‘Even the Side Chick Meets the Family’: Tamar Braxton’s Joke About Boyfriend Having a Family Backfires

Tamar Braxton returned to Instagram over the weekend to share her trek to meet her boyfriend David Adefeso’s loved ones in Nigeria. But a joke about allegations that he was hiding a family of his own came back to bite her.

“And y’all was all paranoid & had me looking for a wife and kids and s–t😩😩😂😂😂 🤷🏽‍♀️ just kidding my @david.adefeso is a dream come true and coming home was the BEST thing I’ve done in a long time🇳🇬 Im so honored to be apart of this spectacular family 🥰🎯💕,” Braxton wrote in the caption of an Instagram video of with Adefeso at what appeared to be a party, the couple donning traditional Nigerian wear.

In her caption, Braxton addressed rumors that initially emerged earlier this year that she had been hiding Adefeso’s face from the public eye because he had a wife and kids at home in Lagos, Nigeria. Back in January when Braxton posted a video of the pair on a boat, fans guessed that there must have been more to why he shielded his face from photogs.

“He’s always hiding must have a wife.”

“Why you hide him all the time? Is he married?”

“He has other wives that why he hiding…. tamar wake up please.”

The rumors grew louder after Braxton briefly broke up with Adefeso once she wrote on her Instagram Story, “I’m single…ready to mingle tho,💕☘ ”

But despite Braxton now poking fun at her fans’ claims her man was hiding a wife or two back home, some are still affirming that speculation.

“Not trying to be a negative Nancy but in this day and age even the side chick meets the family. Not saying that’s the case here but it definitely happens.”

“One of my cousins… bought his WHOLE side chick to the FAMILY reunion…..left his wife and 7kids…home home1🤦🏽‍♀️”

Still, others slammed the few who felt there was something insincere about Adefeso.

“Nigerians don’t play that nonsense they prize family way too highly to waste time showing someone not serious to the family.”

“you should’ve kept this s–t to yourself sis, she is not worried about your shady ass comment.”

Regardless of the in-comments controversy, Braxton is likely looking to soon become Adefeso’s one — and only — wife in the near future. A judge recently granted a request she submitted in April for her to be made single in name only. So as the details of divorce from Vince Herbert need to be finalized, she’ll soon be able to walk into wedded bliss with Adefeso.
