Chad Johnson, a former NFL wide receiver who was cut prior to this season by the Miami Dolphins, has confirmed to TMZ that a video now going viral on the Internet does indeed show him having sex with two women.
But Johnson says the explicit video was actually shot about three years ago in Florida. He claims that he has no idea how it ended up online.
Ironically, the Toronto Sun notes that Johnson quipped to reporters this summer that if he didn’t make it onto the roster of an NFL team this season, he was “thinking about going into porn.”
Despite the remark, Johnson is looking for a legal recourse to stop the video’s distribution.
In 2008, Johnson had his named legally changed to Chad Ochocinco, to reflect his jersey number “85.” He changed his name back to Johnson earlier this year.
