“She Reaped A Lot Of Benefits Of My Wealth”: Antoine Walker Calls Out Evelyn Lozada For Leaving Him After He Went Broke

July 30, 2014  |  


10 years.

That’s how long Antoine Walker claims that he was in a relationship with former fiancée, Evelyn Lozada. During that time, Walker was a big NBA player, best known for the years he spent with the Boston Celtics, making millions. But if you’ve seen the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, Broke, or read the news in general on Walker, you know that he spent himself into a frenzy and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in 2010. He is currently out here promoting a documentary about the rise and fall of his fame and his fortune over the years called Gone In An Instant. Walker told Russ Parr in a new radio interview that through the film, he hopes to help other NBA players from making the same mistakes 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.”

At this stage in his life, Walker claims that he is finally without his massive debt, but he’s also without his former love, Lozada. Since leaving him, she has married and divorced Chad Johnson, and has had a child with current fiance, Carl Crawford. She has moved on, but Walker isn’t necessarily out here wishing her the best. In that same interview with the “Russ Parr Morning Show,” Walker spoke openly about feeling some type of way about Lozada leaving him when he was at his lowest point, especially since he claims that she was living quite well and happy with him when he had money.

“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.”

Looks like Walker is trying to pull the full on golddigger card, but Lozada claimed during the first season of Basketball Wives Miami that Walker cheated on her multiple times, and that such infidelity on top of other struggles, was a big reason why she had to leave him. And at this point, it seems that Lozada doesn’t appreciate Walker bringing her up in his interviews, because she just posted this on Twitter:

Well, there you have it! But what do you think about what Walker had to say about his past relationship with Lozada? Check out his full interview with “The Russ Parr Morning Show” here. His statements about Lozada start at the 6:00 mark.

    She played him. Too a line from E40’s “Captain Save-a-Hoe”:

    “Make him take care of your kids; Make him call your kids his. Make hisass get out there and work. Make him buy you a Dooney and Bourke.”

  • Tasha

    I find it funny that she states that he needs to move on because she doesn’t talk about him, yet her fame comes from a show called ” Basketball Wives” which she was cast because she dated and was engaged to him…funny how she forgot about that. Now he is a different kind of fool, he apparently forgot to look in the mirror (as Chad and her new Boo did) to see that she was way too pretty for him, She got what she wanted and then turned around built an empire from being a “Basketball Wife” then a “Football Wife” and now she is a “Baseball Wife” once she is done with this new fool she will find herself a new fool probably in the NHL! I also doubt he hit her because if she the person she claims to be she would of left him like she left her husband for head butting her. Let’s get real the money ran out and so did she, now he future hubby signed a new contract and is worth $125 mil, if he plays his cards right and keeps the money flowing she will never leave!

    Every dude she messes with ends up on SKID ROW —

  • johnathon1234

    You earned it — and you spent it. She wanted a person that would support her all of her life, but you decided that spending the money was in YOUR BEST INTEREST. Don’t blame her – you created this problem.

    This is my favorite quote, you knew she was a trophy girlfriend and a gold digger, which is why you didn’t marry her, get over it and move on. She has already.

  • Peaches

    You didnt know you were marrying a skank. Men look for big butts and good looks and then act surprised when she uses him. She only wanted your money to begin with and now she is on to the next fool.

    That “broad” is a gold digger and she ain’t messin with no broke n..ers.

  • ottie


  • Orijinale

    I think she has no shame in her game.

  • IHateFatChicks

    You can’t make a ho a housewife. You don’t give gold digging hookers like Lozada any money. You show it to them and keep it for yourself. Women like here are plentiful and easy to burn through. Walker was an idiot. This is why every athlete should NOT get married before their career is over and every one of them should have a prenuptial agreement. She is like most ghetto trash.

  • coolyfett

    SIMPING….this is why these rappers make songs bout not loving em….simps love em than this stuff happens.

  • Rosemary Davis

    Well there is an old saying that you find out who your true friends are when you are facing adversities. I don’t know what happen with their situation, and so I want bash Evelyn for that I’m sure she had her own reasons for leaving Antione Walker, and she did get her own shoe business out of the relationship,but we should not forget Antoine Walker also had a major gambling problem, and no doubt some of his fortunes were lost to gambling and I remember Evelyn saying that companies came after her for money that he owed so it’s a lot we don’t know, there is always three sides to every story his,her’s and the truth.

