Jacinth Preston recently filed a lawsuit in Broward County, Florida against the troubled 34-year-old, alleging that he has not paid him for managing services at his Florida home including "cleaners, landscaping, (and) decorating," according to new reports.

Preston has requested $130,000 in compensation to cover his salary, landscaping, and cleaning, among other things, according to Yahoo UK.

The lawsuit reports come just days after it was revealed that Johnson, who was recently terminated by the Miami Dolphins, is facing foreclosure on his Miami, FL. home because he allegedly owes at least $28,000 in back payments.

Things appear to be getting worse for Johnson, who was recently slapped with divorce papers as well as domestic assault charges after allegedly head butting his estranged wife, Evelyn Lozada, during a dispute.

Lozada, 37, filed for divorce from Johnson after just 40 days of marriage over the incident despite reports that he is desperate to salvage the marriage.

The "Basketball Wives" star recently released her first public statement regarding the incident in which she slammed Johnson for allegedly lying to police about what occurred and suggesting that she was the aggressor.

"I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me," Lozada told TMZ.com. "It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well."

The pair could potentially be sued for approximately $90,000 by the St. Maarten government after allegedly breaching a wedding contract.

The government of St. Maarten allegedly entered into a formal agreement with the estranged couple in which they agreed to have their wedding aired on VH1 in the U.S.

Following Lozada's divorce filing, the VH1 network recently confirmed that the estranged couple's upcoming reality TV show "Ev & Ocho" has been canceled and therefore will no longer air in September as previously scheduled.
