'Basketball Wives' Tami Roman Secretly Married Boyfriend in Las Vegas Last Year
Tami Roman and her longtime boyfriend, Reggie Youngblood have been secretly married for a year. The couple reportedly tied the knot in Las Vegas despite previously shunning marriage talk.
“Basketball Wives” star Tami Roman is already a football wife and we didn’t know it. The reality star has been reportedly married to her longtime boyfriend, Reggie Youngblood since the third quarter of last year.
IT'S BEEN ALMOST A YEAR
According to The Blast, the couple obtained a marriage license in Las Vegas on August 17, 2018, and wed that same day. None of us knew this because they’ve kept it a secret all this time.
"We're in a good place and I don't think we need to put any pressure on ourselves about having that piece of paper."
WHY WE DIDN'T SUSPECT
In January, Tami alluded to still being unmarried when she insinuated she and Reggie were in a good place and didn’t want the pressure of marriage to rock the boat. Sitting down with Entertainment Tonight who inquired about her marriage plans, the 49-year old said,
"We've talked about it. We've kicked it around. We're really good. We're in a good place and I don't think we need to put any pressure on ourselves about having that piece of paper and when the moment presents itself, we'll jump out there and do it."
Now it seems Tami’s statement was just a ruse to distract fans from the truth. She was already married at the time of the interview.
"The bravest thing I've ever done is learn to stand still and let God MOVE.”
IT'S CLEAR NOW
Looking back, Tami shared a cryptic post the day before she tied the knot with Reggie and it’s clearer now.
"The bravest thing I've ever done is learn to stand still and let God MOVE,” she wrote.
There were rumors months before they wed that the couple had split up after Tami unfollowed and deleted photos of Reggie on her social media.
WHY WE KNEW THEY'D EVENTUALLY TIE THE KNOT
Tami, who was previously married to NBA star Kenny Anderson from 1994 to 2001, had been dating Reggie, a top NFL prospect turned businessman since 2014. They appeared together on “Basketball Wives” and on one season of “Marriage Boot Camp.”
There were rumors months before they wed that the couple had split up after Tami unfollowed and deleted photos of Reggie on her social media. However, the 32-year-old dismissed this by telling his followers on Instagram that he and Tami “are riding together until the wheels fall off.”
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT SEASON OF "BASKETBALL WIVES"
Now that we know the truth about their relationship, we’re curious if the couple will be revealing their secret marriage on “Basketball Wives” when it returns on June 19.
Towards the end of season seven of the show, Tami implied she was done with it after feuding with her co-stars. But she later revealed her contract wouldn’t allow her to do so. Instead, she’ll be returning for season 8 and vows to be a better version of herself. Here’s hoping the coming season will enlighten fans on why the star kept her marriage a secret.
