Da Brat is getting candid about her personal life more than ever before, recently coming out as bi-sexual and confirming that she’s dating Jesseca Dupart.
Okay, we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but we can’t help it, we love it when people are living their truth and also spilling it.
So here’s the tea, Da Brat recently sat down for an interview with Real Housewives star Kandi Burruss for her YouTube series Speak On It. During which Da Brat detailed several of her past high profile relationships, including briefly dating a controversial Love & Hip Hop cast member. But the one she says she fell the hardest for is NBA superstar, Allen Iverson, who she dated in the 90s during the peak of both of their careers.
“I met his whole family. We flew to Japan. I had never been to Japan. Ooo, I hope I ain’t telling too much. It was crazy. And I would get up in the morning… I’m a grandma’s child. I’m very domesticated. I like cooking. I like cleaning. I like folding. It’s therapeutic. I used to wake up and pick his clothes out and cook breakfast…The things he liked, just to make sure he was happy. And he spoiled me and made sure I was happy,” Da Brat said.
She continued, “I was like, ‘This is it!’ But then I think you know, basketball players? Hoes. He had a baby mama, some kids. He had a lot of stuff going on. So it lasted for a good while. Both of my grandmothers, they were alive. They loved him. He was so sweet to them. It was good for a minute. It was good for a long time.” But ultimately Iverson’s playboy ways were a red flag and, “it just didn’t work out.”
By now both Da Brat and Iverson are in relationships with other people. Brat is happy in love with Dupart, the first woman she’s gone public with, and Iverson with his wife and “baby mama” that Da Brat referenced above, Tawanna Iverson.
