Call Of Duty Makes For The Most Un-Romantic Marriage Proposal Ever

When people with money get married, a heavily manicured, storybook ceremony is to be expected because it's a public appearance of some sort. It's what takes place in private that is truly revelatory and Chad Ochocinco, noted gamer and iconoclast NFL star, apparently couldn't put down his controller when he popped the question to Evelyn Lozada.

Lest you think this is some kind of cute gaming-themed proposal, which we've featured here before, it doesn't sound like that at all. Speaking to Yahoo! Music, Lozada, the former "Basketball Wives" reality show star, said she didn't even know Ochocinco had proposed marriage to her until after she put the ring on herself.

Ochocinco told Lozada he called a jeweler over to the house, something she took to mean as he was planning on buying watches. "Jason from Beverly Hills gets to the house. He pulls out some rings. … Chad has his headset on 'cause he likes playing Call of Duty, FIFA, all of that stuff," Lozada told Yahoo! Music.

Ochocinco asked her which one she liked. Lozada said, "I don't know, this one," picking one out of a separate box and putting it on. "He goes, 'Alright, so we're engaged.'" she said. And Ochocinco went right back to shooting people in CoD. Never even took off his headset. Makes me wonder if he left his mike open, or if he said anything to his teammates or adversaries about it.

The two are scheduled to be married on July 4.

    Wow.. She must have felt great after that..

      Agreed, but I bet he has a lot of money so she wouldn't care. Also, if he can't bare the thought of putting down CoD, how will he cope during the ceremony?

        Plan an explosion maybe? Put the priest in camo! Have the church choirboys loudly question his sexuality!


      She's marrying money.

      She won't care

    Sounds like he's going to be an absolutely caring husband.

    "Yo yo, we is now engaged shorty, now be quiet and watch me teabag this guy"... and they say romance is dead. :P

    Well you just know thats gonna last

    That's not even being a tool, that's being a coward. Too afraid to look someone in the eye and show some level of commitment. Makes me wonder about the level of self-respect that woman has to just put up with that instead of walking away from an obvious train wreck. Normal decent people don't even have conversations like that, let alone propose marriage.

    What a lucky girl!

    I guess when you're crazy wealthy, you can treat someone like that and they'll still marry you. And tell it to people in interviews like it's a normal thing.

    I blame Cod.

    lmao if she doesnt like it, pretty sure he would have 100 other girls ready to take her place and be happy in a relationship based off how much cash he has... lets be honest, no money, no story, cos there'd be no relationship to start with...

    Why the hell would anyone want to marry a dickhead like that?
