After Evelyn Lozada’s highly publicized split from Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, it looked like she’d finally found true love with ex-Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford. But, now it looks like there’s also trouble in paradise with Carl. Quite a few news outlets have reported that Evelyn and Carl won’t be tying the knot because they are no longer together. In fact, the two have reportedly been living separate lives for months. Now, there are reports detailing what may have led to their split.
Gold-Digging and Cheating?:
According to The Jasmine Brand, Evelyn and Carl’s relationship problems stem from gold digging and cheating. However, one person is not to blame for the downfall. The former MLB player reportedly got cold feet once he realized how the marriage could affect his financial status. Carl’s money would have become “Evelyn and Carl’s money” if he tied the not. Apparently, that wasn’t something he was looking forward to. Then, to make matters worse, there were already rumors about Evelyn’s alleged gold digging ways. “Reportedly, Carl got cold feet when he realized “forever” with Evelyn meant half his money if marriage didn’t work out.
The couple got engaged back in December of 2013. Reports circulated last year saying Carl’s teammates’ wives called Evelyn out as a ‘gold digger.'” Things also got a bit more complicated when the two discussed the possibility of a prenuptial agreement. Insiders claim it wasn’t something Carl wanted. “Subsequently, Carl refused to sign prenup papers.”
And the Cheating?:
Evelyn is rumored to be the gold digger but reports suggest Carl is the cheater. It has been reported that the relationship spiraled out of control when Carl was cut from the Los Angeles Dodgers. He reportedly began seeing other women and made no effort to hide his infidelity. “In June 2016, Carl was cut from his job with the Los Angeles Dodgers. A BOSSIP source told us Carl spiraled into play boy mode after the cut. They tell us, Crawford openly went out on dates and flew other women into his home.”
Although the relationship looked promising to many of Evelyn’s fans, the estranged pair have not been seen together publicly since their son’s birthday party back in March. It has also been reported that Evelyn and Carl vacationed separately this summer, spending time with their respective families.
At this point, it’s unclear whether or not the rumors are true but many fans believe they now know why Evelyn agreed to return to Basketball Wives. If the two have broken up, her return may be for financial purposes, but the reality star has yet to address the rumors.
