Disgraced NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson hasn’t given up on love, even though his marriage to Evelyn Lozada ended in disaster.
The newly divorced 35-year-old sure looked romantic with Lauren Popeil, CEO of Popeil Cuisine, the heiress to infomercial king Ron Popeil, while on a trip to Spain. He returned to Miami Friday after spending time doing fun things like taking in a Real Madrid soccer match with her.
Lauren posted several Instagrams as proof. But a source close to the chef tells TMZ she and Chad are just “friends.”

A Parkland teen who plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010 is getting some help from . . . wait for it . . . Charlie Sheen.
Teagan Marti suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries when nets and air bags that were supposed to catch riders on the free-fall ride were not raised. She was paralyzed initially but through physical therapy is now able to walk with a walker. A Marti family friend asked Sheen for $6,000 to cover therapy dog training, and Sheen wired $10,000 on Thursday. Sheen told the AP he likes to “pay it forward.”
The 15-year-old didn’t know much about the former Two and a Half Men star but now thinks pretty highly of him.
The murders of Fontainebleau heir Ben Novack Jr. and his mother Bernice Novack, as well as the conviction of Ben’s wife Narcy Novack, are going to be explored in the 10 p.m. Monday episode of True Crime with Aphrodite Jones on Investigation Discovery.
