For months now, the world thought that the controversy surrounding Brandon Jennings and Tae Heckard’s whirlwind romance was that it was a simple love triangle between the pair and Jennings’ ex-girlfriend, Teyana Taylor, who was also friends with Heckard before the love triangle began. But according to a new report, there’s another woman marring the romance as well: Heckard’s alleged girlfriend.
According to TMZ, Heckard and Jennings are rumored to be engaged and want to tie the knot soon. However, they can’t get married yet because Heckard is already legally involved with another woman.
Sources claim that Heckard entered a legally binding domestic partnership with a woman named Monique Blanton in 2008 and even took her last name. However, Heckard recently filed papers that end that partnership so that she can marry Jennings.
Court documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court show that Heckard legally separated from Blanton in 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. However, it wasn’t until now that Heckard opted to finally end the relationship. She also filed to legally restore her last name to Heckard.
Well, this love affair just keeps getting messier and messier. We hope, for their sake, that their rushed love affair doesn’t end up in yet another split and legal name change. – nicholas robinson
