Days following the proposal on Dec. 28, the couple shared their excitement regarding their recent engagement in respective statements sent to the publication.

As Whitehead said, “Behind every great man is a great woman, and sometimes the strongest person on your team is the woman you choose to be with!”

This would be Gates’ second marriage. The star was previously married to Rod “Shooter” Gates for several years and ended things after he allegedly had an affair with her assistant. The former couple finalized their divorce in 2018. 

At the same time, Gates began dating Romel “BK Brasco” Cummings during season 7 of “LHH: ATL,” which began airing in 2018. Gates and Cummings got engaged last year on Dec. 5, 2020, during the grand opening of his boutique Band of Brothers. The pair called off the engagement a week later. 

According to reports, an alleged source close to Cummings and Gates claimed that the relationship went south after Cummings’ child’s mother attended the exes engagement party despite not having a great relationship with Gates.

The same source told The Shade Room that Cummings tried to smooth things over by reportedly asking the mother of his child to leave. It later allegedly came out that Cummings lied about the request, and Gates ultimately ended the engagement.
