Chad Johnson is reportedly furious over a newly leaked adult film, featuring himself and two unidentified females, and a new report claims the NFL star is now considering taking legal action against those behind it.
Johnson, formerly known as Ochocinco, has not yet spoken publicly regarding the matter although sources close to him confirmed Tuesday that he is in fact featured in the pornographic film. It has been described as being "substantial in length," and was allegedly made three years ago, according to TMZ.com.
The 34-year-old father of four is said to be baffled as to how the film surfaced and he is reportedly adamant that he never wanted the homemade film to be made public.
Things appear to be getting worse for Johnson, who has had a difficult year stemming from a domestic incident involving his former wife Evelyn Lozada. The former Miami Dolphins star entered a plea of no contest to domestic assault charges in September after head-butting Lozada during a dispute just one month after their wedding.
As a result of his legal woes, Johnson was dropped by the Dolphins and served with divorce papers by Lozada, 37. He is also currently facing financial woes as a result of losing his lucrative football deal.
Lozada took to social networking site Twitter on Monday where she went on a rant about betrayal. Her tweets have prompted speculation about whether the "Basketball Wives" star is friends with either of the women that are featured in the tape with Johnson, and whether she was involved with him when the tape was made.
"Never tell 'friends' every detail about your life, understand that not everybody has good intentions," Lozada tweeted Dec. 24.
"You know the sad thing about betrayal? It never comes from an enemy," another tweet read.
