Evelyn Lozada is back in the game, literally. According to several sources, and a few well placed eyewitness accounts, the reality star is dating Los Angeles Dodgers baseball player, Carl Crawford.
Lozada was in NYC during the Dodgers late April series with the Mets and was spotted at Chase Field. She also posted pictures to her Instagram account while in the Big Apple, that showed her riding in a posh limosine.
Why would Crawford be a perfect match for Lozada? Maybe it’s the 7 year, $142 million deal he signed back in 2010. Let us do the math for you, that’s an average of $20 million a season, or as our friends would say, “Lotto money.”
While Evelyn is allegedly living the high life with her new man, her ex’s struggles continue. As we reported Monday, Chad Johnson was arrested after violating his Florida probation. Adding insult to injury, he’s also hurting financially. Johnson, in a recent paternity dispute, told the judge, “Simply, I am unemployed”.
Ironically, on the same day that Chad was arrested, a new trailer was released for the documentary about Evelyn’s other ex, former NBA Star Antione Walker. The film called Gone In An Instant, chronicles how Walker lost more than 100 million dollars and is now flat broke. And where is the woman who many of the millions were lavished on? Allegedly, she is in LA swinging for the fences with her latest conquest, Crawford.
HipHollywood has reached out to Evelyn’s camp for comment on her new beau, but her rep tells us Evelyn is still “single” and not dating.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
