NBA star says Evelyn Lozada ran off after the money ran out

By  | 

Is Evelyn Lozada a misunderstood abuse survivor or a sneaky gold digger who runs from man-to-man in order to suck out his financial blood?  Well, it depends on who you ask.  Evelyn is known for being the most violent member of the show “Basketball Wives,” but has also made a nice career for herself as a celebrity girlfriend.  She just had a baby with MLB star Carl Crawford, who signed a recent contract earning $20 million dollars per year.  This is not her first high-profile athlete relationship.  She’s also dated Chad Johnson, who is now broke.  Before Chad, there was Antoine Walker, who is now also broke.

Is this a coincidence or is Evelyn the Black Widow among wealthy athletes?   John Harris at The BOSS Sports Network has an article on the topic, speaking about Antoine Walker’s claim that Evelyn is hardly the loyal fiancee.  According to Walker, when he filed for bankruptcy, Evelyn didn’t stand with him as a good wife would.  Instead, she ran for the hills to find green pastures (and bank accounts).  Read more of what John has to say:

BY:  John “Hennry” Harris

Before Evelyn Lozada became “famous” on the reality show Basketball Wives, before her and Chad Ochocinco ever became a reality show train wreck, before Evelyn hit the jackpot by having a baby with Carl Crawford and his $142 million baseball contract, Lozada was in a 10-year relationship with Antoine Walker.  

Walker, who has made over $100 million in his basketball career, was engaged to Lozada, admits that he easily spent a “couple of million” on his ex-fiancèe and even her family benefited from his generosity, but when he fell on hard times financially he accuses her of bouncing on him and never looking back.

antoineevelynIn an interview with the “Russ Parr Morning Show” he claims Lozada was happy with him and living well when he had money.evelynocho

“My thing with Evelyn is she reaped a lot of benefits of my wealth. And when it got tight, she chose to go a different direction. So that’s the problem that I have with Evelyn. That’s more personal…

I dated Evelyn for 10 years. In 1999, I signed my ninth deal in 1999. So she got to reap the full benefits of the whole process. She played her part. You think someone will have your back and that’s my whole thing. Evelyn went on with her reality show and we all know all her relationships she’s been in since me. It hasn’t been about let me make sure Antoine is okay. So that’s a big difference. That’s why I have a problem with Evelyn. It’s more personal. It’s tough when you take care of some people and you make sure that they’re good, their family, their daughters and then they just go left field.

We got engaged in 2007. We broke up for a minute so that’s what delayed the marriage, and towards the end, she left when things hit the fan.”

Lozada recalls things a little bit differently, citing Walker’s cheating ways as the reason she left.




















If you have seen the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary Broke, you are familiar with the story of how years of high-stakes gambling, bad business deals, frivolous spending and an insatiable entourage sapped Walker’s earnings of over $100 million to him filing for bankruptcy in 2010.

Antoine Walker is now promoting his documentary called Gone In An Instant which details the rise and fall of his fame and fortune.  Walker hopes that through his film, he can keep other NBA players from making the same mistakes that he did.

“I wanted to be one of the ones to step in front of my story and tell of how I ended up losing my wealth and make it a positive thing. I think sometimes everybody looks at it as a negative thing, but I want to make it a positive thing and one, let people know how I lost my wealth, but also educate the new guys coming into the league and make sure they don’t make the mistakes that I made.”

    He should’ve known it was because of his money. A trick is a trick. Those boys should stick with women who look like their grandmother,mothers,and sisters.They get what they paid for-a show piece. The show is over.

    Umm… I’m no fan of Evelyn, but she was with dude for 10 years. That’s hardly a “pretend” relationship. How do we know if she’s a gold digger, she was with dude for a decade (and he didn’t even marry her in all of that time) and stayed with him. Maybe the relationship ran it’s course. 10 years is a long time.

      She stayed because the money was still coming in. She didn’t care if he married her or not as long as her, her family and her daughter (who didn’t belong to him) was still being taken care of. Remember when Chad told her he didn’t know if he coudl be honest and say he would never cheat on her and she said “as long as you tell me and not let me find out about it.” So she didn’t leave because he cheated, she left because the money stop flowing. How can you say, she is not a gold digger? Look at her timeline.Give her time for this new goofy looking guy to run out of money (and those days do come for these athletes). She will run for the hills. Who will be her next come up victim?

    If you are going marry then marry a woman from overseas country but not from Russia…anyways do not marry an Americanized woman because she is about money over love and happiness

    @Lucius: interesting comment…and I think it is true. @Phillip Battle -so it that to say that men in the limelight should go for more ordinary looking women rather than the dime piece? I mean…some men’s sisters and aunts may be fine as h€!!
    Listening to this man’s interview, he had lots of property and businesses, but did not have the time to watch them. Kind of sad that Evelyn( or any woman) could not do that for him. But…he did not think enough of her to marry her, either. The carrot and stick method can only be effective for so long. How come it takes Black men so long to marry folks? It seems like they are always thinking about what they will miss…

    Why is it that these black athletes don’t complain when their white “gold diggers” take them for astronomical amounts of amounts of money. Kareem, Tiger Woods, and scores of other black athletes are mute after they pay their departed white trophies. They don’t call these strategically enriched white women names after they leave. They don’t disparage the character of their white women who made it clear in the beginning, that they were willing to sell their wares for money. These black men only disparage black women for doing the same things that they willingly pay white women to do.

