Ochocinco robbed, most upset about losing Starbucks card

New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco had his Cadillac Escalade broken into Wednesday and noticed his credit cards, driver's license, and iPod were all missing but the thing that he was really worried about was his Starbucks card.

Ochocinco was headed to a workout at Gillette Stadium when he was informed he could not get access due to restrictions in the new collective bargaining agreement.  Instead, he went to IHOP to get breakfast and— when he returned to his SUV— he found out someone had broken into it.


An angry and visibly upset Ochocinco went to Twitter and— in a two-minute video— let his followers know how mad he was about his losses— especially the Starbucks Gold card.

"I earned the gold card," Ochocinco said.  "You know how many coffees I've had to drink and lemon loafs I've had to purchase to get that gold card? Like, I had $220 left on my Starbucks card.  Not just any Starbucks card, but a gold Starbucks card."

The crushed Ochocinco's day took a positive turn after one of his Twitter followers said her mother had found his wallet in Providence, R.I. and it still contained his credit cards and license.

Sadly, the Starbucks gold card was missing.  Still, there was a happy ending after the company tweeted that they would send him a replacement card.

  1. Cry me a river. Boo hoo. I only make millions a year and someone stole my starbucks card. Welcome to the real world Ochocinco. I wish when my vehicle got broken into the only thing they stole was a coffee card.
