NBA star Brandon Jennings is airing out his public issues with his ex-fiancé and baby’s mother, Lashonte “Tae” Heckard. Apparently, the model is eyeing joining “Basketball Wives” and her one-time beau is not a fan of the potential move.
The former journeyman NBA point guard posted his thoughts on Snapchat Tuesday, but the posts have since been deleted. However, the screenshots live on, thanks to the internet.
“Why is my 41-year-old baby mama trying to get on basketball wives!” he wrote in one post. “Ur not even a basketball wive.”
In a follow-up message, Jennings said, “Listen I’m old. But how y’all n—as let women y’all date go on and talk but they ex and baby daddies! That is so weird to me!”
After leaving the app for a couple of hours he returned and said he “never cared about what any woman does!”
“If I’m not bothering you or asking you for anything! You don’t exist to me!” he said before adding, “That means don’t ask me for s—! Go find another n—a to help u!”
The post comes four years after Jennings and Heckard called off their engagement, which came after she became pregnant with his baby. Before their split, however, fallout over their relationship ensued when model/singer Teyana Taylor took issue with Tae dating Jennings, who was her ex-boyfriend. Taylor said on “The Breakfast Club” in 2014 that she and Tae were pals, something Heckard, who starred in “ATL,” later denied.
“Brandon doesn’t shock me anymore…so my issues isn’t with Brandon,” Taylor said on the radio show. “My issue is with Tae cuz that was my friend. … You’re 36 years old. You’re a grown woman. I’m 23. As a woman, the moment you found out … I found out on the blogs.”
With that in mind, many who replied to Jennings’ post drummed up talk of Taylor in an effort to throw shade at his social media musings.
“Teyana would never… 💅🏽”
“Teyana Taylor somewhere snickering.”
“Bet you she wish she would’ve let Teyana have him.”
“lol the way they did teyana, no sympathy”
“It’s crazy how she dissed Teyana for him, now he doing this to her smh. The circle of life.”
They also remarked that many of the stars of the VH1 reality show are unwed.
“Hell Evelyn 50 + never been married to one either 🤷🏽♀️. But one thing about them tables baby, they always turn!!”
“Being an actual wife has never been a requirement 😂”
“No one on the show is a wife.”
