Basketball Wives Star Evelyn Lozada Signs With Young Money
Sounds crazy, right? Yet, it’s true — & may not be what you think.
The Basketball Wives standout & fiancé of Chad Ochocinco Johnson has just signed a six-figure deal with Young Money Cash Money to develop literary and feature film projects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, First up for Lozada is The Wives Association, a book series to be co-authored by novelist and former Law & Order: Criminal Intent writer Courtney Parker. The books will be loosely based on Lozada’s life, using the alter ego Eve Inez-Landon to fictionalize the true stories she has learned from years of dating professional athletes.
“The stories that you hear—what goes on in these relationships, and just being in that circle—I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels,” Lozada said.
The deal is with Cash Money Content, a book publishing arm of the record label Cash Money Records, founded by brothers Bryan “Baby” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams. The label’s artists include Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. Founded as an independent label in 1992, Cash Money is now part of the Universal Music Group.
“By partnering with Baby and Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these ‘novels’ into a full-fledged brand,” Lozada explains. “Everything Baby and CMC touches turns to gold, and our brands together will be magical.”
I can’t help but to agree. This is a great move for Evelyn.
