It’s been a while since Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada has been romantically linked to someone. Lozada has been open about her love life, even famously dating men in several sports leagues, but she’s been lowkey in recent years. Last year, Lozada was linked to Marc Anthony. Though she was mum on the rumors, she’s now offering clarity into their relationship.

The former ‘Basketball Wives’ star was first linked to Marc Anthony in 2020

In Oct. 2020, fans began speculating about a possible relationship between the singer and reality star after Lozada posted photos of her from Anthony’s Miami mansion. Per Bossip, social media users were able to tell it was Anthony’s mansion due to previous interview tours he’s had of the home. One interview Anthony did at his home was in 2013 with Amazon Music in celebration of reaching Diamond status with his album. The home looks similar to the home Lozada shared pictures of.

Lozada also says she’s currently single. “I’m not dating…I’m in a weird space about that right now. I wish I could get into details but don’t wanna traumatize anybody.”
