NFL veteran Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson's domestic violence arrest over the weekend has cost the wide receiver his new VH1 reality show.

VH1 Monday said it is pulling its upcoming Ev and Ocho series from its lineup after the Miami Dolphins star was arrested Saturday for allegedly head-butting his new wife Eve Lozada, with whom he was to appear in the reality show set to debut Sept. 3.  Lozada was one of the stars of VH1's Basketball Wives reality show.

The Miami Dolphins released Johnson due to the incident.

"Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev and Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it," said network officials.
