It appears Chad Johnson is headed down the same road as his close friend, Terrell Owens. Similar to Owens, who is also an unrestricted free agent, the six-time NFL pro bowler was recently slapped with a summons to appear in court due to child support payments.

TMZ reports that the mother of Johnson’s child, Andrea Pearson, has filed legal documents in Miami claiming the free agent receiver missed his October 15th payment of $5,250 and admitted that she doesn’t have enough income to support the child.

Though Pearson has made it clear that Johnson has a consistent pattern of being delinquent with payments, sources close to him tell the site that he has always provided for the two-year-old and went out on a limb by purchasing Pearson a home.

Johnson’s recent legal woes come only two months after he finalized his divorce to reality star, Evelyn Lozada.
