'Basketball Wives' Star

Sued for Helping Blow

NBA Star's Fortune

Evelyn Lozada
-- one of the stars of "Basketball Wives" who was once engaged to former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker -- is being sued for allegedly receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally.

The story is shocking. Walker raked in a whopping $110 million during his NBA career, in addition to untold millions in endorsements and other deals ... and he blew ALL OF IT and a lot more.

Walker filed for bankruptcy last year, and now the bankruptcy trustee smells a rat. It seems Walker gave Lozada $560,000 when he already knew he was going belly up. The trustee has sued Lozada, claiming the transfer was fraudulent -- an attempt to hide money from legitimate creditors.

The trustee says Lozada used the money to start a Miami shoe store called Dulce, and now the trustee wants the $560k back.

We're told Lozada and Walker insist there was no funny business. He gave her the money to help pay her bills. Sources say Lozada funded Dulce NOT with the $560k, but by selling her engagement ring.  And, our sources say, Lozada had no idea Walker was so deep in debt.

Rich people's problems ...

She knew he was going belly up she is a golddigger once she found out she bailed and I am sure he was a creep in the process cause he never intended to marry her just keep her emotionally and sexually available.....cause most men who are filled with millions and EGO are usually their own sense of self importance culminating in Pompacreepentitaliitus ..ok I made up that word. a pompus creep who feel entitled

This pathetic dude was under the impression that you HAD to spend your entire pay checque and you'd keep doing that until there were no more cheques - after you've blown it all you claim bankruptcy. It wouldn't have matter if he had 200 million dollars, he'd still be in debt and only have his ostentatious bling to impress the folks in the hood to show for the good times. Anybody with a quarter of a brain would know that you don't move money around shortly before claiming bankruptcy. He had enough money to try to hide, but not enough sense to take a few thousands and run his scam by an attorney. Just plain old STUPID and cheap.

My. my my... I did a search on this guy and his gambling habit. It's just sad. His problems didn't just start, he was in ho*****er as far back as 2009, bouncing cheques buying, allegedly spending $10 million a year on watches, bankrolling his Mama and their messed up relatives and friends... and his Mama was quoted as saying, "...he doesn't party any more than the next person'' and "what you do with your life is your business." Fair to summarize that the stupid fruit 't fell underneath that tree... then there's Evelyn Lozada. He thought he had died and went to heaven. He seems stupid enough to believe that she thought HE was hot [yikes]. Sure she gave him his money's worth.
