Who is Brandon Jennings’ Wife/Girlfriend?

Jennings began dating his first ever girlfriend, Brittany Bryant, in 2005. She was his high school sweetheart and the woman of his dreams. Brittany supported her boyfriend through the hurdles of his promising basketball career.
Of course, they had both pictured themselves tying the knot as husband and wife in the near future. Sadly, some couples aren’t meant to be together, which was the case for Brandon Jennings and Brittany Bryant.
After six years of dating, the love birds broke up and went their separate ways. No one would have imagined that Jennings would leave his girlfriend just a few years after entering the NBA.
Barely two years after his breakup, the former NBA star was linked with Angela Simmons. However, their relationship seems to be based on rumours because there was no definitive proof to support this claim.
From 2011 to 2014, Brandon Jennings dated Teyana Taylor, to whom he was engaged. Afterwards, he entered a relationship with Malika (2014–2016), which didn’t last too long as well.
He was about to give up on his love life when he suddenly met Lashontae Heckard in 2014. Among all his ex-girlfriends, only Lashontae Heckard displayed some promising qualities that made Jennings consider marriage. Although he got her engaged, their relationship still ended with a breakup.

As a little girl, Tae Heckard aspired to work in the entertainment industry. Thanks to her supportive family, she began working towards her aspiration. Tae was first enrolled in school to gain formal education and delved into her acting career immediately after high school.