  • Toya

    If your making millions of dollars I may be able to look past all the times you cheated on me. But once those millions are gone why am I going to continue to stay. I ain’t mad at her. Then they were together for 10 years and never got married. It doesn’t sound like he was doing what he was supposed to do. Maybe if they had been married she would have felt the need to stay. She said he cheated so why the hell should she stay when he loses everything. Men just think they can throw around there money, and it will make everything ok.

  • therealnumber1

    Uh…she talked about him on Bball wives…and I have no sympathy for her if he cheated on her…she slept with tami’s husband for crying out loud…they (bball wives) claim to want to keep hoes out fo their circle but the ring leader was exactly that…and I have no sympathy for him either…he knew what she was about when he got with her…

  • Addicted2RealityRubbish

    Why he mad though?? EVERYONE knows Evelyn is a paper chaser with a baby named Kash Register. She’s moved on. Broke azzzz Antoine should do the same. He’s a dummy for not keeping his coints close.

  • Hk40

    Dude, you got caught out there; let it go. She obviously had an agenda that didn’t include you. You’re three victims removed; be happy you didn’t get her pregnant.

  • pow

    He should have have married herr period! He got what was coming to him.

  • Sam Black

    What? Women are gold diggers who’s number one priority is money? What a shock!!! LOL

  • DanFromMV

    Evelyn seems to have a particular type she is attracted to. Current pro athletes with high incomes. Once the income stops, she is outta there.

    • Yvette

      If he doesn’t, he should but it’s too late now. He is tied to Evelyn for the next 18 years whether they stay together or not. Child support will be no joke for him because of his income and he has two other young children by his ex. I sure hope he is good with money and not trying to “ball out” like so many other pro athletes.

  • WebbGirl358

    Men do this all the time. When a relationship goes bad, they focus on what the other person did… They cannot and will not own up to their part of what happened in the relationship. They always blame the other person….. Breakup goes both ways….

  • Mike

    It boggles my mind that a young pro athlete would get married or in a long term relationship during their career…there are just too many women out there…no need to settle down until after you retire…what a waste…a young pro athlete shouldn’t get tied down!

    • Nia

      And that is what is wrong with the black community. You don’t see any of this drama or foolishness with white young pro athletes. They don’t air their ish out on “the streets”. They are happily married and building great futures.

      • Annika

        Are you serious???!!!! Ever heard of the Kardasians and the Jenners.

        • Yvette

          The Kardashians are not athletes. They screw them though.

          • Annika

            Bruce Jenner is married to Kris and prior to him she was married to Robert K Major gold digger.

          • Annika

            They are gold digging trash.

  • Larry Taylor

    Everybody has been taken advantage of at some point in their life. If that’s what you’re crying about. You need to concentrate on the money. You could always buy another hoe. If that’s what she was. Any way you didn’t commit. You a baller, Ball!

  • Jane Doe

    Damn Evelyn just don’t give a F U C K. She like you a non muthafvckin factor!!

  • Cheryl Robinson

    Who does not know she is a “Gold Digger” raise your hand?

  • Sir,men walk out of their women for arbitrary reasons everyday,yall want to marry bad byshes then act surprised when they want a bigger fish,charge it to the game,next time,you’ll know better.

    Ps: im so sure you were a loving faithful decade long “fiance” fck your feelings.

  • Lissa329

    Classic example of someone needing to use a bigger celebrity to secure an interview. No tea, no shade but can you blame her? You FINALLY ask her to be your wife after the cheating, gambling, that ransom from the street kings and abuse? A woman gets tired of doing the same things for a man over and over again if she doesn’t feel like she is getting something meaningful out of it. He and Chad really need to get somewhere and have a seat.

  • Ash

    Antoine Walker lost his money because he was a big time gambler, trying to “Be like Mike” and got caught up. You earned that money, it’s your responsibility to protect it.

  • Kandylicious

    I`ve learned through observing many athletes that there is a such thing as dumb jocks.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Based on my perusal of the comment section I’ve learned that using a man’s okay if he hasn’t made a marriage pledge. Did I get that right?

    • MsPriscilla Flores

      No… it’s they both benefited .They used each other.
      It goes both ways he was fine using her for appearances and such as long as he could stay single, cheat, live his lifestyle, etc. He could’ve committed & just maybe things would’ve been better but if that’s how he was doing her… umm yeah, I could see her at some point being done because that is a whole lot to put up with & he broke with no commitment! Ummm… NO!!

