Chad Johnson, 34, was spotted this week eating lunch with actress turned fitness guru AJ Johnson, 49, in West Hollywood.
The two were photoed eating side by side and enjoying casual conversation out on what many assume was a date.
This comes only weeks after his divorce with Evelyn Lozada was finalized.
The two didn't shy away from from the cameras either, in fact, Chad stuck his tongue out at photographers.
However, the two deny any love connection and claim they are partnering to work on Chad's life.
Chad confirmed this when he tweeted:
"Working with the great @THEAJZONE on getting my life back in the right space mentally, got a long way to go… Tear Down to Rebuild."
In response, AJ tweeted:
"@ochocinco we have work 2 do but you fearlessly knowing this is MAJOR! Thnk u 4 ur trust/honesty/openess! I'm proud of u already!xo."
