How Old Is Tae Heckard? Ex Fiance Criticized Her Age in Public
Tae Heckard was taunted by her ex-fiancé, Brandon Jennings, for her attempt to joining Basketball Wives. Brandon made it sound as Heckard was too old to be taking part in reality shows.
But was she that old? What was her age at the time of the comment?
She Ended Domestic Partnership To Marry Jennings
Heckard started dating Jennings around 2014 after Teyana Taylor, Jennings's then-fiancée, introduced them. It was rumored that Jennings double-dated Teyana and Heckard.
Be it true or not, but Heckard was in a domestic relationship when she was dating Jennings. She had married her common-law wife Monique Blanton in 2008 and separated with her in 2011. But she was yet to divorce her legally.
So when Heckard and Jennings got engaged in May 2014, the reality star filed for divorce with her female counterpart to clear the path for her intended marriage with Jennings.
However, things did not go as planned. The duo broke off their engagement in June 2015. Jennings reportedly said he might have been in "lust" rather than "love" with Heckard and also alleged that "she tried to play him" through his Tweets that officiated the breakup.
The separation occurred when Heckard was pregnant with Jennings's child and was close to the delivery date.
Jennings Taunted Heckard for Her Age
In July 2019, Jennings took a public dig at Heckard for wanting to join Basketball Wives, suggesting that her age was not suitable for the show. Tae was at the age of 41 at the time.
Her ex-fiancé took to Instagram to say that the "41-year-old baby mama" trying to join Basketball Wives was not a job. He stressed Heckard was not a wife of a basketball celebrity. And Jennings also taunted Heckard's partner. He said how a man could let his woman go out on TV and talk about her ex-partners.
Although Brandon dissed her in public, Heckard gave no noticeable concerns about it and opted to remain silent on the matter.
Heckard Advocated for Lactation after Son's Birth
From her relationship with Jennings, Heckard has a son named Deuce. He was born on 5th November 2015.
Since his birth, the mother-of-one has posted pictures of her son on Instagram. However, posting cute pictures of him was not only what she did in her gram; she also raised her voice on the normalization of breastfeeding.
For that, she posted pictures of lactating her son and used the hashtag '#normalizebreastfeeding' consistently in her uploads.
How Old Is Tae Heckard? Is Dating Stefon Diggs
Heckard, real name Lashontae Heckard, is at the age of 43. Her date of birth is April 15, 1978.
At 43, the ATL actress is dating Bills wide receiver, Stefon Diggs. The pair, who has an age gap of over a decade, started dating in 2019, and Heckard reportedly moved to Buffalo to be with Diggs.
Her ex-boyfriends include the likes of rapper Nelly and athlete Darnell Dockett.
