'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.

Sad part is he offered her the money years ago.. He gave it without a problem possibly to cover himself.. Well now he wants it back because she's making her own loot off BBW!! OK what a loser I think.. I'm not an Evelyn fan by far i'm team TAMI all the way.. Give me 60 SECONDS with EVELYN and I'd show her how to really fight.. And beleive me I won't have a drink in my hand when i'm ready to get it poppin either.

well walker is screwed, cuz even if he could prove he was just hiding money from his creditors, that was an illegal contract, so cant be enforced by the courts - all he can do is waive good bye!!!

They were never married, have no kids. So how is she a basketball 'wife'? All those stupid shows, these EX-WIVES get paid alot of money for what. They trash their ex-husbands, without them or their names and money they would be who?


Looking at over 500k, offered or not doesn't matter Lozada accepted. She wasn't sandbagged, wasn't used. She has explaining to do. Hard to play dumb on accepting over $500K and claiming the only money she ever got was for the Walker household expences. Lawyers will have a field day on this.

Do any of these ghetto trash woman on basketball wives actually work and make their own money or do they just find washed up ex bashetball players and suck them dry for their last dollar?

She used Antoine until he ran out of money. She is the definition of a fame whore.
