St. Martin Demands Back $90K Paid To Chad & Evelyn To Have Wedding There
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for these two!!
The government of Saint Martin has said it expects a refund of the money it spent on the Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada‘s island wedding.
The Caribbean island nation agreed to foot part of the bill for the couple’s wedding in anticipation that the publicity generated from the duo’s reality TV wedding special would bring more tourists.
Now the couple is being asked to return the $90,000 that they were paid to celebrate their big day, since their VH1 show has now been cancelled after a domestic violence incident in which Chad left Evelyn with a cut forehead, which prompted his arrested and her filing for divorce.
Saint Martin Finance Minister Roland Tuit says:
“When someone is investing in business it’s a risk they are taking and if something happens then they will have to deal with the consequences. Naturally, we have a contract with Johnson and Lozada and that contract has some clauses inside of it and St. Maarten will use those clauses if necessary.”
According to the Saint Martin News, Prime Minister Sarah Wescot Williams was against making money available for the reality show show wedding.
Bottom line: If VH1 doesn’t ever air the Ev & Ocho wedding special, the Saint Martin government will take legal action against Chad & Ev to get it’s $90,000 back.
