The former NBA star was on the radio recently and claimed that Evelyn wasn't the ride or die girlfriend she was supposed to be despite their 10-year relationship. Antoine says as soon as the money dried up, Evelyn chucked the deuce.
Over the course of his career, Antoine made as much as $100 million that the NBA vet says Evelyn and her family benefited greatly from. But due to the 2008 recession, he lost it all and then lost his woman.
While he claims to be bouncing back and helping the next generation of ballers avoid the mistakes he made, Antoine admits he still has a personal beef with Ev for leaving him when the well dried up.
.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.
After Antoine's radio interview made its rounds, Evelyn hopped on Twitter to tell her side, alleging that she was long gone before he went broke and his cheating is what ended their relationship.
I don't talk about u why talk about me?! Move on it's been 5 years!
FYI - He was still playing in the league when I chalked up the deuces & before he filed bankruptcy! So please quit with the lies!
Funny how he didn't even know when we got engaged! It was in 2006 not 2007 & he got left because he was cheating!
It's sad but a woman is liable to tolerate a lot more when she's being provided for than when a guy has nothing to offer her. If Antoine was cheating and doing her wrong, he couldn't possibly have thought she would stick around unless of course he was getting away with it when he did have money.