      • Stacy D. Smith

        You know the two of them personally? You appear to have an intimate knowledge of their situation.

  • Trini_Angel

    Damn fool got played now he’s crying. Should probably write a book on how black men should look out for the female players and to stick with the chick who had ur back when u were a nobody. They all want a trophy-light-‘wife’ on their arm when they’re on the high. Most of them aren’t there for love, just there to live the high life and never work a day in their life. Fool!!

  • Guest

    Evelyn tells him to move on? He’s just trying to make a buck….just like she is. If she had “moved on” from him she would not have capitalized on their relationship by signing with “Basketball Wives.” Girl, bye.

  • Csy

    These guys don’t want to date the type of woman that stays with you through your trials, they want a woman who will look good on tv, make other guys envious, and be a “credit” to his image. Then they get mad when they leave for someone else tries to step out the box they put them into, or stop enjoying the BS that their lifestyle brings and leaves. Bet he goes right back to dating the same type too.

  • Kenneth Bridgeforth

    LOL this man forgets it’s public record how many times he cheated, beat and dogged her. move on , he madddddddddddddddddddddddddddd she still fine. After 10 years and no ring, she would be a dumb dumbass if she had stayed while on her show… no no no !!!

  • Mrah

    These Hoes ain’t loyal.

  • Nickalus T. Holt

    LOL! No she did NOT hit
    Antoine Antoine w
    Antoine ith the “Dueces” on Twitter did she…

  • Nicole

    Is he really trying to make people think the ONLY reason Evelyn left him was for money?? The same Evelyn who jumped over a table on Jennifer (her best friend) for making fun of Nia for being broke? Boy Bye! Let’s not act like you did nothing to push her to leave & the fact that people are buying into his story is ridiculous…him blowing his $ & going broke was just the final straw for her that’s what that was…the reason he’s not over it, is because he hasn’t accepted responsibility for his part so he’s still playing victim smh

  • k.f.

    How can you expect loyalty when you are not even loyal to the person that you with. You can’t expect loyalty if you not put out the same!

  • PleaseDOBetter

    I’m going to move off the golddigger point as that has been stressed enough. My point is about relationships being mutually beneficial. We are supposed to help EACH OTHER OUT and learn and grow, TOGETHER. She rose, and he fell. I will never understand why people continue to date, marry, reproduce with, sleep with etc. individuals who hurt their bottom line and bring nothing to the relationship. When I am dating a man, I will help to elevate him even further, not pull him down.

    Some people just need to choose more wisely…

    • PrettyBrownEyes

      And there it is….

  • Gemini Rules

    Really dude dated 10 years and no married. Ha Ha I’m laughing with Evelyn. Dude please!

  • angiedavis

    BYE FELICIA!!!!!! Somebody give him a seat cause he is so tired for trying to go there

  • Clarice Samuel


  • Princerella boutdatcheque

    all these people saying everyone knows evelyns a golddigger. now yes, but back than? i don’t think people even knew who evelyn was. so how was antoine suppose to know she was a gold digger?

    • Mike

      the odds are that any woman who dates a pro athlete is suspected of being a gold digger…

  • BMW Babe

    and he didnt benefit??? Please…. he was a cheater as well. you both used each other brotha

  • AfricaChillin

    What’s wrong with taking the time to choose a partner with goals, ambitions, and morals? home boy sounds like he chose this woman while he was blind folded and by the time he took off the blind fold he was broke.

  • VVV

    Sorry, all black men who get involved with a woman like that deserve what they get.

  • Diane Whauloknat Bridges

    He wanted a pro thot and got what he paid for

  • Linda M McCuff

    Cry when you’re treated that way by your wife. But to keep an adult woman your girl friend for 10 years is pathetic. I’m surprised anyone would play house with you that long without the benefit of matrimony. You want someone to be your girlfriend but commit like a wife. Nope not happening, for better or worse is a vow reserved for the married, not ones practicing marriage. I really hope that she doesn’t allow that kind of arrangement with her new man. You Sir really need to move on…

    • PleaseDOBetter

      I hear your point, but she is as much responsible for “playing house” for an extended period of time as he is. At a certain point, we have got to be clear in words and in actions (regardless of how hard it is) regarding what we will and will not tolerate. Based on what we know about this situation, it seems that that standard was not set or did she not care about the standard because she was reaping those benefits and didn’t truly care about marriage…

      • bee

        I think the point Linda is trying to make is that Antoine cant complain about a long term gf not holding him down when he didnt hold her down by making her his one. He is the ine complaining. Not Evelyn. She took her jewelry, furs, vacation pictures, cars, and stash and moved on. She didnt have to be wife if she still achieved her goal. A come up.