    Have you noticed that black athletes only refer to black women as “gold diggers.” It clear that self-loathing black men, in general, understand and agree that they have to pay lots of money to get trophy white women, and have to be willing to give these white women whatever they want when they marry them and produce children that don’t look like themselves – when they assist these black men in committing what I call “genetic suicide.” These particular black men, intentionally don’t want to produce children who are fully black.

    Yet when many black athletes break up with a black woman who has departed enriched from her relationship, the black athlete goes public to devalue his relationship with her, and to tell the world that she got money from him she wasn’t suppose to have.
    In other words,” black women don’t deserve my money.”

    Here’s a suggestion – pretend she’s white, and shut up!

      Jessica? You hit the nail right on the head!! These Black athletes and entertainers will take a bullet for the white gold diggers!! If Michael Jordan worked at UPS or the Post Office, the white girl he just married wouldn’t give him the time of day!! Black men need to wake the hell up!! Don’t you realize that once you’ve taken care of her entire family, and she’s had a couple of kids by you, she’s going to file for divorce and child support and try to BREAK you!! When star Black athletes hit college campuses on their visits, the athletic department ALWAYS has the white cheerleaders to meet and greet them!! The blond blue-eyed cheerleaders!!Most of the athletes don’t even SEE any Black women on their visits! Nobody has figured out yet that the white man PLANS to get his hands on all those millions one way or the other. When the white girl files for divorce, the athlete has to pay HER lawyers as well as his own!! Think about THIS!! The white man gets MOST of that money back after the white girl divorces the dumb ass Black athlete! Michael Jordan’s white wife made him get his vasectomy reversed so she could have a baby!! It’s Michael Jordan’s bad luck that the bitch had TWINS!! DUMB….DUMB….DUMB!!!!!! (SMH)

        Doesn’t MJ look like a pitiful intellectually deficient old black
        self-loather who is willing to pay millions upon millions to a young “not black” woman to produce the children “he really wanted” all along. What an insult to his “real children.”

        Black athletes and entertainers seem willing to sacrifice their dignity, their all-black children, all real connections to black family and black communities, and gladly forfeit their fortunes in order to supply themselves with their highly preferred, lethal drug of choice – white gold digger’s p_ssy juice.

      the problem with these idiots is they pick these women that they would have no chance of getting if they worked at Burger King, you tricked out you knew you had to pay when you got in the relationship and didn’t have a problem for 10 YEARS you DUMB BASTARD, quit calling the sister a gold digger, you are the gold digger you stupid person, if shes a gold digger that means she dug up some dirt to find your lame broke ass, sit down shut up and find you a job, you not smart as hole!

    They don’t’ complain about white women taking their money because they think that the white woman will be with them for ever until they possibly get tired and want another one. When the hell are they ever going to learn? When it comes down to money, Black Nigger Men stupid as shit. White women are ALL about money! They know black men are stupid. They don’t have the brains of a cock roach. Get him, have a baby, marry them if you can, hey money, money, money. that’s a white woman for you. And like I said a sister got her share this time, you go girl! They are too embarrassed to announce to the public how they got used by a white woman, but announce to the world about a sister. See stupid.

    Jeana, so true. If it were a white woman he would not have dated her for 10yrs, he’d have married her, within three months, he’s a habitual cheater so why stay when he’s broke, they weren’t married so there’s nothing to benefit her. You don’t hang around for ten years as a gold digger. You get in get it all and go.

      I don’t agree about that not sticking around part… If it were you and he had 100 million bucks and you could spend freely you would stick around too. She didn’t care if cheated he had that money and when it was all gone so was she.. Don’t let her fool you talking about she left because he was a cheater bull crap.. Poor Mr. Crawford..

    These $40 million dollar slaves don’t have to say “no.” They have to say no to those that are playing you. You have to exercise common sense, especially with your family and good and real black women instead of trophy con artists.

    And, why not help out the black community’s needs to uplift those who you used to be instead of throwing it at those who don’t need it as they are easily collecting it from folks like the ignorant, self loathing nouveau riche blacks who have no one to snub but those who look like them before they had “arrived.᤾”

    Sometimes losing onea wealth can save one’s life, and even make one appreciate THE LITTLE THINGS MORE. Many of these Athlete’s do not the GAME of financially prosperity. How many talk to Magic Johnson, Kevin Johnson, and Sir Charles Barkley? Is Dr. J broke, or the Admiral? No, these men somehow knew that one day, the well would dry up, and built financial irragation and storage systems (Savings and Investments).I learned in the Army over 26 years ago, PRIOR PLANNING PREVENTS POOR PERFORMANCE. Igive much admiration for him opening up, but let this be a lesdon, at least be married before ine goes HAM in splurging lavish gifts about……

    P.S. – Anyone who blows $110 million and is not an industrialist or corporate mogul is just plain stupid, as are most of the blACk males. T

    They love no one more than those who hate them and hate no one more than those who give them birth and/or look like them. They’re STUPID oafs.

    I agree with the other commentators, I’m at least glad a blACk woman got a piece of the bounty for a change, even if they still have to be light, bright, darn near white, preferably with blonde hair weave of course.

    No one made her stay with him for 10 yrs. She didn’t mind staying with him for a decade not being married. Guess the money was the main factor. Women need to start being responsible for their own actions.

    Mr. Walker you made enough money to turn the south-side of Chicago around, instead you blew it and have “NOTHING “to show for it. Don’t blame it on her or any other woman. It was your damn money. You should have invested it property and kept some of your family members off the payroll. Invest, save and spend.
