More troubles for Chad Ochocinco? You can say that again. The football star, who allegedly head-butted his wife Evelyn Lozada, is being hit with a bill to the tune of $90,000. The government of Saint Martin agreed to foot part of the bill for their wedding, expecting publicity it would generate once the duo's TV series Ev & Ocho was on air.

But now, due to the serious incident, the show has been canceled, and Saint Martin is demanding its money back. 

"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," Saint Martin Finance Minister Roland Tuit told RadarOnline.com. "Naturally, we have a contract with Johnson and that contract has some clauses inside of it and St. Maartin will use those clauses if necessary."

An official source told us that Evelyn had never signed a contract and was unaware that a deal was even made. 

According to the Saint Martin News, Prime Minister Sarah Wescot Williams was against providing money for the ceremony in the first place. 

What do you think of this situation? Should Chad have to give back the money? Share in the comments!
