'Basketball Wives' Star

I Didn't Know My Ex-Fiance

WAS BROKE!

Evelyn Lozada claims she did nothing wrong when she accepted over half a million dollars from her ex-fiancé, former NBA star Antoine Walker, because she had no idea he was in debt ... this according to court docs filed this week. 

As TMZ first reported, the "Basketball Wives" star is being sued by the bankruptcy trustee in Walker's case who claims Walker funneled money to her while they were engaged as a way to hide if from his creditors.

Lozada has responded to the suit with an answer filed Friday in bankruptcy court in Miami. She claims she was not aware of Walker's financial problems and questionable business deals.

According to the docs, Lozada denies the allegation that Walker's money was used to open her shoe store, Dulce. She says any money she got from Walker was "used for the ordinary living expenses of the [Walker] and his household" and that she was simply an intermediary for Walker. 

Lozada and Walker broke up a few years back and she is now engaged to NFL star Chad Ochocinco Johnson.

Well, I think she met her match with that nutcase World-Peace-Ochocinco. That dude isn't going to come off any of his money to a gold-digger.

So what job were you working that saved up enough money to open Dulce. Even if you didn't know he was in debt you are so busted on what you claim you did and didn't use the money for.

ohboy    

my reply to O_o........You're not too swift are you? When a person files for bankruptcy, THAT PERSON IS OBLIGATED TO REPORT ALL ASSETS. What he did was give her money to hide from the government. And if she knew what he was doing and accepted the money regardless, that's aiding and abetting. Are you really that uneducated, or do you just not get it?
Anyone else as naive as this individual commenting? If so, I feel sorry for you.
