Michelle Williams Says She Thought Chad Johnson Was Black
Michelle Williams and Chad Johnson are continuing to speak on their sweet swirly romance.
The couple who stars on OWN’s “Chad Loves Michelle“, stopped by Radio One to break down their coupledom. According to the lovebirds they initially dated for four months without seeing each other because Michelle lived in Chicago and Chad lived in Pittsburgh.
Michelle Williams: “Originally in our relationship, we have only spent like a week together maybe during the holidays because I lived in Chicago, he lived in Pittsburgh then I moved to L.A. He is now still based in Phoneix until we are married.”
Chad Johnson: “Our relationship was really built on communication for the first four months. We didn’t go on a date or anything, we would talk, text, Facetime…”
They also spoke candidly on using premarital counseling and they’re actively ignoring negative comments about them in the media. Remember when viewers accused Chad Johnson of throwing Michelle’s mental illness in her face?
Michelle Williams: “We were taken aback about how many people don’t do marital counseling. Our episodes are based around the theme of the premarital sessions. I should’ve known better, I didn’t think of the public perception and them running with a soundbite or anything. I don’t know the specifics of what’s out there or being said. We want our relationship to be at peace.”
Chad Johnson: “As long as we’re good it doesn’t matter what the world thinks…”
In a funny quip during the interview, Michelle also agreed with fans who initially thought Chad was black. Chad is white, but when Michelle first met him she almost told Beyonce’s mom Tina Lawson that he was Creole like her.
Chad Johnson: “It’s astounding to me that people are so opinionated about something they don’t know anything about. People are so lit up about a black woman and a white man…”
[Producer offf camera] “I always thought you were light skinned…”
Michelle Williams: “Imma be honest too, when I first met him I was like ‘Oooooh he Creole!’ And he was like, ‘No ma’am.’ And I was like, ‘Aww man, I thought it was gonna be exciting when I went and told Miss Tina that you’re Creole cause she’s Creole.
