Waiting like a love vulture: NFL head case Chad Johnson!

Reeves, 31, filed for divorce in a Broward County court Jan. 23, less than two years after she was married in her native Louisiana.

And already, ex-Miami Dolphins receiver Johnson is asking her out, according to TV biz insiders.

Reeves and her husband separated in August, and she filed a simplified form for folks with no children together and no property.

Within days, however, the Twitter account of fellow NBC 6 hottie Christina Hernandez, a friend of the wide receiver formerly known as Ochocinco, was inundated with Johnson’s questions about Reeves’ availability!

Johnson himself went through his high publicized divorce from reality TV star Evelyn Lozada.

It’s unclear whether Reeves took the bait yet, but we’ll stay on the story.

Reeves’ husband, meanwhile, is heart-broken.

“Unfortunately, she did file,” said her soon-to-be-ex, 39-year-old Brad Reeves. “We had a great marriage, so this was not my choice. Sometimes, things don’t work out between two people.”

Brad says he and Jennifer had different ideas of what their marriage should be. He’s about children and family, she’s about her career.

Brad owns a boat rental business based near the Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood. He came down with skin cancer right after the weekend meteorologist left him.

“I’ve have three surgeries since,” he said. “I still love her to death. She means the world to me.”

When told about Johnson’s interest in his wife, Brad Reeves just said: “Good lord!”

Jennifer didn’t return calls and emails for comment.

    Why would you even give credibility to the ridiculous fantasies of a predatory idiot? Chad Johnson probably lusts after every white woman who rates over a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. Unfortunately, the liberal media have been encouraging this behavior for about 40 years. How nice for her family to hear that this dumb a** wants to get into her pants– as if that wasn’t already a given! Let us know how Tiger Woods feels about her, too, would you?

    My sympathies to you Brad. You sound like a good guy. I know EXACTLY where you’re coming from and what you’re dealing with. Younger hottie who is seeking the limelight and doesn’t want a hubby or kids cramping her style. Been there my friend! Stings and sucks. But, nothing you can do about it except keep your head up and move along. And by your comments, I can tell you’ll do just that. Oh, and that “limelight and greener pasteurs” they seek… it never really gets that much brighter or that much greener. But they have to learn that themselves, oftentimes the hard way. I wish you the best of luck!
