he was also paying the rent of his aspiring model and stripper girlfriend Amber Priddy.

“Chad has been paying Amber $2,000 a month for her apartment and flying her in and out of Miami so they could meet up,” a source reportedly told the magazine. “He would tell Evelyn that he was going out to run errands in the day time and just hook up with one of his women instead. It was easier for him to hide when they lived in separate cities but after Chad was traded to Miami in June his philandering literally got too close to home and he got caught.”

Priddy, who tweeted things like “U can marry him but he’s still mine!!!” when Lozada and Johnson tied the knot, is denying that she had an affair with Johnson and that he paid her rent.

“Damn these blogs are crazy smh,” she wrote on Twitter. “Because I’m moving they wanna say I’m getting evicted. Lmao. And no Chad Johnson doesn’t pay my rent.”

Separating truth from rumor is impossible at this point now that everyone is piling on Chad, but he hasn’t exactly done much to earn the benefit of the doubt over the past couple of weeks.
