Mimi Faust is continuing to spark rumors she’s dating WNBA player Tamera Young. The “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star was first romantically linked to Young last month, and hinted at the romance again in a new Instagram photo.
Sharing a picture of a beautiful bouquet of red roses, Mimi wrote: “Magical.. Made my heart sing…!!! #100longstemroses Thank You.” She also tagged the Chicago Sky player in the photo.
In July, rumors surfaced that Mimi and Young were an item after the VH1 reality TV star posted a photo of them together on her Instagram page. Wetpaint reported that it had been speculated for quite a while that Mimi and the athlete were secretly dating. Apparently, Mimi was introduced to Young through her ex, Stevie J. Young previously appeared on an episode of Stevie and Joseline Hernandez’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” spinoff show, “Stevie & Joseline.”
Before being linked to Young, Mimi was in a relationship with Chris Gould. Their romance — and also nasty split — played out on Season 5 of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” After coming forward with her relationship with Chris, Mimi took to Instagram to defend her sexuality, writing that people shouldn’t judge a person because of who they choose to date.
“In 2016 we should not be using gay and lesbian as a way to degrade someone. Someone’s sexuality is not a reflection of their character and more importantly what type of parent they are,” she posted. “We should continue the strides we have made over the last 50+ years and allow people to be who they are.”
Even though Mimi has been dating females lately, the TV personality told Page Six in April that she doesn’t want to be labeled as a gay woman. “I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m gay,” she said. “I like people — I like personalities and I’m attracted to who I’m attracted to.”