        • Linda M McCuff

          Thanks bee, that was my point exactly.

      • Linda M McCuff

        At that time, neither of them seemed to make the act of getting married a priority, he certainly didn’t. But now that things have changed for him, and he’s left without his wealth, he wants to blame her for his foolish choices. Of course she doesn’t have any regrets, she living the life of her choice. She’s not the one lamenting, he is. Like her or not this is not her issue, it’s his. What he’s facing is called lifestyle regrets, and he suffers for his choices and he can’t blame anyone but his self.

  • CJay1129

    She used his name to get on that show…but he do need to move on…she is obviously on to greener pastures. He learned his lesson…hopefully.

  • hollyw

    Oh quit crying, finances are the number one cause of divorce, and millionaires are NOT excluded… and y’all weren’t even married!

    … having said that, I sure you knew she was a goldigger when you were with her. They only stay with you if you are a cheater AND rich, come on now…

  • Christina K

    Oh you black men kill me. I love you all to death but…what do you expect? You choose these women, generally fair-skinned ‘pretty’ girls who would likely ignore you were you not a talented athlete or ‘baller’ and then play dumb when they bounce as they going gets tough. You don’t stick with the down females from around your way, the ones checking for you when you haven’t a dime and then pull the ‘Terrance Howard’ when your trophy chicks play you. Hi-lah-rious. 😀

    • Hope Nodrama

      Well said Christina!!!

      Thanks for the bigotry!

        kpagu1, only mildly considered bigotry if there is no iota of truth.

    • Trini_Angel

      You hit the nail on the head Christina…..damn fool got played now he’s crying. Should probably write a book on how black men should look out for the female players and to stick with the chick who had ur back when u were a nobody. Fool!!

  • Music

    If the allegations are true about him beating and cheating on her are true, then I would’ve left too. And he had the nerve to go broke. You’re not beating/cheating on me regardless with me deciding to stay, and if you do, you’re definitely not going to do it if I can’t afford to go get a mani/pedi afterwards to console my pain.

    • hollyw

      Lmboooo! Okay?! Tell the truth, shame the devil!!

      You dating a multi millionaire and all you want from him is mani and pedis? Lmao you basic bishes!!! My bf bought me a range rover and a mercedes g wagon ad he ain’t even a millionaire.

        Then, he’s a fool. And, he didn’t buy them for you, he’s leased them and he’s in debt up to his eyeballs. You’re such a trick ho. 🙂

      • Music

        My mentioning of mani/pedi was from a sarcastic standpoint. I can pay for my own mani/pedi.

    • IHateFatChicks

      Highly unlikely he ever “beat her”. You must be joking, delusional or incredibly stupid.

  • Mrs.Mason

    he is stupid…he knew what it was when the relationship was goin well…she about her coins and we all know this….him speaking up now is pointless….she want a dude with big pockets …as if he wasn’t aware of this ….he a idiot for thinking that she was going to stick around….

  • Curt Steele

    what gold digger you know hangs around when there’s no gold…….note to Antoine choose ur women a little more wisely if not don’t run out of gold……ijs

    • coolyfett

      Word man, choose better chicks.

  • dagr8

    A woman will put up with a cheating man. A woman will put up with an alcoholic. A woman will put up with an abusive man. A woman will even put up with a broke man…But dammit, not all of those at once. Every woman has her breaking point, and Evelyn is lack of money. Some women their breaking point is cheating or abuse. Yea, she probably is a golddiger but he knew that. I don’t feel sorry for him.

    • Angie

      VERY TRUE!

  • Cookie

    I don’t hear him discussing the women, the gambling, buying cars for people, beating on her, etc..Don’t tell half the story..Tell it all, and he really needs to move on.

    • B.A.

      Hopefully the documentary will tell the whole truth, if it has all perspectives.

    Everything that happened to him he did to himself. He paid for what he wanted now he has buyer’s remorse? Who couldn’t see Evelyn and all that she is really about (money) coming? Child bye…
