With his marriage from Evelyn Lozada only a memory, NFL star Chad Ochocinco is moving on. The reality star and the football player divorced last year after an altercation where he was arrested for allegedly head butting her. But, don’t worry about Chad: looks like he is coping just fine. While being allegedly romantically linked to several women, Chad is now dating Lauren Pompeil. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
Lauren has posted several photos on her Instagram account of Chad and herself on a romantic Valentine’s day vacation in Madrid, Spain, and the two have been seen cuddling up at soccer matches during their stay. Lauren has been sending out lots of tweets and posting lots of adorable Twitter photos of the couple.
If her name sounds familiar, it probably is. Thirty year old Lauren is the daughter of Ron Pompeil, of Ronco infomercial fame. She is also the head chef and CEO of Pompeil Cuisine. She went to high school in San Bernardino California, but she then headed to Orlando, Florida to attend Le Cordon Bleu University of Culinary Arts.
Lauren has also appeared with her famous father in several Ronco informercials over the years. She’s been in the press briefly before, when she was spotted at a night club with none other than Justin Timberlake back in 2006, when JT was dating Cameron Diaz.
You can’t argue the fact that Lauren is a smart cookie, a successful businesswoman and it is nice that she tries to stay out of the spotlight, and doesn’t seem like she really likes being the center of attention. We’re guessing for Chad Ochocinco, this is a nice change of pace! His exes are famous for loving the spotlight!
It remains to be seen if the relationship between Lauren and Chad will last. At the moment things seem to be just peachy, with Lauren calling him “my boy Chad” and tweeted, “Couldn’t be happier!!!! Thanks Chad!!!! Kisses!” However, several different sources say that they are not so sure that Chad is really committed to Miss Pompeil. TMZ recently posted a video of Chad canoodling on a Miami beach with a brunette chick who is most definitely NOT Lauren.
No word on who that mystery chick is, but time will tell if things between Chad and Lauren are getting serious, or if he is just playing the field and enjoying the single life. Don’t forget that before Lauren and mystery beach chick, Chad was supposedly chasing a married meteorologist so we know that he is for sure ready to get back out there on the dating scene.
