Legal action may be taken against estranged couple Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada if they fail to abide by the contract they signed with the government of St. Maarten.

Johnson and Lozada were paid $90,000 by St. Maarten for their wedding to be held on the island on July 4th. The government of St. Maarten entered into a contract with the couple with hopes to help boost tourism for its island, SMNN reports. St. Maarten knew the televised nuptials on VH1 would generate publicity that would further boost the island’s tourism economy.

But now that the show has been shelved, St. Maarten will not get the publicity it was promised. The Council of Ministers have not commented publicly if it intends to retrieve the tax-payers’ money if the contract is not upheld. But Minister Roland Tuitt believes its inevitable if the Ev & Ocho show is not aired.

“When someone is investing in business it’s a risk they are taking and if something happens then they will have to deal with the consequences,” Minister Roland Tuitt told SMNN. “Naturally, we have a contract with Johnson and Lozada and that contract has some clauses inside of it and St. Maarten will use those clauses if necessary.”
