Former NBA star, Antoine Walker, breaks his five-year silence about what ended his 10-year relationship with the reality TV beauty, Evelyn Lozada. Walker finally told his side of the story during a radio interview Thursday with Russ Parr about what caused their break up. He spoke very candidly about their relationship and their 2006 engagement, which was called off a year later. Walker claims Evelyn left him marooned once he lost his $100 million fortune. He says at the height of his career, Evelyn benefitted greatly from his fortune, but once his life was on the skids, she bailed on him without a care for his well-being. “My thing with Evelyn is she reaped a lot of benefits on my wealth. And when it got tight, she chose to go a different direction. So that’s a problem that I have with Evelyn.”
Evelyn took to Twitter to refute these claims citing their split was due to his infidelity. “Funny how he didn’t even know when we got engaged! It was in 2006 not 2007 and he got left because he was cheating!”
Evelyn is no stranger to conflict and controversy. She has been ridiculed by the public for her reckless behavior, her poor choices in men and she has been accused of being a gold digger. Her sketchy past involves an admitted affair with cast mate, Tami Roman’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson, and an alleged affair with former BFF, Jennifer Williams’ ex-husband Eric Williams.
Evelyn was briefly involved in a world-wind romance to former NFL wide receiver, Chad Johnson, that played out on the hit reality show, “Basketball Wives”. She was slated for a spin-off show chronicling her marriage to the NFL star, but the show was cancelled due Chad’s shameful domestic abuse that ended their marriage. Evelyn has since moved on and is now engagement to Los Angeles Dodgers player, Carl Crawford. The couple recently gave birth to their first child together, Carl J.R.
Evelyn has now moved forward with her life, so why is Antoine speaking out now? At one point in the interview he mentioned his issues with Evelyn are personal. Since their split, Evelyn has done well for herself. She is a big Reality TV star. She is well connected in the entertainment world and is engaged to a multimillionaire. Is Antoine hoping to benefit off of Evelyn’s celebrity now that the tables have turned?
