"Love & Hip Hop: ATL" star Mimi Faust's ex-fiancée, Ty Young, has already found love with another woman just weeks after confirming their breakup. Surprisingly, Faust had the classiest reaction to the new relationship.


Mimi Faust, née Oluremi Fela James, rose to fame because of her dramatic antics on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," but lately, the reality star has toned down and prefers to live a quieter life.

Even fans were surprised to find out that she and her then-fiancée, Tamera "Ty" Young, had quietly called off their engagement without the usual social media outbursts and subliminals typical of reality star breakups.

Less than a month after news of the breakup, Gossip of the City reported that Young has already moved on with a young woman named Erica, complete with pictures of the new lovers hanging outdoors.

As fans gathered in the comments section expressing their opinions, Faust opted to share her sentiments about the WNBA player's new relationship. She wrote:

"I wish them well…I hope they make each other happy. @Tyyoung11 deserves it...?"


While Faust seemed happy for her ex, fans were confused and disappointed that the relationship ended abruptly. One fan commented, "Aww, this makes me sad. I liked them together."

Several others echoed the same sentiments since Faust and Young's relationship appeared to be promising, and they had been engaged less than a year. Young had been working up to the perfect surprise proposal since August 2019.


Faust and Young began dating in 2016 and appeared to be a match made in heaven. The reality star even allowed Young to meet her daughter, Eva Jordan, who she shares with her ex and fellow "LHHATL" costar, Stevie Jordan.

Faust's storyline included a messy love triangle between herself, Jordan, and Joseline Hernandez.

Faust, Young, and Eva made one adorable family and were occasionally spotted together. In 2019, the trio melted hearts after Faust and her daughter attended one of Young's basketball games in Atlanta.


Faust was notoriously protective and secretive about her relationship with Young and even chose to exclude it from her "LHHATL" storyline. She feared that reality television would ruin their relationship.

The lack of drama in Faust's life even affected her paycheck. The star, who was once the subject of a sex tape scandal on the show, said she took a salary cut because her storyline lacked the drama of troubled relationships.

In previous seasons, Faust's storyline included a messy love triangle between herself, Jordan, and Joseline Hernandez. She later dated Nikko London, with whom she was featured in the sex tape.
