While Teyana Taylor’s new relationship with Iman Shumpert is heating up, Brandon Jennings relationship with Lashontae Heckard may be fizzling out. The former video vixen began dating Jennings a few months ago, and the two immediately began posting photos of one another on Instagram with sweet captions.
However, the relationship may not be going so well these days. Over the weekend, Jennings, 24, tweeted: “Back Single. But I ain’t looking. I’m chilling. Enjoying life [sic].”
Though he later deleted the tweet, the NBA player has not been posting photos of his new love recently on Instagram, or referencing her in any of his tweets, though Heckard posted photos of the two last week at an event together.
Just last month, there was controversy surrounding Taylor’s previous relationship with Jennings, after he began dating her friend, Heckard. Heckard was close friends with G.O.O.D. rapper Taylor, and Taylor admits she feels betrayed. “I felt betrayed because of everything we’ve been through on and off for six years, Brandon doesn’t shock me anymore. My issue is not with Brandon, I’m not even upset because I know him. My issue is with Tae, that was my friend. I found out on the blogs, I called her and she got defensive,” Taylor said during a radio interview with the Breakfast Club in New York.
While speaking with the Breakfast Club, Taylor also proclaimed that Jennings was her first love, days after he claimed his new relationship with Heckard is his first “real” one.
It remains to be seen if Jennings and Heckard are officially over or not.
Meanwhile, as Jennings deals with relationship trouble, Taylor is seemingly still in the honeymoon phase with her new NBA beau, Knicks player Shumpert. In honor of his 24th birthday last week, Taylor posted a picture of the two along with the caption, “Happy Birthday baby…#iLoveU.” They went to Hawaii together to celebrate the special occasion. It is unclear how long the two have been together, but he split up with singer Elle Varner last September.
